I’ve often wondered what it would be like to move home. Not within the country but out of the country.
I have had a few friends uproot themselves and their families and move to a different country and most of them have moved to Australia.
When I asked a friend – why Australia, she gave me several reasons and thinking upon them, they were rather sound.
For one, she was getting more for her buck – in relation to her home. She sold her home in the UK and got a massive 4 bedroom home in Australia. And I mean massive. The rooms were huge with walk in closets and en-suites. Bliss. What’s more she even managed to throw in a swimming pool. Heated. Covered.
In fact, after seeing pictures of the house and having serious house envy, I had a browse on the net for houses for sale in Brisbane and I saw some beautiful homes. Not that I’m thinking of moving. Just so that I can moan more about the size of my bedroom!
Besides, the home, she also managed to land herself a plum job in a managerial level before she even moved and the organization was paying her airfare and moving costs. I mean, some people are born lucky.
I don’t know if I would be brave enough to leave everything behind and start over. Maybe not. I’d worry about everything – home, schools, friends.
Have you ever moved countries or are you thinking of doing so? What’s your experience? I’d love to know.
