Thanks for the encouragement everyone. It's good to know people who like the blog are reading it. When I moved to Athens I had no reference, no one to tell me what moving to another country for the reasons I did was like.

If my blog has eased even a little bit of your anxiety, then it's achieved its aim :)



I started reading your blog a couple of months ago...

I started reading your blog a couple of months ago, in the midst of a very difficult period in a long-distance relationship (at the time between Boston and Istanbul), and I just wanted to let you know how comforting it was to read your experiences and how much I admire you for 'taking the plunge' to move to a new country for the man you love.

At that time I was wondering if I would ever have it in me to move to a strange city in a country whose language is not even related to my own, or if when push came to shove I'd sacrifice a relationship with someone who could be (and is, I now think) the love of my life to stay in my own.

Anyway I now know from experience what a difficult decision that is to face, and it's been quite helpful to read the experiences of another person in a similar situation. Quite frankly, anyone who hasn't faced the travails of trying to communicate with prospective in-laws in broken sentences and sign-language (or, horror of horrors, cook in the presence of a prospective Mediterranean mother-in-law) really shouldn't judge what 'hard' is. ;)

Anyway, more power to you and best of luck in Athens! If I were there I'd really like to meet up sometime over a frappe or two to swap stories :)

Keep on blogging, bollybutton.

Did someone say that "people who move to another country to be with the one they love are cowards"?

It takes a lot of guts to make such a move.

Anyway, glad to have you here.
