You know i always recommend Slovakia, for down-to-earth, better looking and more family oriented women. But since joining the European union and opening up to the world, Slovakia has had a constant increase in prices, I think they're delusional.
Last time i was there was four years ago, and at the pace things are changing everywhere today, I wouldn't be surprised if they're getting an attitude with the new money, like the stupid Koreans. And some slovak girl's dream is to go to England or New York to live the 'big city dream' you know how they turn after that...
But having said all that, i still think visiting the small towns would be really really worth it.
Do you have any concrete plans? so many posters here dwelling on theory and asking the same questions over and over..
1)Too much of one thing defeats the purpose.
2)Everybody is full of it. What's your hypocrisy?
Yeah, I've got some concrete plans- just not a specific direction (ex: I'm trying to head to the Czech Republic, or possibly Slovakia, but I don't know how I'll be getting there). I don't have the exact details handled & that's what I'm trying to find out more about.
I figure I'll have some money to work with & that I'll be able to live somewhat cheaply- but I don't know how to do Czech banking (Do I just get money from an ATM?, Do I bring cash & have it exchanged at a bank?, Do I transfer money from my bank to one in Czechia? etc...). Actually, I don't know the answers to any of those & don't figure it's prudent to travel to another country with thousands of dollars in a duffel bag.
I want to do some vacation, some "scouting," and maybe get things started as far as living there goes (language school, maybe a student visa from that, maybe a work visa after I get the language down & some good employment options, from there I could probably get a residency permit or my Italian citizenship from heritage will go through & I'll be able to live/work/retire in all sorts of countries with no visa- unless they're not in the EU or don't have that kind of agreement anymore at that point). I don't really know where to find that sort of stuff & figured I could ask the consulate about some of it (since there was an ad for a language school that you can stay at on their site, I just can't find it again).
I just figure I'll try to keep the traveling cheap & not go to too many expensive restaurants until I get set up. Maybe I should invest in a bicycle? I know I can cook for myself & can read price tags, what I don't know is how to go about getting an apartment over there. I figured I could ask as I go along, but that could somewhat require knowing the language & I've found it hard to self-teach over here. Might be easier in a country where they learn languages a bit more frequently- different resources, people being accustomed to talking to someone that doesn't really get the language too well, etc... .
