Taking Travel Further: Ways To Choose The Right Location For An Overseas Move

Sometimes, even travel can’t quench wanderlust. No matter how many times you go away, returning home leaves you feeling flat. It’s a horrible feeling and can lead to dissatisfaction. But, it’s also an exciting sign that you need to make a change. Perhaps you need to consider a move abroad. After all, once travel gets into your veins, it’s a difficult thing to shake.

Of course, moving overseas is petrifying. All significant changes are, especially when you’re moving from everything you know. You’ll have to leave your job, friends, and family to make this work. But, if it’s what you want then it could be the most rewarding move you’ll ever make. Besides which, Skype and other such programmes ensure you can reach home at the click of a button.

Of course, a move like this shouldn’t be taken lightly. To ensure you don’t regret your decision, it’s essential you pick the right destination. And, to help you do that, we’ve put together a list of pointers worth your consideration.

Choose somewhere like home

You’re moving is to get away from the everyday. So, you may rebel against this point. But, for your first overseas move, it’s worth choosing somewhere which at least resembles your home country. For the most part, an area which speaks your language is all it takes.

You’re leaving enough behind that being unable to communicate could send you over the edge. Choosing an area which speaks your language is the best way to get settled in a new country. The good news is, there are more than 50 English speaking countries to choose from. Picking somewhere like Gibraltar will even mean you’re still on British territory!

Even countries which aren’t English speaking may have English residents. Areas such as Marbella are sure to see you feeling at home. As well as being a hotspot for tourists, there are plenty of English speaking residents to put you at ease.

Think about countries which mean the most

It’s also worth considering countries which mean a lot to you. You are, after all, going to be living there. It needs to be an area which is close to your heart. If possible, merge this with the first point. Did you have a holiday to die for in Marbella? Or, perhaps you had a fantastic experience in another English speaking country, like Malta.

Test it out

You don’t need to jump straight in and buy a house in your chosen area. It might be worth renting an apartment for a few months. If you have your heart set on it, look for an apartment to rent in Marbella and see how you like it. Or, perhaps you want to look for something short-term in Gibraltar.

Wherever you choose, a six-month lease may be your best bet. That way, you won’t have lost much if it doesn’t work out. Leave your furniture in storage to ensure you don’t have too much work on your hands if you don’t like it!
