I have been in your shoes
Living abroad is not always easy, adjusting to a new culture takes time, and once the novelty wears off, you may feel like going back home to your family and friends. The initial excitement can turn into frustration coping with your new reality. However, since the glass is neither full nor empty, it is up to you to make the most of it while living abroad. Bear in mind, that one day you may return to your country, and then, you can either go home full of experiences or with an empty bag of regrets.
I have been in your shoes. For six years, I lived, studied and worked in London. When I came back to Barcelona, with my Scottish husband, I felt privileged to have seen the world through another window. It was not always easy though.
I will always remember when I first landed in London. A friend and I, like all new comers, went to Covent Garden to stroll around. There, we met a lovely old lady who kindly talked to us. According to her, the first 6 months living abroad were going to be the hardest. My friend and I were shocked, 6 months seemed an eternity then. Now I know the lovely old lady was a wise lovely old lady. Time is the essence when it comes to settling in a new country. As for the 6 months don’t worry about it too much. To be perfectly honest, I could not tell how long it took me to feel part of my new world, but the journey was definitely worth it!
My work is the result of my passion for languages and my desire to help those who are now in my old shoes. I’d love to hear your story and help you make your experience in Barcelona a happy and rich one.
