This is my second contribution to The Daily in a series of articles about my experience and the pros and cons of living in Slovakia!

As with many ex-pats, first impressions of this country were ‘mixed’, to use the term loosely.

My friends and family who come to visit me in this strange ‘little big city’, always say the same thing without fail … ’ Wandering the cobbled streets of the Old Town in Bratislava and discovering the hidden alleyways and old churches, I sometimes feel as though I am on the set of a Hollywood movie! ’ I have had to become quite adept at dodging the enormous craters in the road and accepting most dishes I order will usually come with fried cheese…whether requested or not!

But if you are ever in need of a friendly face, there are plenty to be found!

The ex-pats I meet have all been so supportive and helpful, recognizing that as a newcomer here there are certain tips and techniques adapting to life here!

I discovered a great English book exchange, Next Apache, where you can while away the hours with a coffee or cold beer whilst surrounded by hundreds of books.Most introductions begin with the question, ‘why would you move to Slovakia? Many of the people I meet dream of leaving the country to move to a ‘real city’. Ah London, a city where ‘the streets are paved with gold! Yet here I was, leaving those glittering streets, for a life in strange and small Bratislava!However, I can most definitely say I never saw any golden streets in all my years as a Londoner, and give anyone a day traveling on the London Underground in Rush Hour and I am pretty certain they would also loose any idealistic ideas that it is a ‘city where dreams come true! Give me the electric tram and a Slovak bus any day! I compare the quality of life here with what I had in England and its incredible.Why leave ‘good old England’, where small pleasures such as tea bags, Sunday roast dinner and a morning paper through the door, were so easily attainable? In my 2.5 years living here as an English ex-pat, it is incredible how much my opinion has changed.I learnt quickly that the mentality here in Slovakia is one that can be misinterpreted.Slovakia has a total area of 18,928 square miles (49,035 square kilometers).
