You have extra money in the bank, and you don’t have a job in your home country, so what are you going to do? Time for some adventure. Start fresh and move abroad! Some people may wonder just how to pack up and move to a new country, is it possible? Can you really just leave almost all your belongings behind and find a new life?
It is possible, but you will have to be committed to the change. Especially if you are moving to a location where the culture is different from where you are used to living. You will also have to throw some things away, you can’t take it all with you, because it’s going to cost way too much to move, and where will you store it?
Planning is a big part of any move, but even more so when you are thinking of leaving the country. You will have to research about the new spot you plan to move to, what jobs are available, and possibly if you can line up a job before you even move. Don’t forget you’ll need to know where to stay when you get to your new home. Hotels can be expensive, so the faster you can set up an apartment to rent, the better off you will be, and the more money you can save to place in the bank.
Know the weight limits of your bags, and the allowance of how many bags you’re allowed to carry on your flight. If you have more clothes than you need, pick carefully, choose the best clothes, and the types of clothes you’ll need in your new location. If you are moving to a warm climate, get rid of the heavier clothes in your closet, you’ll most likely never need them again.
Most household items you have at home will not be coming along. Find a way to sell them to people, or even give them away to friends. This is because many items will simply weigh up the luggage, and clothes are more important when compared to a DVD player or something else you may be considering to take along.
Don’t forget that you are trying to make a new life when you move, so you can buy new things. It’s more important to make sure you get as few things to take along as possible. Rebuilding on the other side after you’ve settled in is a better choice!
