You will gain new contacts all around the world and improve your language skills.

I heard from lots of my friends that animation is like a free holiday?

We are sorry to inform you that it’s not true. If you think that entertainment is only sun and nice people then save your time and money, and do not apply for this job.

Being an animator is not just sun, beach, having fun, but hard job as well. Sometimes you have to accept not very nice hotel guests, rehearse late at night or do things that you don’t like at all (like preparing materials or dancing with old ladies), but that’s the part of your job as well.
