Do you want to work abroad but you don’t know how? We discuss getting a holiday visa, teaching abroad, volunteering or even taking up a ski season.

It seems that now it’s impossible not to be constantly bombarded with posts on your Facebook, Instagram, and Snapchat feeds of people on luxurious white sand beaches, posing in impressive cityscapes, standing atop breathtaking mountain ranges, beaming with arms spread wide, or eating mouthwatering, exotic cuisine.

It can be difficult not compare these pictures with the grey views outside the window at work, the sad ham and cheese sandwich in your bag for lunch, and the general drudgery of routine life.
