Travelling can be deeply enjoyable, but there’s always a truly sad moment... you know, the one when we have to leave and return to our normal lives (sigh). Have you ever wondered if it was possible to make the magic of travelling your everyday experience? Well, maybe it is. In this day and age, it has never been easier to pack up your life and move to a foreign country. In many cases, you’ll find that it’s even more enjoyable than travelling since you’ll be able to discover your chosen land on a much deeper level. In today's post, we’ll take a look at some useful tips that’ll help you to make the move as smooth as possible.

Choosing the Right Spot
For those of you who haven't yet noticed, it’s a big ol' world out there! If you’re going to make your overseas move as successful as possible, then it’s important that you choose the right country. There are some countries and cities that are obviously easier to move to than others. For instance, you might find it fairly difficult to move to the likes of Tokyo if you don’t speak Japanese. However, Barcelona, on the other hand, is a lot more accessible due to the fact that it’s an international city. As well as thinking about which countries you’re drawn towards, remember to also check out the visa situation. There’ll be some corners of the world where you’re able to get a visa relatively easily (depending on where you’re from) and some spots where it’ll unfortunately be more or less impossible.

How Will You Earn Money?
Of course, it’s all well and good wanting to move to a new country and allowing the excitement to dominate your agenda but, don't forget, there are some logistical matters that you’ll need to think about beforehand. For example, how are you going to earn money while you’re there? Answer: there are multiple ways. You can find online work, allowing you to work from anywhere remotely with a stable internet connection - it's definitely worth browsing to see if there are any jobs related to your profession. However, if you’re searching for a new adventure to go hand in hand with your new life, you could look at getting your TEFL certification which will allow you to use your language skills to teach English all over the world.

Making the Move
When you’re travelling, all you have to do is pack your suitcase, and you’re on your way. When you’re moving to another country, things are slightly more complicated to say the least as, evidently, you’ll need to take much more stuff with you, if not EVERYTHING. Instead of trying to handle this task yourself, pass the job to professionals such as My Baggage; they’ll help to ensure your move abroad is as smooth as possible. When it comes to moving yourself, be sure to pick the most straightforward flight possible. You’ll want to be refreshed and ready to get stuck into your new life when you land.

Settling In
Finally, remember to be patient and give yourself some time to settle into your new surroundings. It can be a little daunting to move abroad, and there may be times when you're feeling a little home sick and get the urge move back home. However, if you wait it out for a couple of months and let the neophobia disappear, you’ll discover it was the right move.

Thank you so much for reading today's short but sweet post on moving abroad, a subject that never fails to strike a chord with me personally as it's something my family and I went through moving from England to France approximately 5 years ago. 

Have you ever been tempted to make that move abroad after a wonderful holiday? If so, where to?
