Some of us go abroad for studying, working or perhaps when following our life partner to their homeland. Some of us like to travel far and long to discover unfamiliar corners of the world. Reasons for leaving a home country are many but they all have connecting elements, not all of them necessarily being pleasant and commonly talked about – cultural shock, loneliness, even depression can hit once you root yourself out of the familiar land and try to plant yourself in a new geographical and cultural environment.
Mould is a fungus and, as typical in these tiny organisms, you may observe it growing in humid corners despite your careful regular cleaning and maintenance of your house. As you might already know, it can cause a lot of damage to the walls and furniture, but worse than that, it can cause breathing and skin problems if you are in contact with it regularly. For these reasons, you should be mindful and try to prevent mould appearing in your house in the first place.
Everyone probably has some ideas about their perfect home, but regardless of our individual demands and requirements, we all may have one thing in common: We want our home to have a soul; something interesting that would tell us its story as soon as we open the door.

With the Atlantic and Mediterranean influences as a result of the great navigations, the Portuguese cuisine presents a wide variety that mirrors the landscape, cultural heritage and resources available in each region.
As the pandemic situation in the Czech Republic is developing well with fewer people tested positive for COVID-19 every day, the Czech government continues to speed up easing some restrictions and has introduced new changes such as one affecting arrivals of family members of EU citizens in the Czech Republic.
Are you stuck in a foreign country all by yourself? This epidemic destroyed your plans? Well then, that makes two of us. This year, I decided to do my internship abroad, to be more exact in Brno, here, in the Czech Republic.
When I started this internship at Foreigners I had different expectations and plans. I thought I’d be able to travel a lot, visit new cities, or even different countries. I thought I’d be able to meet new people. But things don’t always go as planned and sometimes you might get yourself in an unpredictable situation.
