hotrock68, I moved here seven years ago and I would say it's the best move that I ever made.
It would be of great benefit if you started learning some Polish, or the language of the country you eventually decide to settle in.
I would totally agree with this, as you will need this to work.
You skills as a stone mason are becoming more and more popular as I know of many projects in the area that I live; the south-east of Poland, Pulway, near Lublin, where they have a lot of money from the European Union to repair a lot of the listed buildings that have fallen into disrepair.
This is to encourage tourism to the area, and some form of Polish language is a must in this line of work, unless you can find a trustworthy worker to translate.
This an example of the sort of building they are doing at the moment, and it is a Castle in Janowiec, where I hope you can see that over the years they have tried to repair it but they have used house bricks and all types blocks that looks awful.
Here is a better link to it
