I chose to go from scientific tags(biological, radiative and the obscure chemical) to engineering. Engineering is an easier career path. But always kept my eye on ball as it were. When I was in UK after my family fell apart I worked in Ireland for about 2-1/2 years. Them travelled Europe, then Asia pacific including Hong Kong, Japan, north america(Washington state sand Hawaii, California).
I no longer have will to travel after Australia and New Zealand. Think you just get bored of the new !
