Re: Retirement - as a New Beginning in Bulgaria


My Finn Grandmother on my Mother's side skipped Norsk - but she could swear in Swede, Russian, English and also carry on simple conversations.
also Canadian -heh, heh.

When we were in Finland - doing the tourist thing(1985) - English got you almost everywhere.

Interestingly - genetic research is rewriting migration patterns or at least generating new theories. The old model was based on languages.

Urban Finns seemed to get out to see the world as much as the Brits. We visited a 'very distant' relative of my father's side(Swedish speaking Finns) - house in the burbs(just like modern America *only maybe smaller) - he ticked off all the places in the world he'd been while working(a lot) and the daughter's first job on graduating in engineering(senior) would be for a British company in some yet to be specified country.

We felt absolutely provincial in comparason.

Yes, but consider the size of those countries. Maybe you could consider going from, say Virginia to Oregon as an equivalent.
