  • Traveling means living much more interestingly if you follow impulses that arise suddenly. © Bill Bryson
  • In twenty years, you will no longer regret what you did, but what you did not do. So throw knots, swim out of the quiet harbors. Catch the wind in your sails. Explore. Dream it. Open up. © Mark Twain
  • A wonderful feeling is to board a long distance train without luggage. As if, having left the house for a walk, you suddenly find yourself in a curved space-time - and you find yourself in the cockpit of a diving bomber. And there is nothing more. No visits to the dentist, scheduled for a week in the calendar. No problems piled up on the table awaiting your arrival. Not all of these "public relations" from which you risk not getting out until the end of life. Not a fake friendliness in the face to gain the trust of others ... all of this for some time I just send to hell. Only these old tennis shoes with worn soles remain. Only they - and nothing more. Oh, they are firmly attached to the legs - scraps of obscure memories from another space-time. Well, yes it is not scary. Such memories are easily banished by a couple of cans of beer and a ham sandwich. © Haruki Murakami

  • Whatever You desire for Yourself, give it to another ... If you wish to be happy, make another happy. If you want to be lucky, help others succeed. If you wish to receive more Love in your Life, make it so that the other has more. Do it sincerely - not because you are looking for personal gain, but because you really want the other person to have it all - and all that you have given will come to You. Why is that? How it works? The act of giving itself makes You feel that You have, that You have something to give. Since You cannot give what You do not have, Your mind comes to a new conclusion, a New Thought about You, namely: You have something, otherwise you could not give it. This New Thought becomes a part of Your Life Experience. You start to be like that. And once you start “to be”, you power the most powerful machine of creation in the Universe - Your Divine Self. © Neil Donald Walsh

I hope you do things that scare you. I hope you have feelings that you have never experienced before. I hope you meet people with different points of view. I hope you live the life you deserve. If not, I hope you have the courage to start over.

If you do not have a dream, it means that you work for someone else. Do you want this? The choice is yours. You set yourself a bar of your risk. You put the limits of your ceiling, above which you can’t jump. You choose where you develop and what to delve into. What is important and what is not worthy of your attention. You choose how to think about people or not think about them at all. Every day is a choice. And he is behind you.

  • Beat yourself. It is better to defeat yourself than to win thousands of battles. Then the victory is yours. Neither angels, nor demons, nor heaven, nor hell can take it away from you.

The thought comes when she pleases. To which I reply: you cannot forbid the bird to fly over you, but undoubtedly, you can prevent it from laying a nest on your head. ” © Buddha Gautama

  • The window of the car represents the main entertainment for the traveler. In it, as in a kaleidoscope, stations, villages, forests flash, bridges fly under a metal whistle of riveted beams, fields open, changing their color from white to black and from green to yellow.

In motion, everything seems so cute and a little toyy, as if unreal. Looking out the window, the passenger becomes a little child, with surprise discovering for himself how huge the world is, how much space and air there is in him, and not just the usual streets and houses.

There is a secret charm in the carriage window, when you look at the lullaby of the wheels and look at nothing. Pictures fly by, as if smeared with a brush, and from this measured movement and constant change of impressions you immerse yourself in a light slumber in reality, and thoughts automatically come to mind and just as easily disappear.

Sometimes you want to go nowhere. Just go and listen to your favorite music, look at the flickering lights, look at all the city bustle. Forget about all the problems and just enjoy.

  • I decided to go on a trip, to the present, a great trip, which everyone dreams of, probably, but never has time to decide.

  • You know, when I woke up this morning and looked back at my life, I thought: “Should I be afraid of taking risks and doing what I really want to do without paying attention to someone else’s opinion and criticism? Ignoring the imaginary fears that my “smart mind” draws, alienating me from the realization of my desires? ”. Death happens to a hundred people out of a hundred, not to ninety-nine, but to a hundred people. Is it worth it to worry if a moment comes when she knocks on me and says: “Well, it's time!”? I think this is most terrible when she knocks on me, and I, looking back at my life, will very much regret that I had the opportunity, but I did not dare. That I could go to the girl and meet, but was afraid that she would send me. What I did not have time to tell my parents how much I love them and do not want them to swear. That I did not quit my boring and uninteresting work and did not dare to open my own business. I regret that I did not travel much and did not care about my health. Etc. Now, when I have any doubts, I ask myself one question: “What am I afraid of?” And there is no more doubt. © Alexey Demidov

What really happens?

But in fact, if a person decided on such an important step and still bought a one-way ticket, then, more often than not, he goes through several standard stages of adaptation, which are almost impossible to avoid. Usually, mental and physical adaptation to life in a foreign country flows through four main points, the severity and degree of tolerance of which also depends on many factors.

First stage. "Fun"

This stage begins from the moment the aircraft landed in the country you dreamed of half your life. You feel that something has finally happened to you, you have achieved what you wanted, coming to a new country, where everything is new and fascinatingly adds a good mood, a person is in a state of euphoria and happiness. That's just a month or two passes, if not earlier, and the person smoothly moves to the second step.

The second step. "Fear"

And this is where the fun begins. A person begins to realize that it is good to live where you understand, at least, what people are talking about around you, and abroad everything is completely different. And all the myths that after six months of life a person is already so merged that he begins to speak the local language freely, are not at all confirmed.

Yes, there is some truth, one out of ten starts to speak freely, and the rest remain at the stage of “Hello, my name is Vanya” and “How to go to some street”. All popular free courses for immigrants, which are so vividly told, do little to help, because the teachers lack any motivation.

All this is beginning to affect futile job searches, because employers are in no hurry to take into their ranks tongue-tied comrades. In addition to all this, a person begins to realize that all those, at first glance, wonderful trifles and amenities, which very often abroad, are beginning to annoy, the foundations of life seem irrational and inadequate.

Any area of ​​life becomes inexplicable, and people who initially seemed so friendly and kind, began to resemble artificial dolls, which, in fact, absolutely do not care what happens to you. Immediately I remember the home and friends who stayed there, all the bad things are forgotten, but only the good is remembered, the person begins to grieve madly. And the question of where it is better to live, abroad or in your own country, seems silly. After all, the answer is simple - visiting is good, but at home is better!

Step Three. "Wrestling"

And here everything is aggravated. A person is already so homesick that he starts planning a return journey. However, he decides to give himself one last chance and enters the fight. It is at this stage that many expatriates break down and leave everything that they have gone for so long.

But those who decide to try, begin to converge with the people around them, and even, over time, make friends. The person adapts and understands that he begins to like. Many things have ceased to annoy, and culture has become clearer, and many stupid, at first glance, things have become explainable and important.

And here you understand that you have entered the last, fourth stage of “survival” in a foreign country - this is the final straight, the path to happiness and tranquility.

Difficulties and problems of immigrants in a foreign country

However, the stages that we have listed above are only a common core, which each has its own difficulties. Someone easier, especially young people and children, and someone can be very hard, this applies to older people and people in age. By the way, the presence of a decent education plays an important role.

  • The language barrier. And, in order not to be told, mastering the language, it turns out, is not so easy, especially at such a level as to study and find work abroad. Many are faced with the fact that having moved to another country, they have not been able to fully express their thoughts for a long time, as well as to understand what the local residents are talking about.
  • Bureaucratic complexity. It will take a lot of time to deal with all the papers and documents that need to be drawn up, filled out and paid in time. And a visa and a residence permit are just the beginning, followed by various types of registration, permits, and so on and so forth.
  • Loneliness. It is only at first glance it seems that the search for new contacts and friends is an everyday matter, they say, it will accompany your rationale in a new country anyway. Over time, a person begins to realize that it is difficult to find a good friend, and if a language barrier is also reported here, then, altogether, a feeling of helplessness appears.

One conclusion can be made: one can live abroad, but it is necessary to make a huge amount of effort, become a purposeful person, do not be lazy and actively learn a language, because it can be a great barrier to normal life abroad in all its aspects and manifestations.

1. You are constantly learning a new language. And forget the old one.

I am not an expert in how human brains work, but something tells me that if you stop speaking your native language, you will forget it sooner or later. At first, you will begin to increasingly more and better understand what you are talking about on the streets of new compatriots. Then you will rejoice at how quickly they learned a foreign language. It will take another couple of months, and you will begin to think on it! Hence, the direct dear to oblivion in relation to Russian.

You will not forget to forget, when you get back to the Russian-speaking environment, you will again speak perfectly well in your own, but without constant support of the environment, you will become very stupid to make mistakes, say wild things like “wear pants” or “take the bus” (not by storm, and sit on it in the sense of), and constantly stumble:

- He did. How is it in Russian? Radio? No, not the radio.

- You yourself are television! BUT! X-ray!

2. A suitcase will become not just a convenient bag for things.

I thought that after I moved, my suitcases with things collected for the journey would be gathering dust on the far shelf. I even thought: "What will I do with all these suitcases when I get settled?". But I continue to use them even after years of life in exile.

The fact is that emigration as if freed me. I began to travel more and more. And get pleasure from it. I think with the majority of those of you who decide to change their place of residence, the same thing will happen: once you get out of the cage, you want to continue doing it again and again. And yes, I'm not sure that I will live the rest of my days in Brazil, where I live today.

3. This is not a trip. This is your Life!

You can live abroad for five years, then come home to visit relatives, and your friends, meeting you at the pub, will ask: "Well, how is your trip?". Sometimes I want to shout: "I am not on a trip! I live there!". But they still will not understand.

Therefore, I always answer this question on this polite pattern: “So much has happened in these three years. We can have lunch together sometime, and I will tell you my most vivid impressions!”.

5. The line between "normal" and "strange" will henceforth be a bit blurred forever.

Despite the fact that many believe that the world today is one global McDonalds, it is not. And each culture, even the neighboring ones, may have its own ideas about what is acceptable and what is not.

Somewhere is normal when young people kiss on the street, somewhere - no. Somewhere the inhabitants of the street are calm towards marijuana smoking, somewhere they are not.

I left America at 23 years old. Then I thought wrong when someone on the street was picking his nose. At the same time, I myself always used a toothpick after dinner. Now imagine that, where I am today, everything is exactly the opposite. I can calmly clean my nose here in a public place. But I was not used to the fact that the public use of chopsticks for brushing teeth is not normal.

But what is really great is that understanding this difference makes you a much freer and more tolerant person.

6. Time is measured differently in different countries.

In America, you can not invite anyone to the cafe right today. There, people live by the calendar. And wildly rage every time they have to wait for someone longer than five minutes.

Now imagine that where I am now, being late even by 30 minutes is normal. And at first it didn’t make me happy at all: I got into glue, everything happens in slow motion, you don’t have time to do anything.

But then you get used and adapt. Although you continue to marvel at how some people are fixated on time, while others don’t think about it at all.

7. The word “routine” will disappear from your vocabulary.

Regardless of whether your life will develop in a new place as you planned, or not, you will never be bored and "ordinary" there. A miracle will happen every day.

Once I dedicated a WHOLE DAY to paying just two utility bills. Now I'm not sure that tomorrow I will have electricity and water. It is so unpredictable. I just always have a "backup plan" - in case the working day will be ruined by the irresponsibility of local electricians.

In general, unexpected things abroad with you in any case will happen ten times more often than at home.

8. You will lose everything, but it won't matter much.

In fact, people are often afraid to move somewhere, because “they will be nobody there” or because they are afraid of losing their usual job and their usual social circle.

I will say more. When you move, you will lose everything (except for the macbook and clothes) that you had. Habitual routes for walking. Family gatherings. Favorite shops. Favorite products (if it is not Coca-Cola). And also smells, colors, weather and tastes.

On the other hand, it will not bother you. You will be able at least for a while (often - a couple of years) not to think about your social status or what you are used to at home. The new world will swallow you up completely. And you will understand that material success is not all.

Before you go to live in another country, you will not even think that everything you want to take with you fits in a couple of suitcases. You do not even remember half of the things that seemed to be very important.

10. Everything will be different.

At first you will often feel humiliated. We'll have to ask (often unfamiliar) people for help in the most simple situations. Every day everything will seem so complicated and unusual that sometimes it will even be scary.

But it will take a couple of months, and you get comfortable. And your heart will overwhelm the feeling that you are capable of something much more than you thought.

This summer I didn’t go anywhere, so I want to at least listen to stories about overseas life.

- August 16, 2013, 15:55

I have lived in many places, both in Asia and in Europe, at the moment in Australia. Сначала поехала учиться, потом работу нашла, потом другую. Так и мотаюсь.
Такого, чтобы была какая-то страна, где не жизнь, а райские кущи - нет такого, конечно. Но знаете, если нет каких-то черезвычайных ситуаций типа там гражданской войны или безумного диктатора у власти, или ужасного криминала, то в принципе в любой стране можно нормально счастливо жить. Везде можно найти друзей, везде есть отзывчивые люди, везде есть способы решить бытовые и медицинские проблемы.
В идеале, если бы платили хорошие зарплаты по моей специальности, я бы в Китае жила с удовольствием. Я в жизни больше всего люблю свою работу и хорошо пожрать, поэтому мне китайская ментальность подходит. И вообще китайцы мне нравятся - чуваки без заморочек типа религии, прав животных и прочей куеты.

I have lived in many places, both in Asia and in Europe, at the moment in Australia. First I went to study, then I found work, then another. So I shake.

There is no such country, where there is no life, but paradise, there is no such thing, of course. But you know, if there are no emergency situations such as there is a civil war or an insane dictator in power, or a terrible crime, then in principle, in any country you can live a normal, happy life. Everywhere you can find friends, everywhere there are responsive people, everywhere there are ways to solve household and medical problems.

Ideally, if they paid good salaries in my specialty, I would have enjoyed living in China. I love my job most of all in life and eat well, so the Chinese mentality is right for me. And in general, I like the Chinese - dudes without problems like religion, animal rights and other coquettes.

I love Spain, but. where I was not and did not work, I was best in England. If Spain had the same salary as in England, it would live only in Spain, it suits me very much and the climate and the food and the food and lifestyle of the local population are very appealing :))

Extremely controversial statement. Study and work visas are many restrictions, and there are no guarantees that you will be able to stay. As a result, many still have to arrange a marriage.

In Germany for many years. In my opinion, life is better than in Russia, but there are other opinions - a girl friend recently returned to Moscow, she does not like the mentality, you see. But the Russian mentality is already alien to me, I don’t watch Russian channels, but sometimes I’m sitting in a humane in order to feel that the problems here are just problems compared to what is in my homeland.

- August 17, 2013, 07:12

A cloud in a skirt, you are greatly mistaken. Far from everywhere, marriage is the guarantor of a visa. Regarding the limitations of a study and work visa, this is how you will study and work. It depends on the prestige of the company, experience and similar factors. "Arrange" marriage to resolve the issue in order to stay - the fate of the narrow-minded.

I am not mistaken; I write what I see in the immigrant environment in the USA. I admit that in some countries differently. And in the US, marriage and watered. shelter - the easiest and surest way to permanent residence. Work - much longer, more expensive, more difficult, and many employers are scolding. And studying is not the way to permanent residence, it is only time to find work.

The United States is not the whole world, and by the way is not a panacea at all. There are countries where at times more difficult to linger. Study is the first step, plus the experience of being in the country, then work and there and close to the type of residence. This is the most worthy way, you are just right that it is not the easiest. And the postmen as they were. That is why many countries are introducing a law on the revocation of a residence permit upon divorce or disclosure of a fake marriage.

I personally worked 7 months after arriving in the country and the wedding. By the way, I practically did nothing at home with my English (1st husband) - he cooked great, we spent little time at home as both worked a lot and life was at a minimum (he was completely responsible for washing and disassembling the dishwasher, I did the cleaning once a week) . The second husband - Russian is much more spoiled in terms of life.

For what I do not like life in the UK - this is a system of medical services. It is for the system that is very difficult to get around. Doctors, like everywhere else, are different, but the system does not allow them to send the patient to a specialist if there are any suspicions, only when everything is already completely bad and the symptoms are not killed by ordinary antibiotics, etc. - now I’m spending my vacation in Russia at the hospital bed - 3b5 years ago with bilateral sinusitis (which I was treated with antibiotics for a year in England without even taking an elementary picture) and now with a cyst in my nose, although I even brought my therapist half a year my pictures from Russia saying that I need to see a specialist - he prescribed me sleep for nose t allergies. This is taking into account that I have private medical insurance, but without the direction of the therapist, it cannot be used, but he refused.

This is generally such a feature of Western medicine - to begin treatment only when the patient is already dying. What ultimately takes a hundred times more money than on preventive measures. Who needs this, especially in the case of the NHS - is not very clear at all.

IMHO, and right. Permanent residence through marriage is for family reunification, and if there is no family, then why reunite? A fictitious marriage, as far as I know, is practically everywhere - an article, and not just a cancellation.

I cannot recommend any country because the whole world has not traveled, and I only had to emigrate 2 times. History, Alik, I have a very long, but I think the same as everyone else on this forum. For the first time, I emigrated to Israel because my grandmother, according to my father, is Jewish. The second time, I emigrated to Canada because I am Ukrainian by nationality, and those in Israel, to put it mildly, are not very favored, because terrorist acts do not stop in Israel, because there were not big monetary savings, the initial knowledge of French language and because my dad, as a professional specialist, was needed by Canada. I live here is not bad. I got a higher education here, I worked and got married 1 year ago.

Here everything depends on the husband. If the husband is a good person, then living with him will be good, and if the husband is a bad person, then accordingly living with him will be bad. And when they study, many come only for a while to unlearn and go home.

[quote = "Audrey"] There are countries where it is much harder to stay. Study is the first step, plus the experience of being in the country, then work and there and close to the type of residence. This is the most worthy way, you are just right that it is not the easiest. quote]
What countries are you writing about? Specify. These are countries where very few people want to study and therefore places in universities are free? Is there a job there also because there are not enough specialists? Then imagine what the economic situation and what the standard of living in these countries, if the locals do not even want to learn and work. Would you like to live in such countries? For example, my dad, he emigrated to Canada as a specialist, but we also had many other reasons for emigration, such as refugee because of martial law and refugee due to national persecution, and then there was also an initial French language and small cash savings for the first time. Of course, you can come to Canada as a specialist, but you can imagine what level you should be a specialist? It is necessary that Canada needs you and that throughout Canada there is no specialist equal to you. But there is no other way, because here many Canadians graduate from universities and take great pleasure in their specialties. It is much easier for their employers to hire a local Canadian than to hire a citizen of a foreign country, with whom they still need to tinker and help them get Canadian citizenship.

refugee due to national persecution.

Circus.
First, you voluntarily enter Israel!
And then because of the persecution. (who pursued you there, if you were allowed to come and nobody pulled you there on the lasso, and there were always attacks there, you knew about them when you went there) for some reason do not come back to Ukraine but ask for asylum in Canada ?: )))
I have many friends who work and live in Canada, America, Australia, Europe, went there as scientists, various specialists, simply finding work from Russia there.
And your dad, so to speak, a “specialist”, for some reason it was necessary to seek asylum in Canada from Israel.
I would be an expert, so I would find work in Ukraine or any other country from Ukraine.
Tricky you are.
They used Israel and are still unhappy with it.
I am Russian if that, but for Israel, that's because of people like you, it's a shame.
