Moving to a new place is daunting etc, but really the best option is to pull your finger out, remind your fretful emotions just how many people would kill to be in your foreign shoes, and go exploring!
Relocating to Germany is going to give you wonderful access to, amongst other things, some of the best castles in the world. “Neuschwanstein” is arguably the most famous. King Ludwig II designed this flamboyant castle in 1869. In a lovely little fit of eccentricity he employed a theatre set designer instead of an architect. Upon moving to Germany, could you do the same?
The French Riviera (Cannes, Nice etc.) is astoundingly beautiful and relaxing. A trip over to the island of Corsica is primarily a popular French jaunt, reminiscent of the way we view somewhere like Cornwall – relaxing, inviting and stunning.
Moving to Holland is perhaps one of the lowest culture shock risks within Europe. Amongst the history of clogs, windmills and tulip fields, new Dutch culture is blossoming marvellously. Art and music festivals like “Festival aan de Werf” in Utrecht are amongst the most contemporary and unique in the world. The Dutch love festivals – flowers, marches, music, films, clothes, windmills, arts, bicycles – everything has its own celebratory event. Maybe your move to Holland will inspire them to throw a festival in your honour!
Cities like Brussels and Antwerp are as chic as they come. The architecture, culture and people are classic and inimitable thanks to the influences of Belgium’s neighbouring countries.
