Before we begin, let me say moving abroad is not easy and although everyone loves to write about the benefits, it’s not a fairytale. It’s especially hard if you’re moving to a country unemployed like I did, but whether you can get a job depends on a lot on your field, qualifications, visa, language skills, and the country itself. These are the seven things that I wish someone had told me a year ago to make moving abroad easier.
The first reaction to saying that you're moving abroad typically involves some degree of shock and questioning. The next reaction involves even more questions on how you're going to pull it off.

However, I wanted to outline some of the most important (and difficult) questions that I asked myself (and my parents inevitably asked me) prior to deciding to move abroad.
Doing your research is quite important when considering moving to a new country with a Significant Other. These are the questions I thought most about prior to moving and the ones that were most important in my decision to come along. (Questions under the cut)
