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.
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.
