As Katy nears the end of her time in Rome (this time), Tiffany can’t help but ask, will you stay?

Or, more precisely, would you stay? Would you stay in Rome IF all the conditions allowed it: work visa, gainful employment, apartment?

Her answer might surprise you.

And it opens a discussion: how do you know when it’s time to go home, when it’s time to stay put, when it’s time to move on, when it’s time to hit the road in search of a new adventure? 

How much do age and career play into it? Does there come a time in life when it’s “too late” to take off in a new direction, or is that simply a self-imposed limitation?

And once you’ve been an expat in one country, are you more or less likely to change countries a second time?

We discuss this and more on the latest installment of The Bittersweet Life, Episode 220 {STAYING?}.
