How To Move Abroad And Why It's The Best Thing You'll Do, by author and four time expat (including Costa Rica!) Jessica Drucker, goes way beyond the step-by-step checklist you need to get yourself abroad. The book also focuses on why moving abroad is the best thing you'll do, how to blend in like a spy, and how to learn any language. While Jessica believes that nothing - including language - should hold you back from moving abroad, you should start your language journey the minute you land by taking an immersion course or at least signing up for weekly classes. Speaking the local language - or at least making an honest attempt - allows you to truly feel at home abroad. You can find her book on Amazon, available here.
