I won't argue with your desires, but maybe there's a way for you to go abroad and continue to teach in the areas you are passionate about. However, if you're determined to break into SAP, I would recommend reading some overview books of NetWeaver technology and even watching some SAP webcasts. I don't recommend ABAP programming -- SAP is moving towards Web-based programming and, in general, the trend towards programming is "offshore"...
so that won't help you with your travel goals at all. If you really want to become an SAP programmer despite all this, then I would combine a study of ABAP with a study of Web-based SAP development.
