17 Oct Moving to a new Country
I have news for you guys: A few months ago I moved in with my boyfriend and I don’t live in Munich anylonger. The reason why I haven’t told you earlier is that we first wanted to make sure we really like it here. I’ve not only moved in with my boyfriend but we also “emigrated”. I will explain the reasons behind this decision and where we live now in this blog post:
First of all I need to mention that it was clearly no change for me to move in with my boyfriend. For some people renting an apartment with your partner is a big step. For us it really wasn’t! Due to traveling together constantly we’ve literally spent 24 hours together the past year. We work together, we travel together and now we also live together. Not much has changed though. The only thing which is different now is that I realized that my boyfriend is also an amazing roommate! For instance we haven’t argued once about who washes the dishes, who carries down the garbage, who buys groceries etc. Not all men are this “suitable for daily use” 😛 So I’m very happy having found one of these kinds 😀
When we met one year ago my boyfriend lived in Frankfurt and I lived in Munich. We knew since the beginning that we didn’t want to have a long distance relationship (we would have just suffered too much of it) so moving in together was obvious. We first thought about renting an apartment in Frankfurt because both of our families live there. Then we figured that if we are in Germany we are usually staying with our families anyways. So why should we pay for an apartment in Frankfurt which we wouldn’t use?
Exactly during that time we had a job in the Maldives where met this wonderful blogger couple. They’ve been living for a few years now exactly in that place where we live now. They’ve told us so many good things about their residence that a few weeks later we visited them and immediately fell in love with this beautiful island. Already during our second visit we looked for apartments and decided quite spontaneously to move to:
Some of you may have been here. I haven’t heard so much about it before so I was really surprised how beautiful and paradise like a place can be which is so close to Germany. There are many direct flights to Malta and you can reach the island in only a bit more than 2 hours. You can often find return flights to Malta for below 100€ so also flight wise Malta is a great location.
Furthermore, the weather here is just perfect! Even now in October it is still very warm and sunny and during the day can mostly leave the house without a jacket.
Malta also has lots of stunning places such as Valletta or the Blue Lagoon. A separate blog post will follow with many Travel Tips for Malta 🙂
Also finding an apartment in Malta was much easier than in Germany. I was used to Munich which is a catastrophe in that relation 😛 Here, it only took us a few days to find a dream apartment with seaview, perfect location, modern interior etc. And we pay the same price like I pay for my apartment in Munich (which is only half the size) 😛 By the way I still have my apartment in Munich as my brother currently lives there. He is doing an internship in Munich. For sure Malta (not only when it comes to rent) is much cheaper though. Groceries, going out to eat, partying, taxi rides etc… almost everything costs less than in Germany. Furthermore, we didn’t need to learn another language because everyone speaks English here 🙂
For sure we haven’t regretted one second moving to Malta! In the pasth months Malta has become our dream residence. Because traveling is our job we really feel like being on vacation now when we’re home 😀
We love most the weather here in Malta and the amazing atmosphere which you can feel on the entire island. For those who’ve visited Malta you know exactly what I’m talking about 😉
Do you want me to film a Room Tour on YouTube for you guys? 🙂 Btw our Santorini-Video just came online. Definitely have look at it 😉
Would you have guessed that we live in Malta now? And have you ever been here and if so: How did you like it here?
