Very short story about how I started to with Poland

Long time ago I was working for a big corportion. I was still young and one of the thing about my job that I enjoyed the most that time was that I had a chance to travel a lot. I really enjoyed the fact that I can spend 1 month in Barcelona, 1 month in Amsterdam, and another month in Washington. I felt that it was kind of travelling for free. Normally, I was living in London and I liked it. I had my apartment there, my friends, family and everything else that was making me happy and what I needed to completely chill out after so many business trips.

And then 1 day, completely unexpectedly, I have received that email that I was chosen to open the office in another city. At the beginning I wasn’t totally aware what it meant for me. I thought that it meant just more short trips. But then it turned out that I had to move to Poland. Not only travel to Poland but entirely moved there. I gotta admit that I didn’t know what to feel. I should also admit that I wasn’t very happy about that. I not only had to give up on London and move to other city, but also to 1 of those Eastern European countries, I had never been to before. But made a decision to give it a try. This was supposed to be just for 2 years so I convinced myself that this was not so bad after all.

So you might be wondering how it happened that I have been in Poland twenty years longer? My reply is rather simple. I simply fall in love with this country. It wasn’t love at the first sight. It didn’t happen immediately. It took a while. But as soon as I moved there I noticed that men and ladies are amazing. Even though they do not smile on the street and they are rather quiet, they are greatly helpful if there is any problem. You can be sure that if anything is going wrong, there is always somebody who will react or help you. I also fall in love with Polish women.

They are extremely charming. I believe that it is rather pointless to say that my wife is also Polish? Moreover, I fall in love with Polish customs. I really love that they are very close with their families and they spend all of these amazing traditional holidays together. Certainly, sometimes there were also though days. For example, when I couldn’t say anything in Polish and nobody around could speak English. However then I made a decision to sign for polish course warsaw and now I speak Polish- more info: polish course warsaw! So as you can see – it was not always easy, but that was obviously worth it.
