"Emigration: reasons & experience"

Germany
April 12, 2010 4:16am CST
Since generations, hundreds of people emigrate from home to another village, country or continent. Some people decide on their own to move to another place, others are obliged to change live. Emigrations means to know new places, new people, sometimes you have to learn another language or to adapt to a quiet different culture and way of live. The reasons for the emigrations might be very different: personal, familiar, political or labour. Are you one of those who emigrated? What was your experience? Do you believe that the "emigration" open minds? Or is it more a social problem?

I didn't really emigrate as such. I went searching for work or business opportunities. I haven't gone back "home" in twenty five years. On my travels around the world, I got married and had a daughter. I look upon it as a 25 year holiday. It does open minds but also teaches you to be open minded. It can also be a lonely existence! Highly recommended for social misfits.

You are right when you say that it teaches you to be open minded and I also agree with you that it can also be a lonely existence. Thank you for your response!
