grufferator 1 | - 17 Apr 2018 #1Hello all,I'm originally from Eastern Europe. I moved with my wife to Poland 2 years ago, then moved to UK this year. The main reason why we decided to move was that we felt like outsiders. We worked in a foreign company. All the communication was in English and we did not manage to learn Polish. Learning Polish fluently and integrating into the society felt like an impossible task. We did find jobs quite easy in UK and the salaries and much higher than in Poland, but the quality of life did not improve. We did manage to save some money in these 3 months, but that's only due to the fact that we live in a very small shared flat.Pros of living in UK:1. Everyone speaks English2. Easy to find a job3. Free healthcareCons of living in UK:1. Housing is expensive and the quality is crap2. Public transport is expensive3. Going out is expensive4. There's garbage everywhere - on the streets, in the parks, near the houses, on bus stops5. High crime rates6. General feeling of insecurity when walking in the evenings7. The green spaces are not integrated into the cities; there are block of flats or residential neighborhoods and there are parks with fences around8. There's a general feeling of insecurity about this country's futureDid anyone have the same experience? Did you move back to Poland or did you stay in UK? Why?
