What I Love About Living Abroad

Living abroad takes the many benefits of travel to a whole new level.

In this two-part episode, I list the Top Ten Things I Love About Living Abroad (and think you’ll love, too!).


Living abroad takes the many benefits of travel to a whole new level. But there’s much so more to the expat lifestyle than posting a sweet Instagram photo.

 

Living abroad is one of the best life experiences you can have. In this two-part episode, I list the Top Ten Things I Love About Living Abroad (and think you’ll love, too!). 

 

Living abroad helps you give less f*cks while boosting your sense of self-confidence, strengthening your resilience, and providing a more open-minded perspective of the world.

 

If you’re curious about what it’s really like to live abroad or if you just want to hear from a fellow expat who relates to you, this episode will provide the insights and real talk you’re looking for. 

 

Throughout, I share stories and examples of how travel has helped me gain a broader perspective, taught me valuable lessons, and expanded my mind (along with my network of friends).

 

TOPICS DISCUSSED/WHAT YOU’LL LEARN:

  • How travel unlocks and stimulates your senses
  • Why you become more present and mindful when experiencing a new place
  • Endless options for fun + Seeing every part of life as an adventure
  • Increasing your drive to meet new people and to meet people of diverse cultures
  • The inevitable personal growth and development you go through while traveling
  • Travel as the best form of education
  • How living abroad boosts confidence and resilience
  • Developing a keen eye for BS and scams (aka becoming street smart)
  • Having a deeper connection to humanity and planet Earth + The impacts of climate change
  • Becoming aware of how history repeats itself 
  • More quality, memorable time with friends and family
  • The benefits of living and studying abroad when applying for a job + Integrating travel experience with your work
  • Opportunities for sharing your knowledge and stories with other people
  • Less stuff = more happiness!
