My name is Marek. I’ve been in living in my homecity in Poland for 24 years. This year I also participated in Erasmus+ programme on Malta for one semester. I just wanted to try again something new and something abroad.
2. How was the change from living in Poland to relocating in Cyprus?
As I’ve been on Malta so it’s not too shocking for me. Obviously culture here is completely different than polish and if not for my Erasmus it would be hard to get used to it quickly but everyone here is friendly and nice so I don’t think that change of environment should be too tough.
My recommendations for someone looking to relocate to Cyprus is to look out at the cars! It is sometimes dangerous here when it comes to that. Fear not cockroaches and everything should be fine!
3. What kind of duties do you do at work on a daily basis?
I work as paralegal and I help preparing legal documents for the company’s clients.
4. What do you do in your free time around the island?
Visit new places, eat local cuisine, exercise.
5. What have you gained from this experience so far?
I gained a lot of knowledge about tax law of Cyprus.
Definitely. You guys were very helpful and very patient with me all the time. All the issues that arose were resolved quickly and painlessly.
Don’t think too much, be brave and just do it. Magical things are happening to the other side of your comfort zone.
