This question has been coming up constantly inside my head for the last 6 months – to move and work abroad for a year, just. one. year. People that have done it talk about it and encourage me to do it but really I just don’t think I can – no not because I wouldn’t be able to make it on my own, because I’m sure boarding school and living alone for the last 5 years has definitely assisted in my independence 🙂
I would LOVE to go overseas, but really when I think about the idea of ‘dropping’ everything in my life right now I could think of nothing worse. My career, South Africa, all the stuff I have collected over the last few years and being so far away from my parents the idea just doesn’t seem so glamorous anymore!
I work in the perfect industry and it wouldn’t be difficult to find a job in a Hotel in the UK for a year, but here in SA I love my work, and I want to take my career somewhere and can’t wait for it to get there! The work and family ethos in my Company probably also has a huge impact on it as well.
Going on Holiday for a few weeks overseas – definitely and that is something I am going to start saving for 🙂 I love South Africa and I do not think I could leave this country for more than a period of 1 – 2 months. Plus what my parents say is right, I would not be able to be away from the structure of work for too long, I am not a drifter and get bored easily.
Ireland, Belgium, Italy, England, Austria, Paris, Greece, Dubai, America etc. – ONE DAY & all 1 at a time 🙂
And it all starts right here with Contiki Tours 😉 Time to start saving!
