It’s easier to work abroad. It’s an amazing job and you learn so much about different cultures. 9 months ago
Finished the abroad contract! it was a really nice experience that, despite some frustration moments, turned out to be worthwhile in the end :) Plus I learned a lot during this time. 2 years ago
I interned in the Indian Himalayans at a social enterprise, working on improving the local environment, albeit it was only baby steps.
I applied through my university (keep an eye out for such opportunities) when there was a program looking to send students interested in entrepreneurship out to India to gain some working experience.
The wonderful experience of living in a Himalayan village for seven weeks, with my window framing a beautiful view of snow capped mountains and a summer stream trickling right next to my room, lulling me to sleep…
It was unnerving at first (thankfully I had 3 other interns with me), and learning to live outside my comfort zone was not easy. Yet, by the time I was set to leave, I couldn’t bear to leave the friendships I’ve made with the locals and the lovely fresh mountain air behind.
If you have a chance to work abroad, don’t hesitate. Just go! Because if you don’t throw caution to the wind, and explore your own limits, you might not get another chance. :-) 2 years ago

Seriously, if you have a change to move abroad and work, DO IT! Really, there is nothing to lose. For the past several years have been living abroad in Marrakech, Aix en Provence, Zurich, Budapest, Cairo, Istanbul, Damascus and finally Mumbai. If you get a chance to do this you must. Living in a place, getting to know it’s perfections and flaws, learning the language, tasting the culture and just diving into what makes our world amazing and building relationships is priceless. Trust me, it will make your life remarkable. If you live abroad or are thinking of doing so, feel free to contact me. I have a huge network of friends all over and would be happy to connect anyone.

I worked for over 3 years in U.A.E. as an IT Development Officer. 3 years ago
This goal obsessed me, all the time I would read travel brochures and daydream about living in another country. So I just did it! I signed up with SWAP working holidays www.SWAP.ca and within a few months I had a New Zealand working holiday visa and a ticket to Auckland in my hand! I worked and traveled around New Zealand for 6 months and had an amazing adventure. I started out working as a tour guide at a haunted abandoned prison, which provided the perfect romantic setting to meet my English boyfriend, Lee. I then woofed on a farm for a while, which allowed me to check off “milking a goat” from my list of goals. Then Lee and I lived in Christchurch on the South Island for a while. We traveled all around the South Island and now I have followed him back to England! I am now living in the UK and looking to start working here! What started off as a working abroad experience turned into finding love and getting the adventure of exploring two new countries for the price of one!
I have learned so much from traveling and working abroad. I feel stronger, wiser, and more independent. I think it’s the best thing I ever did! 3 years ago
