Very short story about how I fell in love with Poland

Many years ago I was working for a big corportion. I was still young and 1 of the thing about my job which I loved the most back then was that I had a chance to travel a lot. I really liked the fact that I can spend 1 week in Berlin , 1 month in Paris, and another day in Chicago. I felt like it was sort of travelling for free. Permanently, I was living in London and I liked it. I had my flat there, my friends, family and everything else that was making me happy and what I needed to totally chill out after so plenty of business trips.

And then one day, entirely unexpectedly, I have received this email that I was chosen to set up the office in another country. 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 needed to move to Poland. Not only travel to Poland (see dental emergency poland) but completely moved there. I need to admit that I wasn’t sure what to think. I have to also admit that I wasn’t very happy about that. I not only had to leave on London and move to other country, but also to one of those Eastern European countries, I have never been to previously. But made a decision to give it a try. It was supposed to be only for three years so I thought that it was not that tragic after all.

So you might be curious how it happened that I have been in Poland 33 years longer? My reply is pretty simple. I simply fall in love with Poland. It wasn’t love at the first sight. It didn’t happen at once. It took few years. But as soon as I arrived I noticed that men and females are amazing. Even though they do not smile to each other and they are not very talkative, they are greatly helpful if there is any problem. You could be sure that if something is going wrong, there is always somebody that will react and help you. I also fall in love with Polish girls.

They are so beautiful. I believe that it is rather needless to say that my wife is also Polish? What’s more, I fall in love with Polish traditions. I really love that they are so close with family’ members and they spend all of these amazing traditional holidays together. Certainly, sometimes I had also though days. E.g., when I couldn’t say anything in Polish and nobody else could speak English. But then I decided to sign for polish course warsaw and now I am fluent- more info: polish course warsaw! So as you can see – it was not always easy, but that was definitely worth it.
