Following Your Dream Abroad

“Two million people of working age have left Britain over the last decade ... Around 149,000 British citizens emigrated last year” – The Telegraph Jan 22, 2013.

Long days in the sun - Is this the reality of living abroad?

With the constant news of austerity, recession and bad weather on the way it is very tempting to think that the grass will always be greener on the other side.

Today we follow on from last weeks show Living the Dream in a 2nd Language and delve into more deal about the other issues faced by creative ex-pats abroad.

If you’ve ever been tempted to try living the dream abroad we look into what research you need to do and the questions you need to be asking before you go.

- Would you have considered living in a non-EU country?
- How often to you travel (for work or play) back to the UK?

- Has the digital age made living abroad easier for the ex-pat community?
- What should others (thinking about relocating abroad) be researching before they take the plunge?
