It might be a perfectly doable step to take, or if it’s more of a remote location that lacks key amenities that you’re used to, it might not be the best step to take. What you could consider doing instead is finding a similar location that offers more of the amenities that you are used to and require to live an enjoyable life. 


Think about the legalities


It’s also important when it comes to considering relocating to think about the legalities around the situation.

For instance, say you fell in love with an area of Ireland, you would need to think about how to apply for irish citizenship and whether you would be likely to be accepted for citizenship. Moving to a new location isn’t as easy as making the choice to move, there are always legal steps that also need to be taken into account.
