Moving abroad and living in Switzerland was one of the best experiences I ever had! The things I’ve learned by living in a diferent country are something i’ll always carry with me.
Do you know what the best part was? Feeling Independent!! Even though I depended on my mother financially, I had no one in my house asking me “where are you going“, “where have you been?”. On that matter I was independent as all decisions were mine to take with no interference or comments from others.
Living in Switzerland | Getting out of my comfort zone
This experience taught me a lot. I learned I CAN survive on my own. Plus, there’s nothing better than getting to an unknown place and just go out to explore. But, most importantly, I learned the value of money and how to save.
There are a million things no one tells you and that you wish you knew before you go. It’s all part of the adventure. From the everyday obstacles and having to overcome them, to getting lost, losing your mind, crying and overcoming your fears. But mostly It’s about doing WHAT YOU WANT despite what other people think.
After all this time, I see my move to Switzerland as A ROLLERCOASTER. A million ups and downs, but a time that I now miss because I guess you can only appreciate something when you loose. And even with the bad times Lugano made me go throw, the good memories are the ones that keep popping in my head and making me nostalgic. I think I will miss my Switzerland home for a while, since the house was so good with my own balcony that had an amazing view.
Living in Switzerland truly was a challenge and it was the first step to entering the world of travel. I didn’t know it then, but these months living abroad would change everything. I would return with a strange new feeling of wanting to get out and explore. Home would not be enough after this experience and my heart would soon call for adventure. I learned later that there’s a perfect word to describe this: wanderlust.
