is this the end of my subaru owning days?

Had an email from a mate of mine offering me a job.

sallery 3k a month (36k a year, which is about double what i earn now).

sounds good you say, but here's the catch.

he lives in south africa, and accepting would mean moving out there.

realy don't know what to do, the moneys a huge increase, and living costs out there are much cheaper so he tells me, but its a huge move and i supose a bit of a risk.

what do you guys and gals think? anyone got anu experiance emigrating, anyone gone in particular to south africa?

Best thing would be to go over for a couple of weeks if you are truly considering it....... That way you can make an informed decision

Personally wouldnt interest me-quite happy as i am-money aint everything-however could understand someone going out there for a few years makin ya money then coming bk an gettin a job as youve got now-nothing to lose really just depends on your life at the mo i guess, an only you know how ya feel about that.

Hi
If I was single, living at home and a Draughtsman. I would go for it.
Not sure your situation but if its the above. Go for it.

If you really want to get an Evo I suppose this is the way to fund it, I mean buy it...
But if your wanting to go out there and better yourself, then I'd say go for it...

I'd always be wondering what if IF I never did anything about it and that would annoy me...

Do as Peter or Gareth says, give it a go and if its not your thing, come back

well not single, but living at home and a draughtsman.

done a bit more research, from what i remember its around the johanesburg area, car prices are stupid out there so would end up with a shed if i did.

plus it turns out its more a case of you could earn up to, which puts me off.

think its looking like i'll stay
