12. Everyone gives you advice about everything. 
11. You must haul around a lot of extra luggage. 
10. Upon arrival, you are exhausted.

9. Everything is much smaller.
8. You lose days of sleep.
7. There's a serious language barrier.
6. You are easily disoriented.
5. Everyone wants to come visit you.
4. You start to shop online - a lot.

3.There's a learning curve.
2. No one can imagine what it's like until they've done it.
1. It's really scary and totally unknown - but definitely worth it.
