When life’s drudgery gets to you, the grass on the neighboring ground may indeed be greener. Naturally, moving to a new location may enliven your hopes for a better future. Relocation isn’t a bad idea, but it is not so easy either. You need to conduct a lot of research into schools, health care facilities, travel infrastructure, social community, and many more about the new place, not to mention which places your financial situation allows for. To make things easy for you, here are five destinations abroad that make a fresh start easy!
This sunny, tropical country is a popular destination abroad among American tourists. Nestled between the Pacific and the Atlantic Oceans, this country attracts tourists to its clean coasts, green jungles, and volcanoes. True to its motto “Pura Vida” (translated as Pure Life) this Española-influenced country offers hassle-free residential programs, good healthcare, and most importantly, good food. You can choose from coastal villages or developed properties to settle here.
Perched above North America, Canada is the most preferred country abroad for American ex-pats. Canada allures its visitors with a sound educational system, cosmopolitan culture, and endless adventure opportunities in unexplored forests. Toronto offers upscale jobs and modern city life, while Vancouver offers a work-life balance with opportunities to explore nature on the weekends. If you are retired or plan to retire early, European-styled Montreal or Quebec may suit you.
This tiny country in South East Asia is known for its international schools, high-tech job profiles, and well-maintained city infrastructure. If you are in your younger years, opting for this country can help you with a balanced work-life. Vacationing at exotic nearby locations — Thailand, Bali, Vietnam — is an added bonus.
This island offers an excellent work atmosphere and nature galore. You can enjoy fresh salmon and local vegetables for your healthy diet. Consider Auckland for the high commercial quotient or Wellington for its vintage ambiance. You can cover the northern and southern ends of the country within a few hours. Nature-lovers can explore a plethora of landscapes: glaciers, mountains, beaches, lakes, and springs.
A few years ago, Ghana rolled out a multi-year program to welcome African Americans. With increasing business opportunities in technology and low crime rates, Ghana has it all. Nature getaways, beaches, waterfalls, and national parks add to the charm of this West African nation. Not a surprise, Ghana is becoming a popular destination for American ex-pats.
