One of the most challenging aspects of moving to a foreign country is leaving the comfort of your friends and family. You know these people, relate to them, share interests, talk with them – all comforts we usually take for granted but quickly learn to appreciate when separated by distance. This can be one of the strongest mental roadblocks to making the switch to a job overseas. I struggled with this very problem before making my move to Spain; I didn’t want to let go of what I had become comfortable with.
