Well, once again, I've moved.
This time I landed in the City Of Brotherly Love, Philadelphia.
And the question I keep getting is, "Why would you return to the US now of all times?". That's a long answer.
Here's the short version...
I loved living in Ireland, but with Covid and the current economic situation, it was simply a matter of economic self preservation. With a depression lurking for the foreseeable future coinciding with my retirement planning, it just made more sense to come back, with the aim of saving money for a few years to be able to go back to Europe to retire. There's just not much opportunity in Ireland with all that's happening. Getting by is easy. Getting by and saving for retirement is a lot harder. It's easier for me to fight here on my own turf during these hard times. I know how to hustle for a buck here.
So now my plan is to work, save, repeat until I can comfortably return to Europe permanently. Altho next time maybe to a country with a bit better weather ;) But, I'll always have my EU passport to go back earlier if things get um... messy here.
To my friends here and abroad, I have new contact info. But if you'd like to contact me, you can always do it here
