My dream was always to live abroad. Many years of hard work and a Master’s degree later, I succeeded! I left my home country and never looked back.
Funnily enough, moving countries actually put me off doing it again, so I have no plans of relocating. But I can’t help myself – every time I visit a new place, I immediately start imagining how great it would be to move there!
Here are three places where (I daydream) I could live:
1. Marrakech, Morocco
Growing up I wanted to live in Paris. The French capital was the first place I visited in Europe and it completely changed my world view.
Then a few years ago I went to Marrakech and got that same feeling all over again: now I’m absolutely obsessed with the place (I’ve been four times), the souks, the food, the amazing energy.
How I wish I had a whole riad to decorate!
2. Berlin, Germany
It took me a long time to go to Berlin, and I so shouldn’t have waited!
The city is absolutely great – there’s so much to see and do. There are lots of different neighbourhoods where you can spend days finding new interesting places. And there’s so much to learn about the country’s history, with remnants of the Berlin Wall and Checkpoint Charlie serving as reminders of how much the place has changed.
Get a flat in Prenzlauer Berg for the best Sunday brunches ever.
3. Belgrade, Serbia
I visited Belgrade at the end of my Old Yugoslavia tour. The city is very understated, so it’s not as if there’s tons of things to do.
But then we hit the bars, and it was THE BEST. There are so many places around, from cocktail bars to French bistros, and the prices are amazing!
A great place to buy a little flat and hang out a few weeks per year.
