I'd probably take a three-month holiday around Southeast Asia, living cheaply and stretching it out before heading back home to Australia.

Housewife, 40 (Spain)
It's not a lot of money. I would go back to Spain and use it for food and other living expenses. It would probably last me about two months.

Lecturer (American)
I would go home and use it to get an apartment. I'd live on it while I looked for a job and maybe do a course to improve my IT skills.

Student (Spanish)
I would move back to Spain and start a new life. I would use the money to live until I got a job or started my own company.

There wouldn't be much money left after paying for my air fare home. I would use the rest for food and a place to live until I got a new job.

Living in Canada has always been my dream. I would move there and hopefully get a job in aviation, which is what I studied in Sri Lanka.
