"I will say one thing: Go!"
It's funny how attracted most of people are about traveling abroad. For vacations mostly, with a well-known return date.
But what about leaving everything in the country you've always lived in to broaden your horizon ?
I had this opportunity myself. I lived in Shanghai for 6 months (academic exchange program). This was a wonderful experience and I shared precious time with my friends and other classmates.
However, after 5 months, I had this weird feeling of not being in the right place. I started to feel bad, surely because of "home-sickness".
It's funny because I felt the same on my very first day in China. The first night, lied on my bed, I was wondering : "Why did you came here for 6 months ?".
When I woke up, day 2 in China, I was so happy to start a new experience that I forgot my yesterday's "blue" feeling.
It makes me guess that leaving abroad is not for everyone.
I had the opportunity to stay in Shanghai, and find well-paid job as an engineer. But it didn't even cross my mind because of things like :
--- Family, Friends, Habits +1000 things (like pollution for example) ---
If I can share my experience with people that are hesitating to travel or leave their country, I will say one thing : Go !
You will see by yourselves if it suits you or not, but the try is 100% worth-it !
See you Space Cowboy..
