Trying New Things Abroad

I said it once and I'll say it again... Living abroad is all about trying new things

Being open minded is Life Abroad 101. Why would you move to Japan if you don't plan on trying any Japanese food? Why live in Chile if you don't want to experience any of the culture? What's the point of eating McDonald's and KFC all the time when you live in Ghana?

This is my attitude towards learning about and experiencing everything a country has to offer. Adjusting to wine at lunch & dinner in Italy to eating bugs in South Korea. If it's culture related I'm with it. I want to see what's really going on in other countries, not just seeing the tourist attractions and leaving.

In regards to pretty much everything my motto is: I'll try anything once. How can you say eating fish eyes is nasty if you've never done it? How are you going to tell me Italians are racist & you don't even have a passport? How you know??? I listen to all the advice and "information" people have, but at the end of the day I'm going to do it anyway. Your experience may be completely different than mine.

I am an adventure junkie. Alligator as the appetizer? I'm with it. Ziplining through the forest? Sign me up. Backpacking in Spain? What time do I need to be ready? I could've said no to all of the above, but then I wouldn't have had those AMAZING experiences. Long story short: I'M WITH ALL THE SHITS.

This is what life abroad is all about. Purposefully stepping out of your comfort zone & broadening your horizons. If you're really about that life take a leap & join this expat joyride 🤪
