The water bill will bankrupt you.

The planet needs an extra rainforest to keep up with the amount of toilet paper you need.

This does not get mentioned enough, but Slovak communist plumbing is really great. In Greece our toilet would have been totally plugged already.

When you enter a room with your shoes on they scream in high pitced tones which will wreck your ears, because it seems you have just pulled a mini-Chernobyl on them. Oh, the shocking level of contamination!!!! TAKE OFF YOUR SHOES!!!!

In Slovakia not taking off your shoes around the house is the Belgian equivalent of serving French Fries without mayonaise.

You will miss not having a garden to pee in when they hog the bathroom in the morning (and the evening).

For the past two weeks I have been living together with the Slovak version of Monica -but totally not competitive when playing games – and Phoebe -with a violin, not a guitar- from Friends.

Am still looking for Rachel, but she’s suspiciously absent.

Rachel, will you be there for me too?

Which would make me a mixture of Joey, Chandler and Ross.

I overeat.

I use humor as a shield. Could that BE more obvious??

I am a nerd.

I love dinosaurs. I mean Civil War generals.

On the bright side:

  • They bring you tea
  • The purify your skin
  • They cook for you. They even cook something just for you when they are eating the Slovak national dish, Bryndzove halusky. (Imagine a bit of cat vomit)
  • They have a totally unmasculine amount of patience when listening to your problems, challenges, frustrated ambitions…
  • They don’t allow you to eat alone
  • They compare the pics on your identity cards to serial killers
  • They cosy up and watch series in the evening
  • They do the shopping
  • They get you avocados
  • They bake desserts
  • They don’t have fragile male egos to make any sort of discussion impossible from the start
  • Everything smells nice

So no one told you life was gonna be this way…


Treat us to a cup of coffee

It's a great joy and honor to be able to create content for our readers. It's nothing short of a calling and if it would not be rewarding we would of course not be doing it. That being said it's also true that it sure doesn't come easy. Thousands and thousands of hours go into providing this website for you. Countless hours of research, reading, studying, discussions, brainstorms, some heated arguments between the driving forces behind this site about the content offered. Honestly, this website costs blood, sweat and tears. Ok, maybe not blood, but plenty of sweat and tears. It’s not cheap either. It’s safe to say that this site is like a full-time job on top of our regular jobs. So what we are asking is this: If you’ve had some fun on our site, you could spread some joy of your own and support us. We are hell bent on improving the quality of this site. If you treat us to just one (hopefully more than one) cup of coffee (3€) we will feel energized to raise the bar. Every donation will strictly be used to improve this website. So no, we won’t actually buy coffee. Thank you very much! PS Yes, this is a picture of Zuzi.
