UK, Ireland / Help required with moving my art works and stuff from Scotland to Nowy Sacz [17]

Most of the items are packed in double wall cardboard boxes but certain items are not easy to pack. It will be roughly size of Luton van or a half truck full load.

I would help you man but wouldnt take the risk of the cargo contents.Why dont you use a transportation company?probably not much expensive.

Genealogy / Americans of Polish descent. How many of us are on Polish forums? [216]

The train system here is slowly being cut back and even the bus service between a lot of the communities whether small or large is not very conducive

Yup,same in the usa,the car trip that takes only 20 minutes by public transportation can take almost 16 hours(as the buses and connecting buses will make you wait for 6/7 hours).I agree usa is a nation for cars,electronics,branded clothes,music etc,but lately the food in the usa is getting compatable by that of europe for eg a loaf of bread in $3.99,other day I bought oranges for $1.25 each..either the food is getting expensive in the usa or the polish prices for food rising

Life / Is becoming a Polish national this easy? [16]

Yes, but one would need to have a Polish passport in order to know that

since when anyone needs a polish passport to be a polish citizen to begin with? national id is the only requirement to have.

Life / Is becoming a Polish national this easy? [16]

But I think citizenship doesn't have any serious advantages over long term residency

Polish citizenship with a foreign citizenship is infact is very problematic,you have to declare your income in both countries and answer to stupid questions of the tax departments and god forbis if your income declines in any of the country the both country tax departments also look into your underwear almost to get to the bottom (eg:one of my tenants left and was paying almost7k a month) but I had lot of explaining to do and numerous trips to there offices and paperwork with accountants in both countries.If given a chance all over I would stick with my old permit to settle in Poland.
