Works Overseas & Why?
sometimes hear people talking about "running away from
it all" and "escaping America" (or other countries).
But more often people are running to what they
see as an interesting and exciting lifestyle and career
opportunity. Fulfillment of a dream of actually
experiencing the world - rather than just seeing it
through the window of a tour bus or a television.
A very wide
variety of people! You will be quite surprised - maybe
even shocked. To a large extent they are people just
like you. People who saw an interesting opportunity and
author went out for dinner with an experienced lawyer
from Chicago - who had just finished his certification
course for teaching English. What?! Yeah.
He has also
met other former lawyers, a hotel manager, tennis
instructor, construction worker, retired military
people, social workers, business managers, a factory
manager, journalist, psychotherapist, retail sales
staff, public school teachers, retired people, a
petroleum engineer, and many more. And those are only
the ones he asked! After a while - you won't even be
surprised any more!
people stay overseas?
the hard question. Mostly because they are enjoying
themselves, meeting their personal and financial goals,
and just don't feel the need to go home. The author
recently retired on Phuket Island in Thailand. Did he
start out with that goal? No. But he loves it there.
do go home permanently at some point, but there is a
small percentage of us who find the lifestyle just too
enjoyable to go back "home." For the author/webmaster -
now - "home" is Phuket and Thailand.
