Are you looking for a professional pet sitter with individualized and personalized care? Are you not really fond of standard big hotels for dogs with cages where you never know who takes care of your beloved pet? Do you need someone to look after your four paws friend when you have an appointment or go on a business trip? We would like to introduce you to PetSitting5, an English-speaking pet sitting service in Prague.
Last week, I was out with my friends. When we decided to go home, it was getting pretty late, so my friends were thinking about which night bus to take. I walked them to the bus station, and they asked me which night bus I am taking. I responded by saying: “None, I am walking back home.” This response got me a lot of weirded-out looks.

Last week, while drinking my morning coffee at the lobby area at Domeq, I had the opportunity to have an interesting conversation with Kim Lougart, one of our tenants there.
Kim relocated to the Czech Republic from Denmark a year ago and has been living in Brno ever since while working at Infosys, a global leader in next-generation digital services and consulting.
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.
Today, we have the pleasure to get to know Oldrich Lang, our Expat & Immigration Consultant in Brno, a little bit better. Oldrich, or so-called Olda, has been working at Foreigners for the past eight months. He is 30 years old, living with his girlfriend and their dog Tedko. Originally, he comes from a small town of Hustopeče, located in the South Moravian Region. But for about the last 10 years he has been living in Brno, except for two years, when he was traveling in the US, Canada, and New Zealand.
In reaction to the ban on mass gatherings as one of the measures to stop the spread of coronavirus, many individuals, organizations, and companies had to shift holding events from the offline environment to the online world. We, at Foreigners, did it, and so the Czech Center New York, an institution introducing Czech culture to the audience in the most populous city in the United States.
Recently, we held a live-stream on our Facebook page in which we talked about how the current situation has been affecting renting, selling, and purchasing apartments and houses in the Czech Republic.
For those of you who prefer reading instead of watching the stream, we present a summary of the stream.
