    I love travel and almost think about travelling to the unknown on a daily basis.. Not only that, I'm obsessed with living in places that I'm unfamiliar with, and always have the urge to drop everything in a heart beat to go and live abroad..

    I'd love to hear your adventures, and (or) how you managed to pack your shit and start a new life abroad. Whether it was for work or for your love of travel I'd love to know.

    Being insane. That led me to get the fuck out of my comfort zone and live outside without any fear or hesitations because i badly want it, and i need it.

    Being stuck in a rut makes me mentally unhealthy. I don't wanna be burden to anyone so i just went out. XD

    And i love japan a lot haha. XD I've been wanting to go elsewhere but, japan is really something i wanted in my heart because of the language, it gives me a challenge. And then, the culture.. It's weird and i love anime that when i went to japan i feel like the anime came to life. XD hahahahahahhahaha. Dang it! I'm so excited as fuck.

    You know what's in your heart you just follow it.. My friends would say I'm brave to do it given that i don't have anyone with me who'll go there.. And i don't know anyone there.. But that makes it more exciting! Everything is in your control. It's like playing sims. XD

    You hold your life, and you do what you wanted to do.. Because if you do it, you'll be content and you'll have no regrets..

    It's hard, but the satisfaction of overcoming every hardships is worth it.

    So go bro. Spread your wings and fly. Just do it. There's actually no reasons. It's in your heart. That thing will drive you to places unknown. It's passion.

    I haven't moved abroad but would move to Canada if I could. My girlfriend is up to it. I did move across the country from Wisconsin to Texas, so that's like a different country in a lot of respects lol

    It wasn't all that hard. I finished grad school. Sold most of my stuff, packed the remaining bits into a backpack and went. It's actually refreshingly easy to leave a place and move on to a new country or city. Actually getting settled in another country takes effort and resilience to inevitable setbacks but overall I've found a really great experience. I guess it helps not to be too attached to familiar surroundings and/or people and not to be afraid to get out and explore on your own.

    What's the worst that can happen?

    Where would you want to move to in Canada? I lived in Vancouver and the Rockies for a short time.

    I have all the confidence within that mentality. Where'd you move to?

    Moved from the Netherlands to Australia. Traveled back and forth for a few years before settling permanently about 5 years ago.

    If anything; keep it simple and tick off the basics before worrying about details. Like, visa, work or study rights, a roof over your head and enough funds to tie you over a couple of months.

    I haven't moved to or lived in another country. But I have stayed in Mexico for 5 months and Ecuador for close to 6 months. I love traveling. I love not just to site see but to learn about the culture and observing people. I do find it interesting and fun making friends with people where we can't speak each other first language.

    Going to an unknown area makes it exciting. It also really helps being curious, resilient, and humble. I'd really love to go to Japan as I haven't been there but very curious with the culture and animes. I'd love to go back to Italy. What I seen about Italy so far I really like. Ooh Spain also I wanted to explore there more but sadly didn't have enough time the last time I was there. Ok I'm getting excited about traveling, must make plans....

    Old thread revival.... I love to travel, & experience new cultures, foods, & people. Some tips I could offer would be to do your research ahead of time. I check on the climate predictions for the time of year I will be arriving, the currency exchange rates, transportation, mapping, housing, local markets, & even job search, depending how long I will be there. Once I have a plan in place, packing is easy. I've found that telephone, & internet service, is best taken care of when you actually get to your destination. It turns out to be much easier, & simpler, that way.

    When I was planning my move to Alaska, I applied online for various job positions first. I did the interviews via phone, & with a video app. I sold, or gave away anything, that didn't fit in my vehicle. I planned my driving route, including ferry schedules, & prices. Then I looked up places to stay along the way. I mapped out the best areas to live, so that I wouldn't be too far from work. Especially since the winters there, are more brutal than what I was used to. I calculated how much I would need to travel there, & get myself settled, before actually getting my first paycheck from the new job. Since the town I was going to was pretty remote, I researched what items I should take with me ahead of time. I even planned on taking a class for driving on ice. I love logistics!

    I have found that every place is so different, it just depends on what part of the world you are going to. And yet we still have the same things in common, food, water, & shelter. Not to mention, income/budget, transportation, & now, internet! Once your basic needs are covered, everything else is cake or gravy, in other words, it's extra.

    One universal tip is, always eat at restaurants/food vendors, that have a lot of customers, because that usually means they are good. Another tip is to keep your valuables, out of sight, & your bags in front of you, so that thieves can't reach into them, without your notice.
