Should We Move Abroad in Our Twenties? with Mathias and Benedicte

Welcome to Love Your Expat Life, a podcast that provides you with the tools to live the life you love no matter your location!

This episode is especially important to me as my in-laws from Norway, Mathias and Benedicte, share their journey of living abroad in many different countries including Oman, Taiwan, & Scotland.

This young couple, who is 20 years younger than me, are at the stage where they’re debating whether or not they should live abroad. Benedicte feels stuck and unsure about next moves while Mathias is very content.

With all the questions swirling about, join us as we explore their thoughts about next steps. They also expound on how travel helped them mold their life up until this point & how they have embraced different cultures to expand themselves.

We also discuss:

11:22– feeling trapped

15:03– expat life comes with challenges
