If you have a desire to go and work/study in another area there is nothing bad in wanting to do it.I have lived in a lot of places. Born in Wales, grew up in New Zealand, lived in Australia & are now in Spain. I have been all over America, A few places in Alaska, Canada, The UK, Europe and cannot imagine staying in one place
I would have a plan before leaving + keep in contact with the family. Let me know what you decide to do!
