It’s one of those “once in a lifetime experiences” – working abroad. It’s exciting, fun, and outright scary. But at the end of it all, you would have had the time of your life. On top of that, the experience would affect you in ways you haven’t thought of. Read on to learn more.

You improve your language skills

I know what most of you must think about working abroad! Wow, living abroad must be amazing. What will be my impressions? Will I be able to return to routine? Will I return a different person? Will my friends still be my friends? And so on.

One of the first things you will learn is a foreign language. Isn’t that amazing?! When you live at home, trying to make yourself attend and learn a new language can be slow.  And when there is a lack of progress, you might eventually give up. But when you travel and work abroad, learning  a new language isn’t an option anymore – you must learn it to survive. Being immersed in a different language forces you to adapt and learn at an exponential rate. You don’t have to become fluent. You will probably speak with an accent, but it will make it easier for locals to spot you and come and talk to you, learn about you, know who you are, and perhaps even become your friends.

When to go to Iceland

There’s really no bad time to visit Iceland due to the abundant activities you can do all year long. But if you’re pining for the aurora borealis, it’s best to target November to February; however, you can see them anytime from September to April. The northern lights can be seen on a dark and clear night. In the summer months, and especially in July, 24 hrs of daylight will keep the northern lights away.

I prefer coming here in the winter. There’s something majestic and pure about landscapes covered in snow. If this is your first time coming to Iceland, I highly suggest the winter months. You can always come back in the summer for a different experience.

If you’re not keen of crowds, early to late fall and early spring might be good times to come. You’ll still be able to do summertime activities in early fall. In late fall, you can beat the crowds and can claim to be one of the first people to see the lights for that season. There’s still a chance to see the lights in early spring. The changing landscape might also offer candy for your eyes for days.

Iceland holds an annual Winter Light Festival every year during the first weekend in February, but double check just to make sure. Hallsgrimskirkja gets lit up on the first night and on the last night, city center will be in darkness for an hour so you can take some epic pictures of Leifur Ericksson among the milky way (if you’re lucky and the sky is clear).
