I managed 3 years before I got 'bored'. I was working part time so had loads of time to explore and did pretty much explore every little corner of the place. I also travelled to various parts of Asia every Easter, Summer and other long public holiday breaks. I went home Christmas and part of summer too (I was a teacher so lots of hols!)

Of course I wouldn't have known it at the time but personally I think I would have only lasted a year in present circumstances. The money would have had to be 'incredible' for any longer. Maybe if I was younger and didn't have kids at home it may have been different.

Everyone's different I know but I just worry some of the people arriving now don't know what it will be like.
