A couple of years ago I was planning to work abroad for experience. I wanted to work somewhere in Singapore or Hong Kong with my ex girlfriend. But I was comfortable with where I was then. I think working abroad will be my last resort. I enjoy my life and work here and I think I'll be better of working here with my friends and family.

I was born in China,and now I lived in Beijing.I think living abroad for a couple of years will be great.Not only can we learn different cultures and knowledge it can also enrich our lives.

i believe, most of us have such a dream because everyone is born with curiosity and tend to look forward to new things, which also include exotic things from foreign country. moreover, young people are always easy to feed up with the same things and people they met day after day. i was born in China, and still be here. yes, i have the same dream with you. i'd like to travel Europe, Australia and USA in my future.

Before I haven't considered the idea of working abroad. But now that I've got out of college, I feel that the employment situation here in the Philippines is really not that good. I would like to experience working abroad, though I'm also aware that there are really advantages and disadvantages of doing that. But as much as possible, I would like to give it a try while I still can. I don't know but I'm feeling hopeless in finding work here. Or maybe I just don't understand what's happening in my life now. I'm always praying to God that he'll give me the patience and faith to wait for that right time when I will find the right job for me.

I want to live in my home country nor home town because I always considered that there's no place like home. I look forward to travel other places or countries to take only a vacation with enough load financially to enjoy.

Hello and welcome to MyLot. I was born and has been staying here in the Philippines. I've been to Malaysia just once for a visit. It has always been my dream to work abroad, preferrable in the European countries but I've always wanted to go back to the Philippines when I retire. I like it here. This is my comfort zone though I never doubted myself that I can get along with other people of other cultures. Probably by the time I get married or have kids, I'd want my kids to grow up here in the Philippines where they can be with their relatives. For me, there's still no place like your sweet home.

I was born in England. I studies in Wales. Now I am back living in England again. When I was 18 years old I worked as a children's nanny in Finland. I went on a journey around the world when I was 20 years old. On that wonderful trip I had a working holiday visa for Australia. I did some work as a children's nanny, factory worker and charity collector. I really love traveling to different countries. I used to dream of emigrating to Australia but now I am glad that I stayed in my home country. If I had ended up there I might not have had much chance to travel. Living in England flight I find prices are reasonable. Last year I visited South Africa and this year I am going to Canada. Yes, it is exciting to live in another country.

I did live abroad for a few years, spent six months living in one country then moved to another, had a great time, its exactly like you imagine, all new and exciting, getting used to the culture, the weather, the different food, its a great experience! I miss it, now Im home theres nothing new and exciting, however been home has its good points as well!

I was born and live in the UK. I went on holiday to lots of places in Europe during my teen years, but never longer than 10 days at a time. When I was at University, me and a friend talked about finishing our nursing course and then going to work in Bermuda. It seemed perfect: Beautiful weather, the most up-to-date equipment anywhere and very well paid. Ultimately, my friend decided not to go into nursing and I didn't have the confidence to go alone. I still regret the decision to this day but still don't have the confidence to do it alone.
