I think you’d regret not going, that’s a once in a lifetime experience. You make new friends, learn the language, see amazing things up close, eat amazing food… GO. I wish I’d had an opportunity like that before having children.

@cbee: Where in Italy exactly? Do you know any Italian at all?  IT sounds like a great opportunity, and personally, I don’t like doing those things alone, so I would love to have that opportunity with my SO.

I moved abroad with Darling Husband 5 months ago (from St. Louis to England) for his job and I absolutely do not regret it! We both love England, I am throroughly enjoying a new country and it’s really awesome to see how others live. Not to mention travel, sightseeing, trying new food, learning about new cultures, etc. It’s been an incredible experience so far. We are here for 3 years.

Seriously, how many Americans can say they lived overseas for an extended period of time? Most people I know haven’t even been out of the country before.

Well if you an afford it, I always say take every opportunity! If it advances your career, your relationship and your cultural experience , i think its worth it. Id rather die knowing I lived, than play it safe to never experience the world.

When would you start?

Looks like we may be moving to Argentina in the coming years, and I’m pretty excited! The idea of living somewhere new sounds amazing, and yes a bit terrifying at times but I think you can look back and laugh at how quickly you acclimate and learn to love the situation.

@cbee: I would go in a heart beat! Store your stuff, take a suit case, camera and live life!

I agree with what KatyElle said – when we look back in life, we more often regret the things we didn’t do rather than the things that we did.

It sounds like a great opportunity!

Plus it’s a year. Anyone can live almost anywhere for a year, why not live somewhere awesome?

Yes. Yes. Yes.

Take me with you.

ETA: I have lived abroad in the past, once on my own and once after Fiance and I started dating. I would do it all again in a heartbeat. If we could find jobs there and move there now I would move.

Right after Darling Husband and I got engaged I ran off to Europe for a year for grad school and it was one of the best things I’ve ever done. We had to be long-distance for a year, but we visited each other when we could, and when he was on my side of the pond we went traveling and saw all sorts of incredible places.

If I had the opportunity to do it again, I would, whether Darling Husband could come with me or not! So obviously my answer is a big resounding yes. You have the rest of your life to feel settled. Go adventuring while you can!

I wanted to say. KatNYC2011, Evie19, and hana.schmitt are all expats too. I’m sure none of us would mind a PM if you’d like to talk to one of us. 🙂
