Moving to another country will not be easy, and there will always be things to complain about, After the honeymoon phase, things start to look not as nice as they did at the beginning.
Being an expat
Since we moved to Switzerland, we managed to do day trips to places that were hard to reach while we lived in Romania. Having to take visitors to show them around, we also enjoyed discovering the nearby places.
Moving in Switzerland meant that we had to meet new people every day, people that were born and raised in very different environments compared to us. Read here more about our experience.
After moving to another country, you discover so many things that you have never known about. For us, the public transporation system in Switzerland looked out of this world at first.
Three months is not nearly enough to know everything about a country, but it shows you more than a tourist will ever see.
What did we need after moving to Switzerland? What, you thought it was going to be that easy? Of course it wasn’t, changing countries is not an event, it’s a process that can take longer than expected.
We thought that leaving to Switzerland was going to be a road trip, but to leave from Romania is never as easy as one may think.
There are so many things to do before your relocation to Switzerland and these are all the things that we did before leaving Romania.
Finding a place to live is never easy, but it’s harder when you need it in a foreign country, you don’t speak the language, you don’t know anyone there and you’re also far away when looking.
In 2018 we moved to Switzerland and I think it was the best decision for us. But life as an expat or immigrant is a challenge. Read all about it in this diary.
