Working Around the Globe: How Australia Compares to Abroad

One of the best things I’ve ever done in my life was pack my bags and head to the airport with a one way ticket to London.

I had no idea how long I’d stay, or what I’d do for work.

I did have a slight meltdown in the days leading up to my big departure when I decided I wasn’t nearly brave enough to make the leap, but by then it was too late to back out, so leap I did.

In the end I stayed for four years, ended up working with an amazing team at the BBC, and was able to travel Europe and beyond in a way that just wasn’t as easy or affordable from my Aussie home.

That’s the thing about living and working overseas. Not only do you get to experience a different culture at work, but your world opens up to new places and experiences.

Of course there are pros and cons to working in different parts of the world, which is why I found this report by Citrix Go To Meeting so interesting.

It compares places I’ve already lived to places I’ve been curious about living and working in, with a look at how Australia, the UK, the US, Sweden, Germany, Brazil and South Africa stack up against each other in a whole lot of different ways.

So if you’ve been thinking about packing your own bags and settling in one of those countries, check out how your new home could compare to your current one.

And enjoy the potential adventure.

As a journalist who loves to travel and is fond of a chat I’m oh so happy when I’m sharing travel tales and tips through my blog and on my weekly travel segment on Sydney Radio 2UE. When I’m not travelling or writing about it I can be found out and about with friends, curled up at home with a good book or watching an addictive tv show promising I’ll stop after one more episode.
