Living abroad make you feel "countryless".

Almost 8 years ago I  moved from Poland to Ireland. It's seems like ages, and yet, after so many years leaving abroad I feel like I'm "countryless".
I was born in Poland and I spend there most of my life, but I don't feel like I'm belong to Poland. I'm not homesick, and in fact every year I feel a little bit less polish because of Western Europe influence.
So I ask myself: " Who does that make me?"

Well, I prefer to think about myself as an inhabitant of Europe. And now , when European borders are open , thanks to EU ( European Union ), we are closer and more open minded as countries&people then ever before in history.

In Dublin for instance you can easily meet people from all over the old continent by just walking through streets, and that is so cool! And wherever I travel I can hear polish language. :)
So maybe next time if somebody asks me where I come from I will proudly say : I come from Europe!


Do you miss your country while living abroad?
Are you planning to come back to your homeland someday?
Share your opinion!

Thanks!

A year from today

Hello! Anybody here? It's been a while, right? Not sure if blogging in still trendy, but that doesn't matter one bit! Because today is the day! I will call that new series " A year from today ".
Exactly one year ago I started my maternity leave and I don't need to tell you how my life is different now from that life I used to live before I've become a mom. But it won't be about what was before, but rather it's gonna be about what's ahead of me. How my life can change in a year from today? Let's see! 
So make yourself a nice cup of tea, sit down and be the witness of my journey.

Life keeps me entertained. But the quest for a dream job is still on.
I've destroyed my old journals today. Deliberately. And I feel lighter by 5 years.

I sit on the sunbed, one I bought 2 years ago and I listen to the sound of the ocean. It feels like we have never left this place. Just our apartment is better. We swapped bin view (#budgettravel ) for the ocean view (#bigspenders ).  And Canarian Princess is now with us. Finally at home. ;)
We wander around the streets and refresh our memories about things we have done and food we have eaten during the time we lived here. And we are doing so well with our Spanglish!
