I lived abroad in the middle east for a couple of years on a sebatical and had everything open to me to come back to...a good job, pension, my house, relationship etc. etc.
Anyway, I am considering going again as once you have had a taste of it it's hard to settle back here. I have a job offer, really good salary but there is no job security and no pension, just a load of cash every month. I reckon I could do about 5 years away but I am no spring chicken so have to consider things like making sure I contribute to a state pension and a private pension. I'd like to keep some ties here... (we all moan about the UK but it offers a lot of things many countries don't). Anyone any advice on what to consider setting up a pension or an offshore fund, anything else to think of?
I'd expect to be away 3-5 years, and who knows what happens then...either back here or maybe another country in the far east where eventually my pension could be worth more?
