Americans Share The Biggest Differences In Their Lives After Moving Abroad

Making the decision to move across the country can be a daunting one, not to mention the decision to move to a new country. Moving abroad isn’t for everyone, and there’s a lot of uncertainty surrounding it. While it can be nerve-racking, there’s a lot of benefits to it.

Thanks to one Reddit thread, Americans who live abroad are sharing the biggest differences in their lives now, so others know before making the move themselves.

“I’ve lived in a few countries outside of the US: Romania, Moldova, Bulgaria, and Georgia (the republic). Main everyday benefits are public transportation is really easy, convenient, and cheap to use every day. I also eat out a lot more because it’s much cheaper and more relaxed.

“I haven’t had to deal with health stuff much, but when I have, it’s awesome and life-changing. For example, I recently partially dislocated my shoulder and am able to afford out of pocket service at one of the best physical therapists in my city.” —Reddit / Persimmon_Leaves
