last night I got involved with the awesome #ExpediaChat with Monica from The Travel Hack. I really enjoy getting involved with these chats because I’m usually left with lots of new additions to my bucket list. Last night’s chat really got me thinking about travel and the importance of experiencing a new country, its culture and people.
I’ve lived in a lot of places around the UK and each city has been very different. Some I’ve loved and others not so much. However, the experience has really helped to build and shape me as a person. I’ve learnt a lot about myself, friendships and the fact that Huddersfield is the only place where they call an arm cast a pot.
I’ve been living in Sheffield for almost 2 years, in the same flat and I’m starting to get very restless. It’s time for a change but I’m not quite sure what the change will be yet. Luckily, I’m self-employed and the majority of my work can be completed with just my laptop and phone. This means I have flexibility. I can pick up my laptop, pack my bag and work from anywhere in the world. I want to take advantage of this while I have the chance and have spent the afternoon day-dreaming of possible adventures to go on. I’m sure you know how easy it is to get carried away with researching new places to live and potential properties to live in. I doubt I’m alone in planning out my dream home over on Pinterest.
Along with Pinterest, browsing property sites and window shopping at the estate agents abroad has always been a hobby of mine. I know I’m not alone in this, my dad loves to do it and I know Fran does too. I personally find it helps me to keep building upon my dreams and future goals.
During my day-dreaming session I found this tool really useful from Property Rescue. It’s ideal for anyone thinking of moving to a new country. Even if you just want to test the water and see what the prices are like. I’m pretty sure I’ve found my dream home in Canada and there’s also also a holiday home waiting for me in Italy too.
As a bit of fun I thought I’d share 5 of my dream home locations with you:
– Nova Scotia, Canada – I want to enjoy more of an outdoorsy life.
– Palm Springs, USA – I’m a sucker for mid-century modern architecture.
– New York, USA – I want to be around positive people with a can do attitude.
– Oslo, Norway – I mentioned before, but I’m really in the mood to enjoy the outdoors.
– Southwold, UK – I’ve lived here before but I’m longing to be back near the sea again
If you could move to anywhere in the world for 1 year, where would you pick?
Thank you to Property Rescue for collaborating on this post.
