I rarely travel abroad for work. From memory, I've travelled to Japan, Hongkong and Singapore for professional purposes over the past two years. How often do you travel abroad for work? Let share your story!

i never travel for work. haha i am not in the position where travelling is required for work - though they may send me across to other locations that our bank serves, i think we are still not the first options to be flown over to branches, etc. not even for trainings as our trainers are here in manila, and we have training programs here in the country already.

Quite rare as well, but as a student and researcher, I've been in Bangkok for 2 years during my Master Degree (I've experienced the coup), and then Japan for several times for conferences and workshops, and South Africa ( 3 months internship/network attachment last year)

I worked as a Seaman for 28 years and i traveled a lot both at sea and land. I visited many places of the world, met different kind of race, and different kind of women of course. There i saw the beauty of God's creation, the calm ocean and the anger of the sea. I encountered many hurricanes and strong gales, ship got aground, search and rescue mission, pirate attack, and war zone trading ... well in short that's a seaman's life.

I am a primary school teacher in my home country. At different times in my life I have worked and studies abroad. When I was aged 18 years old I went to work as a children's nanny in Finland. I cared for three children and taught them English. When I was aged 20 I let out my cottage, bought an airline ticket and got a working holiday visa for Australia. I got work in Australia really easily. I worked as a children's nanny, a charity collector and a factory packer. It was a way to travel around the world on a budget. I was a student at university and there was a chance to study in mainland Europe for 4 months. I went to study in the Netherlands. It was interesting to study English Literature with post graduate Dutch students. I had an interesting time going with lecturers out to see student teachers on their school experiences. They liked to video the student teacher and then replay it with discussion.
