They say in Russia that moving house is equal to two brands. If you have experienced a brand in your life, then you know what it will be like :)

Moving house in the same town, is bad enough. If a different state it's even worse, while leaving your country, can only feel like desertion.

That kinda depends on the country you're moving to... and your reasons for moving :)

I wanted to move, for a great job, but had now changed my mind, for the good, I find.

Thanks for the comment!

1) THINK REAL Hard BEFORE YOU DO

2) Make WRITTEN LISTS of every thing, person place and cultural aspect that you love where you are

3) Cross off ONLY those you are willing to do without (Including speaking your own language )

4) Gather data (can't have too much) about your destination - and tick the positives , make a cross against anything you don;t fancy on a 1 to 10 scale of dislike

6) Balance those lists against one another

7) Never go to live in place you didn't visit

8) Never go live in a place you had only been to on holiday

9) IF you're a woman with GRANDCHILDREN ... don;t even think of doing that! You might like to escape your own kids, but you will miss your GKs like a flower misses water

10) Be sure you can afford to get home if it all turns to custard

3) ABSOLUTELY do not return home in the first three years of leaving ...



cheers

Always make sure you have a back-up plan.

Always make sure you can return to where you came from.

Why traumatic? That can only occur if you set your heights to high or have expectations that are way outside reality.
Moving to a different country should be fun and exciting, as long as you have an open mind and NO expectations.

Oh it could get traumatic very easily, and very quickly too, if you haven't done your research.
