I have always flirted with the idea of working abroad, wondering what it would be like as a freelancer. Is it as glamorous as it makes out to be?
When you think about freelancing abroad you're probably thinking of sitting somewhere that overlooks a beautiful picturesque view, favourite tipple in one hand and a laptop in the other. As freelancers we have the freedom of working anywhere in the world, our office is just really a laptop and internet connection.
As some of you may know, I was recently given an opportunity to contract abroad, Dusseldorf in Germany to be exact. Granted, not as glamorous location as it could be, nor is it the first place you think for a holiday or city break. I worked for Sapient contracted on-site at Vodafone on the Vodafone 360 project. You may have seen the above-the-line adverts in the UK promoting the Vodafone 360 handsets and services.
