As an Expat in South America, I often get people asking me about my experience and if it is easy to settle and find a job in Argentina because often they are curious to find out if they could do it themselves. I have been living and working abroad for the last 15 years and I have to say that when I came to Rosario nearly 2 years ago, I didn’t know how long I would stay. I loved it so much here in Argentina that I decided to stay and I have not looked back since.
As in any place in the world, Argentina has its good and bad points but as ever, I decide to concentrate on the positive side of my experience as an expat and I try to turn the rest into something positive by learning from it. Anyway, with the spring here and summer well on its way, I love this city even more so.
Today we went for a nice walk along the river and I had brought my laptop with me to catch on a couple of things (I know it is Sunday but I am so passionate with my latest project, Anywhere in the World that I decided to take advantage of this beautiful day and write a couple of blog posts) and as you can see on the picture, I could have picked a worse place to do some work.
So to go back to my first point, many people have the desire to go and live overseas but they don’t know where to start and how to go about. With the current world recession, even more people are looking for a better life abroad or are willing to lead a location independent lifestyle, where they can travel the world and still earn a living by working remotely. Expatriation is not an extended holiday and it usually involves some planning and researching otherwise you will need to work even harder in order to integrate into your new community and make the most of your new life abroad.
I have to say that the more experienced you are about expatriate life, learning new languages, networking with people from all around the world, the easier it gets.
