7 Reasons Why Every Australian Should Live Abroad At Least Once

They say life begins at the end of your comfort zone.

Living and working abroad is actually way more achievable then you might realise. These are three ways you can make it happen.

#1 A Working Holiday

The Australian government has agreements with several countries that allow young Australians to live and work overseas for one to two years on a working holiday visa. Eligibility criteria vary per country but you can choose from countries like as Argentina, Belgium, Canada, Finland, Singapore, South Korea, The Netherlands and many more.

#2 Teach English Overseas

As native English speakers, Australian English teachers are in demand all over the world. A university degree combined with TEFL or CELTA qualifications can get you a job that will let you immerse yourself in countries like Brazil, Japan, Vietnam, Spain, Mexico and several others.

#3 Freelancing/Remote work

Working as a freelancer often means you could work from anywhere in the world (with internet). A survey by Upwork found that 3.7 million Australians are doing freelance work. My freelance work has helped me travel, work and live abroad since 2013. May be it’s time to consider what your freelancing options might be?

Overseas travel is eye-opening. Living overseas? If you’ll pardon the hyperbole, it’s life changing. Now pack your things and go!
