On Saturday, the 20th of December 2014, I ‘moved’ to Istanbul. On Friday, the 2nd of January 2015, I left Istanbul after only thirteen days. Things didn’t work out in Istanbul and as it is very hard to find get a residence permit without an employment contract I am back in Cologne, staying in one of my family’s flats while I am trying to figure out what comes next.
While I am in ‘limbo’ at the moment not knowing what comes next, unable to settle for a little bit in Cologne and not being able to start 2015 the way I wanted it to start, I am a lot happier. It really feels like the weight has come off my shoulders and I am not missing London at all at the moment. I was lonely, bored and stuck in the house most of the time with two little ones. It was hard and everyday I felt worse. One morning I woke up and I knew I had to leave London and see another part of the world for a while. I guess I am just one of those persons that needs to move around, see lots of different places, meeting new people and making lots of different experiences before finally settling down. Maybe I will never settle down, maybe I am the one constantly moving around.
I am heading off to Abu Dhabi in the morning, my flight is at 10:55am from Frankfurt and I fly with Etihad. I have an exciting job opportunity over there and I am able to tell you more about it next week when I am back on Monday. Yes, I only fly for two nights.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and thanks for reading this. I know I have been quiet for a while, but I just wasn’t up to sitting down and blogging. I have lots of started ‘projects’ but can’t bring myself to finish them right now. I hope I feel more up to blogging soon again, this is a start.
