    Hi,


    I've just accepted my first international job in the primary campus of an
    incredible, well respected school in Hong Kong
    to start August 2012.


    I'm really excited about the opportunity and looking forward to the change
    of lifestyle etc. I’ve never lived in a city before or visited Asia.


    I was wondering if anyone had any advice on taking the first step into international
    ed; meeting new people, dealing with loneliness, missing family and friends
    etc.


    Although it's early days, I figured it would be wise to rent a room
    initially. The salary is good and the experience will clearly be amazing. I've
    always planned to go abroad but inevitably, now that it’s actually happening, it's
    a little daunting.


    Any advice etc would be MUCH appreciated!!


    Cheers,


    Dave

    Hi Dave,

    It's a great place to live and work! PM me and I'll give you some specifics. Let me know which school too as it will impact on your accommodation options.
