This is an interesting conundrum to have....I lived in Russia teaching English for four years. Loved it and often wish I was still there. Moved back because the pay, while quite good for Russian standards, does not make it a viable option if you have any plans to retire in Australia. I also taught in Taiwan for a couple of years. Liked it ok but no desire to stay there long term. Happy in Australia now but plan to travel a lot.
Would you consider staying there/I'm currently 5 weeks in to a 12 month stint living in Vancouver. Moved here from Perth on a working visa.
All good so far, amazing scenery and a great place to live. Definitely no regrets at this stage and hard to imagine there being any.
It was a bit painful sorting out the house, telstra, phone, bank etc but all definitely worth it.
Although I'm here with my wife so 2 incomes is certainly handy..
whats the real reason?I had a job offer in the US a few months ago but turned it down.
With the trump crap & my life here in Oz why would you subject yourself to that crap?? Yeah change is good but holy crap we're lucky here in Oz & have no freakin idea half the time IMO.
Lived on and off overseas for years..Who here has left Oz to go live overseas?
Tell us your story.
How long did you last?
Difficult etc etc
Trump prevented you from doing a stint in the US? C'mon man!
turning down an opportunity in the US because of the President is a bit weird. I doubt Americans really notice him in their day to day lives.
Ok ok. Fair call. It obviously wasn't just that. However, that did go into my reasoning.whats the real reason?
I respect that... good call.Ok ok. Fair call. It obviously wasn't just that. However, that did go into my reasoning.
What I was trying to get at was stability.
I like & have stability here. The area I was offered a job in the US wasn't as beautiful or in keeping with my personal tastes as where I am now. Would love to holiday there but I love the more laid back lifestyle that I can get here. What you may call boring I call chilled & I enjoy it.
Money wise I'm better off here.
Family & friends are all here.
A heap of reasons.
I think when I go to the US I'd rather it be when there's a little more stability over there.
