Has the New Year inspired you to consider moving abroad? Life certainly rewards those who embark on new adventures, and moving abroad is certainly one of them! Oftentimes, a change of scenery and lifestyle can bring you a substantial amount of benefits to your life; from experiencing personal growth to obtaining a global perspective. Below are Brits’ preferred country picks.
Spain. From fiestas to siestas; a culturally enriching way of life
According to the United Nations, Spain hosts the largest group of UK nationals living throughout Europe, and that’s no surprise. Spain’s endless supply of sunshine throughout the year, significantly lower cost of living, and rich gastronomic culture are the perfect mix of incentives when considering moving to Spain. It also doesn’t hurt to know that Spain boasts the highest life expectancy in Europe!
The USA, 50 states of variety to choose from
The country is truly a melting pot of people, cultures, food, weather, and so much more. The US ranks as Brits’ second most popular relocation destination in the world. One of the main advantages of moving the US is the space availability you’ll be able to enjoy. Most likely you’ll find yourself taking advantage of more space at home, in your garden, or just as you’re going about your daily business. You can really get more for less, especially given the highly beneficial exchange rate.
France, land of immense variété
France is bursting at the seams with culture. It’s elegant vibe and world-class cuisine are among the top reasons Brits have made France the third most popular relocation destination throughout Europe. Throughout every corner of the country, you’ll find a very international crowd of expats working in global companies. Moving to France is a dream for many, but with some careful planning, you can make it a reality.
Be smart about your removal costs
Depending on how far you move, it can be quite expensive to move to a new city. If you’re moving to another country, international removal costs may stretch your wallet. However, there are great platforms out there where you can compare different company quotes and ratings to see which one gives you the most savings!
Helpful hint: redecorating opportunity
One of my favourite things about moving is that it gives you a fresh start on how you decorate the environment you live in. It’s a great opportunity to update your decor and let go of things you no longer need. Removal companies usually charge based on the size of the truck, so if you can opt for a smaller truck because you’re going to replace some stuff anyway, why not use the savings for a bit of redecorating?
