10 Life Lessons Learned from Living Abroad

I was recently looking back on the times that I moved abroad, (three in case your counting) and I was thinking to myself what were some of the lessons I learned along the way. So I decided to jot them down in a blog post and share them all with you.

Let me know if you can relate or not with any of my lessons learned.

Cities worth a Revisit????

I am definitely the type of person that if I love a city enough I will revisit it, no matter how long my "Wishlist" of other cities is. Some of these cities I have traveled to multiple times in the same year and for one of them even twice within the same month.

So what makes these cities so desirable to me and millions of others? First of all they all have some amazing Sites to visit and explore. Times Square, The Eiffel Tower, The Berlin Wall, The Sydney Opera House so on and so forth are world famous sites for a reason. The next thing they all have in common is having some sort of Green Space. I love being outdoors and all of these cities have lots to see and do that involves being outdoors which scores high in my books. Then of course there is the Shopping and Food, I mean this is pretty self explanatory... Lastly is just the overall Atmosphere - sometimes the vibe of a city can just bring you down, but not in these cities. Each of these cities has something magical about them that keeps me coming back for more! What are your Revisit cities?
