    Life abroad: the good, the bad and the plain ugly
    Life abroad: the good, the bad and the plain uglyRecently there has been numerous articles around the importance of going out of your comfort zone and the lack of highly skilled graduates in the UK, especially in areas such as soft skills.

    #11 Thanks for your comment @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher, I'm glad you enjoyed the read. I think it's such an important experience that often a lot of people stop themselves from experiencing. Often it's the fear of the unknown, but once you get past that it's a great experience.

    This was a great read @Alexandra Galviz. Thank you for sharing your experience. My son and his fiance at the time moved to London after College and worked over there for 3 years. They traveled to so many countries, met so many people and experienced more in life than I've yet to experience. It really shaped their worldview and I'm so happy they chose to leave and work overseas. Posting this to twitter, this is a great story with wonderful messages contained within.

    Brilliant buzz, Alexandra. I like your message, "It may be difficult but through the failures you reach opportunities previously unavailable, stretch yourself beyond what you thought possible and grow more than you ever imagined." These wise words are universally applicable. Cheers!

    Great stuff! I would recommend stepping out even further next. Perhaps consider Asia? I thought I'd go to Asia for a couple of years and ended up staying almost 30 years!

    #3 Exactly Mohammad, the start is always the trickiest part. Usually followed by the end when we don't want to go home and leave behind the community and new life you have built!

    #2 Yes Vincent, there is always something new to learn. Even at times when it's hard, it's actually then that we are learning and growing.

    you have identified perfectly well the various stages of adaptation.... I often say you only really understand what it is to be a foreigner until you become one.... :-)

    Living abroad, at initial stages, may pose too difficult. Once, you forget home-sickness, begin to embrace the alien country by making new friends and mingling with them, then there's no boredom. Life abroad becomes more simpler!

    Studying abroad is definitely a challenging experience. Away from comforts of home. But definitely a steep learning curve. I enjoyed living abroad for ten years studying and living in a different environment. The culture abroad can be different. The way people speak, the way people do things. Always something new to learn.

    Totally agree @Alexandra Galviz! I think is more the good. It's very important to go abroad and have different experiences. Thanx
