So I'm close to leaving the corporate rat race and moving abroad to South America, possibly Peru or Ecuador. I've lived overseas before in Asia and have traveled a bit through SA. My Spanish is good but I'm a typical 30-something Canadian male.
I plan to rent out my Toronto condo and head south for 6 months, a year or several years. I love the adventure of just leaving and learning as I go. I enjoy finding a new home and learning a new culture. The question I have is: what do I do when I get there?
I mean, day-to-day, what do others do to fill their time? I could take a job if it is rewarding but it isn't necessary for living expenses at the moment. I would love to volunteer or find something positive to do with my time. Basically I want to be a retired person with freedom but don't want to be bored.
Any thoughts? I want to continue to practice my Spanish, I enjoy helping people and socializing. Anyone else here just pick up and leave? What did you end up doing to have a fulfilling experience?
