Ready for Europe.
It's been more than three years since I last visited the European Union. I wrote a rather verbose article about my preparation for that Eurotrip in late 2012, and why you should never get your Schengen visa with the Italians. That was fun, sort of romantic, forty-five days back then.
This time, though, I'm flying out for a different reason; I'm moving to Amsterdam as a highly skilled migrant and (hopefully) integrate with the Dutch way of life. Can't wait, really, for becoming a European resident, and of course travelling around the Schengen area.
And oh, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland granted my wishes of long-term validity visit visa. It won't be my first time with the Brits, but I'm still excited as hell to visit London. Just short of an Irish visa, I should be able to cover all of the European Union, the European Economic Area, and good old' Switzerland too.
I will definitely write up more about Europe soon! Ciao, for now.
