Travel Advice

I have travelled and lived overseas for over 15 years now. During this time, through a lot of trial and error and a few up’s and down’s, I feel that I have learnt a fair amount.

I’d like to pass on what I’ve learnt and share some tips and advice to make your life easier. Whether you want to travel and explore the world, find a job abroad or live as an expat in another country, I hope my experiences can help.
