If you ask emigrants for the reasons you get a variety of answers that include, among other things, adventure, nature and climate, job and career opportunities, poverty, bureaucracy, health, lower taxes, positive holiday experiences, love and family, leisure and quality of life.
And there are certainly many more reasons.
Not only unfortunate people are thinking of leaving their homeland, on the contrary, emigrants have created communities around the world, through people who wanted to make a difference and continued to cultivate their culture in the new country.
In almost every country in the world, there is a street, a city, or a street with a name to honor people who have rendered outstanding service to their host country.
Before you pack your bags and leave everything lying, you should be clear about the motives and goals to properly plan your emigration.
Here are some questions that you should answer in advance.
- What are your reasons for emigrating?
- Do you have financial reserves for the beginning and for emergencies?
- Do you have sufficient language skills?
- What does your family say about the plans?
- Do you already have a visa or do you know which one you qualify for?
- Are you healthy and well insured?
- What are your job opportunities in the target country?
- What happens to your apartment or house, your furniture, objects and where do you want to live in the future?
- Are you aware of what you are leaving behind and what you will miss?
- Do you have an exit strategy?
Many people have found happiness in their destination country, including Matthias Brandl, who took the step 12 years ago and has not regretted a day of it.
He founded a remarkable project on the small dreamy island of Tablas in the Philippines, Sunshine Village, where he would like to share with others.
The island of Tablas, is a beautiful natural island, which can have a good infrastructure. There is an airport that connects the island with the capital Manila. Ferries connect the island port Odiongan with the cities of Batangas, Roxas and Caticlan.
But Tablas offers even more, the island is largely natural, wide beaches as far as the eye can see and sun full. And you’ll be surprised, the first thing you see in the morning when you leave your house, a friendly, smiling Filipino.
In this environment Sunshine Village is to emerge. Tablas Sunshine Village is on one side of a resort with its own large pool, great sea view, which is suitable for rent. On the other hand, it should be a home for people who want to be happy here. The entire system will be operated in the future with solar energy. Of more than 14,000 square meters only 3200 are built, so that the new village blends seamlessly with nature.
Planned are a restaurant, a kiosk and a large swimming pool. Every investor has the opportunity to plan his house freely. There are 30 houses planned in the complex, which ensures a relaxed life.
And how is the paradise to be reached?
There are 2 ways to reach your dream destination, a comfortable and an even more comfortable one. Either fly from Manila to Tablas in just 1 hour and 15 minutes, or drive to Batangas by car / bus (about 2 hours) and catch a ferry.
The interest of future homeowners was so great that Matthias Brandl had to prefer the start of construction on June 2018.
