LIVING ABROAD AND LOVING IT
These girls share their best bits of advice.
LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM: LIZ, 25 “Save, save, save before you go! And get in touch with people you know living there before arrival as they can give a better idea on where to live, how to find work, etc.” BOLOGNA, ITALY: MELANIE, 25 “Be prepared to adapt to the different way of living. Italians are very laid-back but as soon as I adjusted to it, I really began enjoying myself.” PARIS, FRANCE: MONICA, 29 “Join an Internet group for expats like
meetup.com, which hosts different groups based on interests, such as running, art galleries or fashion, all with strangers who have one thing in common – trying to figure out life in a new place.”
