/ Moved back from Canada to Poland:). Here are the reasons why.
for now teaching English - what else can I do here. I also was working in that field before I left, so it is quite easy and I like that job most of the time.
So you were a teacher in canada? Good lord i can't believe you left such a good job. Some of my friends in canada had a hell of a time trying to get into teaching (lack of jobs for teachers) but it was worth it as the benefits are amazing!
what do you you do here if you don't mind me asking.
I'm a day trader (stock market). I came here because of family ties and all i need for my job is a laptop and the internet:)
I also taught english for a bit but had to leave it due to boredom. I've been talking to some friends/family here about starting some kind of business.
I like the small shops, the transit system - although it could be better then it is at the moment, the fact that I live down town- yet, it is still quiet where I live, I also like the huge park next to my building. The fact that I don't have to travel miles to do my shopping.
I agree. The transit system is amazing! I thought about buying myself a car but there is no need (nowhere to park, poor roads, expensive gas). I get around via bus/tram and illegal taxis. Sometimes i like to rent a cheap car for weekend getaways. I also live downtown which would not have been financially feasible back in north america.
One thing i miss is being able to have a nice house, with a big lawn in the suburbs. Houses here are pricey and i just don't know how long i'll stay here. Although suburbs are becoming more popular here, they're just not the same as back home. Everything here is messy, disorganised and compact.
Also, little corner stores in poland are a great source for groceries, but supermarkets on the other hand are not very impressive.
