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!

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!

I still can't wrap my head around it! How the hell I became a full-time student?! I didn't plan it, that's for sure. But I got this idea, in the back of my head and then I sent an email, went for an interview and bum! I'm a Fashion Styling student :D


Let's go back to the day I went for another interview. It was a job interview for an office assistant after which I knew I don't want to spend my whole day in front of the desk, answering phones and dealing with complaints and queries. No! No! No! I felt it in every part of my body, I don't want to stay here. I don't wanna do what I was doing before either. I lost my enthusiasm although I was pretty sure that I'm going in the right direction.

I got an extra push from my career counselor and I sent an email to college with the question if I can still apply for this year although the course has started already. On the next day, I went for an interview, showed my artwork and became a Fashion student. I cri…
