These days, as a cer­tain bud­get air­line would have us be­lieve, ev­ery­one can fly. But even bet­ter than just trav­el­ling to a dif­fer­ent coun­try, is hav­ing the chance to ac­tu­ally live there for a while.

And for­tu­nately for young peo­ple to­day, there are a va­ri­ety of ways to do just that, from be­ing a nanny in a for­eign coun­try to hav­ing an ex­tended hol­i­day by crash­ing on a stranger’s couch.

Whether you’ve thought about see­ing a bit more of the world by tak­ing a gap year, or just spend­ing a few weeks liv­ing with lo­cals in a for­eign coun­try, we have a few op­tions here you can con­sider.
