Moving to a different city whether it is for work, education marriage, or any other reason, is always challenging. But it is also exciting because we get to explore the local culture, cuisine, and a different way of life. Here are the best things about moving to a different city:
Many of us live at home if our parents live in the same city, at least until a certain age. However, if you move to a different city, you will get the chance to live on your own. Don’t forget to research the city for rent and other expenses, because depending on the city, the same space could cost you more. For example, renting a house in Hyderabad is cheaper than rent in Mumbai for the same type of house.
Apart from getting your own place, you will also have a different level of independence. You will be incharge of taking care of your finances, paying bills on time, and more. Many living at home often don’t learn to cook, but moving to a different city, you could learn and start cooking on your own too. You never know, it could turn into your favourite hobby.
Whether you eat to live or live to eat, try the local cuisine of the city you’re moving to.
India is a melting pot of different cultures, and different cultures offer different varieties of food. If you’re moving to Bangalore, don’t forget to try Neer Dosa, or the classic south Indian meal in Chennai, or have the best biryani in Hyderabad.
Many often consider moving to a different city, a fresh start. This is because you move away from our family, friends, and your daily routine. You get to start over in many ways, and building a social network is an important part of it. Going out, meeting new people, making new friends can be exciting because you get to make new memories.
Social media has made it easy to make friends too with many Facebook pages dedicated to connecting people who have just moved to the city.
Many don’t realise how much they care about their family and friends until they move away. We all take the normalcies in our life for granted. But when you move away and start missing home, every visit becomes special and you may cherish your time with your family and friends more than you ever have.
Yes, moving to a different city is scary, but there is so much to look forward to.
It is a new beginning to a different life, one that you might fall in love with.
