"WouId you be ready to go and live in faraway countries if it meant getting a better life?"
Nowadays, a growing number of people leave their native country tosettle down abroad. Sorne even do not hesitate to go and live at the far end of the world, in Australia, New Zealand or South Africa for instance.
How can we account for such a move?
What are the main advantages of moving to a faraway country? Is it always easy to adjust to a new land?
Many various reasons can explain why so many people feel the urge to start out in a new life far from their native country. lndeed tbis is a golden opportunity to start all over again'/ sometimes from scratch and to set oneself a challenge. f As far as 1 am concemed, if 1 was offered the opportunity to go and work abroad, 1 would be quite happy to try my luck. 1 do not know whether it would improve my life or my standard of living and 1 must confess this is definitely not my main concem.
Actually, what appeals to me more than anything else, is the opportunity to discover new horizons as that must be both thrilling and exciting.

Furthermore it must be quite disconcerting at first, not knowing what to do or how to behave when you feel uprooted. What is more it may also be difficult to get used to a new climate, however sunny it is. 1 remember going to Florida a few years ago, right in the middle of winter and though 1 loved the sunshine, it was so scorching that 1 could hardly move! Nevertheless, 1 am sure these obstacles can eventually be overcome though it may take sorne time to fully adapt to such a new environment.
AlI things considered, even if it implies facing a few hardships, 1 am quite willing to make the move and start out in a new life abroad. ln fact, 1 am convinced it would not only make me more open-minded and tolerant but also be the chance of a life-time!
As the saying goes, "Fortune favours the brave" so it must definitely be sometbing not to miss out on ...
