Research Where You Want To Live Abroad

I am always asked,"How do I get started with the project of living abroad?" One of the first tasks is to do the research. Decide where in the world you'd like to pass some time. Criteria should be, but not limited to, things like, culture, language, climate, economic growth as well as lifestyle.

Consider yourself to be a reporter with an open mind who wants to get all the angles of the story. Obviously, you will take your search to the internet but dont stop there. Network with others who have or plan to live abroad as well. Keep a file and/or notebook of all the information you collect. While ultimately the decision must be yours, you want to have the most thorough information available to make that decison as well as to stay motivated in taking the big step of living abroad.
