People sometimes ask me why I am leaving New Zealand to go to live in Paris.
It’s a difficult one…
Looking first at what I have here in NZ; A nice house in a nice suburb close to the beach, with a favourable climate and relaxed lifestyle. I have a great job working for a good company and a generous salary.
I will be going to a city with a population twice that of NZ. I will have no fixed income. I speak little of the language. I will know nobody.
I think the reasons are thus as follows: Adventure, excitement, uncertainty, challenge, change.
I know the reasons may not be particularly rational or responsible, but they are reasons nonetheless.
I will miss what I leave behind, and look forward to what lies ahead…
