Moving abroad guide

Updated: Sep 28, 2021

Does travelling the world excite you? Do you want to know how to travel and work abroad? Then this is the perfect article for you. I have worked abroad in Thailand and am a freelance writer and small business owner. I have been an ESL teacher in Thailand and am a 23 year old solo female traveler. So lets get into it!

How to prepare

Okay so you have already decided you want to move abroad, but now the huge daunting question is now what? What do I do now?

1. Prepare a cushion of savings

Yes, prepare some savings. It is just the smart thing to do. You never know what could happen, so having a few months of cushion of savings can save you for any type of emergency. Research the cost of living in the country you are moving to then save about 3-5 months of living in that country. This amount is dependent upon where you are moving of course and on your own decision. I recommend about 3 months of savings, if you know you have a job lined up for sure. I had some horror stories with taking a job in Thailand for my first go. I luckily had more than 5 months of income for Thailand standards and was secure. I did my research again and easily found a new teaching job that was honest and true for work standards.
