Poland is something special

My partner is an English teacher. She learns something new every day. Both from me, and, from her students. I try to help her as much as I can. My daughter speaks mainly Polish and I do not try and force her to speak English.

Here, the family is everything. The love and care I have been shown is exceptional. When I go into hospital or see a specialist, nobody, asks me why I do not speak Polish, they are more interested in why I chose to live here. 14 years and I still find it difficult. Je suis Francaise, ich sprekcan kaan Deutch, mi habla Espanyol, but I cannot master the Polish language.

I live here and have everything that I need. The health care is out of this world, I would be dead if I was still in the UK. Yes, I have to give a Pesal number. but, I pay into the system and get what I deserve. I normally pay privately for Dentist, specialist etc, but, this is so cheap that it is not worth worrying about. I live in a large house that would have cost me at least 1 million in the UK. We live next to the lakes and forest, about 10km from the town. Big deal, there is no bus after 8.00.pm or on Sunday. There is no crime or drugs, we suffer that in silence. My friends and family that visit me from the UK, cannot believe, how beautiful or how cheap it is to live here.

We park, swim in the lakes and cycle through the forests at "no cost", tennis courts, ice skating, football are all included in the local taxes which are around 40 pounds a year.

I have an apartment in Barcelona and a house in the UK. This country has everything I need. Yes, if you do not have money, you may have problems, but, you only need a fraction of the amount that it would cost you to live in most European countries.

Poland, like the UK, still has its own currency which enables it to remain stable. It also, controls its borders which, unlike, most of Europe, is not conducive to allowing, undesirables to enter. If you want to subsidise the rest of the world then stay where you are, Europe, needs you.

Sorry but if you can't master Spanish or rather trying to fool everyone here that you can and hope nobody will notice then no wonder why you can't master Polish which is much harder language to learn.

It also, controls its borders which, unlike, most of Europe, is not conducive to allowing, undesirables to enter.

That's the best thing about my home country.

Had just spent 6 hours drinking your excellent Polish piwo and watching, 3 La Liga, matches and reflecting on why I feel so privileged to live here. Wulkan, you can spend you time mocking the foreigners that live here,but, at least appreciate the ones that actually, stick up for and like your country. Special offer at Lidl, 16 bottles of Harnas for 2.20 a bottle and I took advantage. You have my sincerest apologies for any mistakes I made.i can only hope to achieve the sublime infallibility that exits in your life. Until then, via con Dios, my friend.

Woollens just annoyed that he's working the night shift again, whilst you're over in Poland enjoying the stuff he craves.

No it doesn't, Poland is in the Schengen Zone

That is not true. Poland is in the Schengen zone and does not enforce internal border controls, only external ones (with Russia, Belarus and Ukraine).
