Although the highest peaks have already been scaled, the Amazon has been explored, and the deserts have been mapped, there are still many who move abroad because it’s an adventure. While I think there’s a bit of the adventurer in anyone who willingly pursues an expat life, there are some for whom it is the primary reason they leave their home countries.
You May Be an Adventurer If. . .
- You enjoy learning a foreign language just for fun
- You can’t wait to eat fried sheep’s eyeballs
- You think of swimming in shark-infested waters as a minor challenge
- You don’t want to climb Mt. Everest because it’s already been done too many times
- The thought of living in the same place for 10 years gives you nightmares and makes you break out in a cold sweat
You May Also Be an Adventurer If. . .
- The thought of living in the same place for 10 years gives you hives
- You enjoy meeting new people with backgrounds different from yours
- You’re willing to try most new foods
- You get excited about visiting a new city because there’s so much to explore
- You want to learn a foreign language because that way you can talk with more people
You’re Probably Not an Adventurer If. . .
- Your idea of fun is an evening spent poring over maps, timetables and contracts
- You avoid meeting new people
- You think living in the same place for 10 years is a good start
- You worry about running out of antibacterial hand soap
- The only words you learn in a foreign language are “bathroom,” “police” and “hospital”
