Hi loose-talk guys,
Clearly off-topic since this forum is mainly for migrating to Australia while here I am thinking about working in Europe or Japan.
As a software developer, I was thinking it might help making it easier to find a job. I suppose the goal is work for 1-2 years in Europe or Japan while making use of the weekends to explore the parts of those countries.
I haven't purchased on any properties in AU yet due to sky-high prices here in Sydney so there's nothing keeping me here; although I do want to buy a house maybe in Brisbane AFTER exploring EU or Japan.
Just wanted to check this forum if someone else had done this already or is planning to do it? Please share your experience and what are the tips you for me (ie. I tried to search for a forum like pinoyau version for pinoy Japan but couldn't find something similar)?

If you can take risks, go for it. I wished I was able to do that when I was young but too many responsibilities.

i concur with this.. kung wala ka pa naman stuff to think about like mortgages etc, then you should pursue it.. gusto ko din sana mag backpacking pero I can't now kasi dami na kelangan i consider lol
