Top reasons people move abroad

reasons to relocate

People tend to travel to foreign countries. In many cases, the main reason is not tourism but the opportunity to find a good job and to start a new life. What can possibly motivate people to leave their home countries and relocate?

The reasons are different depending on the circumstances of each person. However, here you can find some of the most popular reasons to move abroad:

Better job opportunity

If you are struggling to find a good job waiting around is not the right answer. Relocating to other part of the world allow you to access to a new job market and to choose a place you know has the opportunities you are looking for.

Love & Family

You may want to move abroad to stay closed to the people you love the most.

Maybe your partner need to relocate due to job reasons leaving you no choice but to follow him/her in order to preserve your future together.

It may also be possible that you met the person you believe to be the right partner to grow old together so you may decide to move with him to start a common life in a new country (probably his/her home country).

A new language or a higher job position are important steps in the process of personal growth

Broaden horizons

For many the desire to explore, to discover, is the main reason to relocate to a new country. Moving abroad allows you to immerse yourself in a new culture, see incredible new things, learn a different language and, at the same time, experience a change in every single aspect of your life.

Weather

Good weather is one of the main reasons to move abroad. Did you know that the 62,2% of young people in Britain are willing to relocate somewhere warmer?

Personal development

Although personal development is a broad concept, many consider a new lifestyle, a new language, a higher job position or the opportunity to meet new people as important steps in the process of personal growth.

Life quality

Another broad concept used to elaborate the Mercer Annual Quality of Living Survey. A survey created to help multinational companies compensate their employees fairly when relocating and placing them on international assignments.

In your case, what is the main reason for you to leave your country? Would you add any other reason to relocate? 

Krka National Park

Krka

During our trip in Croatia we had the opportunity to visit the National Park of Krka. Located 90 km far from Split.

The Krka National Park is one of the most beautiful natural spots in Croatia.

Our minds changed the moment we started our hike

Arriving to the park was not as astonishing as we thought because it looked as a common natural park that you can easily find in any other country.

After paying 110 Kn per person (around 14€ /16$) we were allowed to enter into the National Park and to take the free bus to go down hills. We were a bit disappointed since we were expecting something more “wild” (more natural) from the very beginning.

However, our minds changed the moment we started our hike. Instead of taking the bus we decided to descend the green hills of Krka walking down a natural narrow path from where we could enjoy an amazing landscape.

Once we arrived to the end of the path we reached a tourist area. From there you can choose two different ways:

  1. Krka National Park by walk
  2. Scradinski Waterfall and Ferrys

Krka National Park by walk

Following the main trail of the park the visitor can enjoy a nice walk surrounded by nature.

By choosing that option we learnt more about the national flora and fauna while passing through natural caves and waterfalls. Once we reached a high vantage point we enjoyed the wonderful view of the famous Scradinski Waterfall.

Down there, it is located a footbridge that cross the lake allowing the visitor to appreciate the immensity of nature. Furthermore, it is allow to have a swim in the lake to enjoy its pure fresh water.

Following the trail we reached the previously mentioned lake. After a nice bath in its transparent water we had a break laying down on the green grass.

As we wanted something more exotic we decided to walk around until we found a nature path which we decided to follow. Since it was not so touristic we could enjoy the essence of the nature and the incomparable views of the  Krka forest.

If you prefer to enjoy the nature of the National Park without wasting corporal energy I recommend you to take the ferry that sails across the blue river of Krka.

Here you can find more information about the natural and cultural heritage of Krka, the National Park´s price list and more.

Do not miss the chance to buy some traditional products

At the end of the path we found some antique traditional houses, rebuilt into souvenir stores, where we stopped by to find some presents for our friends. However, the most special products we bought were some traditional delicatessen made by locals; honey, oil, compote… Tasty and healthy products that I highly recommend you to buy if you ever  want to try real croatian foodstuff.

To finish the tour we decided to take the bus which drove us back to the main entrance of the park, where our rented car was waiting for us to keep discovering Croatia.
