Top 5 benefits of being a expat

11 Sep

Some would stay becoming a expat is a dream, while others think it is a burden. Being a expat is an amazing experience if you are prepared to put the hard yards in and then you will reap the benefits.

Of late I have seen a few negative article about being a expat and expats failing. So with that said thought I would put a positive spin on it.

Below are the top 5 benefits of being a expat.

1. Travel – to be able to see the world and travel to new and far away places.


2. Make new friends – make new life long friends. On my expat journey to date we have made some amazing friends that I will be friends with forever.


3. Career opportunity – enhance your CV or get the job of your dream. The world is your oyster.


4. New experiences – you are able to do things you never dream of or had the opportunity to such as cruise to Alaska, NYC for my 30th birthday, singing in broadway chorus or going to Canada for the weekend.


5. Life skills– being a expat adds to your character and life skill. Learning how to start and set up in a new country is a skill, gain self confidence to make new friends or start a new job is a skill.


Remember that being a expat is a choice. It is something that may not be forever and that others would only dream of doing. So enjoy it!
