    so interesting to read about this from a perspective I’ve never experienced. my eldest daughter and son in law has, having married as an Aussie and an American and living both places over time.

    I’ll consider this challenges yohh bit my mind still tells me there’s nothing as exciting as living abroad. According to me, challenges will be dealt with when I cross the bridge 😂😂😂😂😂

    This is very interesting. While I have never been an ex-pat, one challenge I know of from working in the insurance industry is the complexity of navigating different health insurance programs in different countries. Every country has its own way and they’re not easy to navigate.

    Oh, and I can’t believe any country wouldn’t force employers to deduct and remit taxes. I can only imagine South Africa must have a very high tax default rate. LOL

    Thanks for sharing another side of the equation to consider. I’d love to live abroad but I’m still hesitant to make the leap. I’m very family oriented, so not having my family close by will be a lot to adjust to. I’d never forgive myself if anything were to happen to them while I was overseas.

I'd love to read your thoughts on this!
