You may want to contact the folks who write this blog david-polanddavid.blogspot.com
They are a retired couple who have made the move to Poland and probably know a lot about sorting out the details with taxes and health care.

Good luck!

while you there, go ahead and contact Wroclaw Boy, he's a very successful British real estate agent living in Poland. He may be a landlord as well. but I'm not sure about that.

we all know that “felt that I belong in Poland” is bunch of crap.

Does it really booste your ego to continusly put Poland down?

You harp on about the hardships you endured in Poland and how you are a self made man in America, a true blue, white and red.

But that's all bullcrap, you just try to justify your decision to leave Poland by putting Poland down all the time that's why you're on these forums.

Hope it makes you feel the big man.

Of course it does.

He needs to feel that he's not just another failure who works his 40 hours a week in the local "Polski Sklep" and who spends his entire existence online, berating others to compensate for himself.

I'm a guy, you're a guy and we all know that "felt that I belong in Poland" is bunch of crap.

Sometimes it's true. Over the years countless people have come to Poland and something - not the women, nor the money and certainly not the food - have made them stay.

The place you 'belong' might not be where you were born or where your ancestors were born. But if you find that place, you know you belong there.

Sometimes i just speak what's on my mind. I didn't mean to sound like I'm putting down Poland, it's the country of my ancestors and i understand that some people still have to live there. Please accept my apologies sean.

It really is how it sounds.

some people still have to live there.

Actually people here can leave any time they wish, which means the choose to be here.

Please accept my apologies sean.

Ah here, I don't want an apology, it's just my opinion.

You could talk about some of the positive things about Poland from time to time, you know for some sort of balance.

On topic: I think he's is going to be ok in Poland, if i was divorced i would probably do the same. Polish overall are very good people.

So? What were your impressions? Do you have a Polish passport?

I was completely impressed by the beauty and history. I found people VERY respectful and polite ( except for a few queue jumpers). I experienced Polish beaurocracy first hand and it was better than I had expected. Finding 80 year old documents was not difficult and the people were very understanding. I did notice a lack of "customer service" but it was not as bad as I had assumed. I have been to the Embassy in NY and in Warsaw. I do not have a Polish passport yet , but have been told that I am a citizen per my documents and a passport would not be a problem.

I am currently looking and weighing my options, financially as well as medically. I have a home that I can afford near Warsaw and the people will let me know if they are going to sell it before I am prepared to move.

If all works out I hope to live out my life in Poland!

Czesc !

100% true. He made on me the same impression. What is more he is not a self-made man as he's trying to sell to us. If he has a family in the USA no wonder he could make his life there. I wish I had some relatives there too!

The place you 'belong' might not be where you were born or where your ancestors were born. But if you find that place, you know you belong there.

How about you? Do you fell that you belong to Poland?

I could live there, if not for family. Poland is like the USA was in the past, several years ago. I have been there a few times, and each time, I love it more. Long live Poland, and her great people.

Canada dude - You seem to not really like poland. You also keep putting it down. How about canada really? I dont think he wants any ham. Anyways Ive been to warsaw and I like it there Im 25% polish and to be honest Im proud to be the polish that I am. Im straight out of poland bloodline though my mother is from Kielce. I visit my family every year in fact Im going in two months and I love it there. Anyways just leave the dude alone and stop with the negative posts. If he wants to move to Poland dont give him such a hard time. Buddy all I got to say is go for it move there its nice maybe a company will need an american lawyer. If she wants to go back I suggest you go there to if she has family there it would be nice for the kid but also you have family here. But if you truly dont want to go back to Poland stand your ground.

Many people have moved back to Poland or went to other parts of Europe. I personalty know half a dozen people who went back and are happy there. The America we used to know the land of milk and honey is no more. Prices are high, wages the same as 10 years ago, good jobs are scarce. You can see the neighborhoods changing, getting dirtier, overrun by 'trash'.

Just scanning through and 'meeting' posters here. I wish you well in whatever you decide. After two decades of hard looking, I am finally making headway on finding my grandparent's families and extended family in Krasnopol and Kalisz. If I had the means/time - I would love to come to Poland for a few years but my age and lack of funds will never allow it. I don't feel that any time spent travelling or living in another country is ever a waste, though. I was fortunate enough to live many years in Italy as a child - learning about others, especially those with whom you share 'roots' can be difficult, yes - even exceedingly so - but always builds character and appreciation for other customs/ways. As for being 'accepted as a pole' - let me share this - I am from the USA - I was born a 'southerner' to a Polish father and American mother - even 'here' there will always be people who treat others as 'outsiders'. I identify as a "Southerner" here and was raised "Southern" but there have been family on my mother's side, who never accepted my father's family "Ooo- they are 'foreigners' - yuck! dirty-sloppy-stupid - and etc" This "Us versus Them" attitude is not something only found in certain places - it is found everywhere, in every country under the sun. Go where you go with good intent and good heart - you WILL meet those whom you may call 'family' everywhere you go. The Polish people I've been fortunate enough to know in my family have taught me this - 'our' Polish family people here and back in Poland/Lithuania - they work HARD, they play HARD, they love Hard - they are 'all or nothing' people - huge hearts and spirits - when I say "Hard" - I mean with all the heart and soul. You will find people to accept you - and as we say here, it is simply a case of "Mind over Matter" - if you don't mind, 'they' (those who won't/don't accept you) should not matter. LOL. Bona Fortuna!

That depends. If you're a Jewish Pole, make aliyah instead.

I am English living here in the Podkarpacie region and I can,t help on many things but when my wife and I came to live here we were the same as you will be with our monies coming into our Polish bank from UK government ex employers etc etc......the bank were very helpful and asked us where we would like to declare that our money is taxed? (they politely informed us that it is cheaper to have it taxed in UK) we signed the declaration forms and saved ourselves from double taxation. I hope you will be able to do the same. I noticed an earlier poster said something about age,retirement and still teaching. I,m not sure it has any bearing but might be helpful. I know you are older than I am but one thing.....I,ve always had trouble getting people here in Poland to understand that I am 56 and have been retired since I was 49.......they have no concept of early retirement...indeed I have been drawing one 'War Pension' since I was 30...if only it had been enough £££ I would have retired then. My Dentist retired at 43!!!! (private pension...no such thing hereabouts)......good luck hope it all goes well for you. Ps...paying doctors cash under the table....it still goes on shhhhhhh!!!

I can honestly say that nothing on Gods Earth would make me chose Poland to live in.

Why on Gods earth are you hanging around in a Polish forum then? What graveyard did you visit, Auschwitz? You make some crazy comments that are so stereotyped that I can't imagine where you're actually from or if indeed you actually ever lived here.

I personally love Poland and I've been here for 8 years. I have traveled the world and consider Poland one of the nicest and most welcoming countries I have ever lived in.

Many people have moved back to Poland or went to other parts of Europe.

Spot on post. IMO, if you aren't wealthy or non-white then Europe has the higher standard of living for you.

Especially if you have or plan on having children on the way, USA is a rotting society centered around manipulating people. You will fight an uphill battle raising a child being told by everyone around them that selfish individualism is the way to happiness. If you treasure more to life and want to have grand children down the line that you are proud of....you know where to go. And let's be honest, if things don't work out then there will be a lonely home in a gated community in the USA waiting for your return.

moved from

3 weeks is still longer than you will ever spend there welfare queen!

You don't have to explain any of that.

I was born there. I speak Polish. I am supposed to be emotionally attached. And spent two weeks in 2017 and three days on my next and last trip because I couldn't take it any longer when I realized that I was dealing with windup morons.

I will take cruizing the US every day.

Youre not the first person to tell me this. Ive asked a lot of Poles in Chicago if they ever plan on moving back to Poland. The vast majority say no, some say hell no, and a few ppl even gave me a dirty look and seemed pissed off. Chalk that one up as F-No. Things might be changing as Biden destroys the country though. I should start the survey back up...

@Joker.most of those Poles came to the States in late 70s/early80s or before.I think that then times were different.I observed that those people have inferiority complex to go back to Poland.Most lived there life in America working had finally bought a paid off house.a used luxury car etc etc,where as in Poland younger Poles are doing the same,Before the PolAms would go to Poland and brag about America and there lifestyles showing off the USD,They couldnt do that here and Poles in Poland were impressed and now they know better.Face it most poles came to the west lived like Mexicans(4 in a room,saving every cent),they dont do that in Poland and now still live the same standard of life or even better.
