Settling in to Expat Life: One Month On

I thought it’d be worth giving you an update on expat life, having worked for a month and received my first month’s salary. When I first moved to Poland, at the beginning of October, I had no idea what to expect because I had never lived nor worked abroad before. This really was a whole new …
