Things to do when you are 40 # 4 – Move abroad
I can’t criticize this idea as I did this when I was 19, (I am obviously in advance for my age!) when I moved to France. Having lived here for over half my life so far I can’t imagine how my life would have turned out if I hadn’t.
Number four in the surveyof things to do when you hit 40 I found at turning40.net is movinfg abroad.
It does seem to be a strange thing to do when you are 40 though, one would assume at this age you’d still have a job/career that might not necessarily be particularly mobile, and family responsibilities in the form of children, who are mobile I grant you, or older parents who aren’t particularly.
I’m assuming that aged 40 you aren’t quite ready to retire to warmer climes or any climes in fact, if you are please let me know what trade you are in, so I can have a go too.
So, let’s just imagine that you can just up sticks and go, where would you go? Would you want to go somewhere where you already speak the lingo? I’m not sure how easy it would be to learn a new language now. Would you be able to continue doing your job abroad or would you have to start something new, if so what?
So where would you go and why?
