Recently I got the chance to move from London to Barcelona, because my employer decided to open up an office here and my department wanted to expand as well. So I took the chance and moved over.
Obviously it isn’t that easy, there are many things you need to consider when you move. There is the moving itself, then all the legalities in the new country and also a new language.
As a European citizen it’s a bit easier for me to move but there are still many things you need to take care of, so you either need some help or figure everything out yourself.
To cut things sort, I did some stuff myself but also “hired” some help.
In the upcoming posts I will explain everything I experienced and give you many useful tips, so you might not even need to spend money on people to help you.
If you have any questions, just leave a comment and I will try to answer quickly.
