That world is a big, beautiful place, to visit…and maybe it’s time to renew your passport, or even get one, and try out different countries for size.
If you could choose where to live. Anywhere in the world. Where would it be? And how can you be sure it’s the place for you?
In my lifetime I’ve lived in many countries, all across the globe. Having a Dad in the Royal Air Force will do that for you.
Every couple of years we packed up all our belongings and like some nomad tribe, off we went for another adventure in another country.
As exciting as this might sound…changing schools every couple of years, needing to begin again with new friendships or something as simple as extreme changes in climate often turned out to be more of a shock to the system than the adventure we were expecting.
But truth be told I wouldn’t change those experiences for anything.
We learned a lot about other cultures and to say that travel broadens the mind is a huge understatement.
We met other souls on entirely different journeys and discovered entirely different lives being lived.
And it was awesome.
And it put life into perspective in a way only visiting other countries and participating in a different culture can.
You simply don’t come home the same person as the one who left.
Remember what Mark Twain said? “Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all of one’s lifetime.”
So if you’re up for an adventure and wondering which country would be a great fit for you, check out this fun quiz.
Honestly, the country that came up for me was one I haven’t been to and have always had a hankering to visit. Amazing!
And encourage one another.
