Im 28, live in Australia, single, have a day job and 2 after-hours personal projects/businesses that I run. I'm doing pretty ok, but I have a desire to drop everything I have going on here in Aus and move to Thailand for 6 months, using the time and isolation to dedicate specifically to 2 endevours - training/personal wellbeing and my app development business. At present I have enough money saved to be comfortable over seas for 6 months, maybe a bit more, and that isn't taking into account the roughly $100 a week I have coming in from my business that happens wether I get out of bed or not. The pros and con's of either side for me: STAY HERE Pros - Established routine. Friends. Work going pretty well, getting skilled up. Cons - Little autonomy or variation in my work - bores me to tears. Circle of friends dwindling as people move away for work/study/marriage etc. Unsatisfied entrepreneurial/adventurous drive. GET THE F#$% OUTTA HERE Pros - Love Thailand, food, people, muay thai etc. (Typical whitey) Already have a handful of friends and connections there, both Thai and expat. Would love the freedom to really invest in my pet project fully and hopefully see it flourish. I've wanted to make a muay Thai based game for quite some time and being entrenched in the scene whilst working on it would be perfect. Cons - Leaving behind existing situations, friends and work etc. If all fails, I come back broke with no place to stay and start over again. Hard decision to make, and there is that cliche little voice saying you only live once, but I also fear ultimately making myself destitute chasing a dream on a shoe string. Please weigh in with opinions and experience if you would comrades.
