The time has come to tell you about some changes that will happen in my life soon, and will also affect this blog. It's both exciting and sad news at the same time.
Last year a referendum about Britain's membership in the European Union took place. Surprisingly to most, a slight majority was in favour of leaving the bloc. People voted for different reasons, some of them were personal, some emotional, and some people might have been misled or uninformed. It might not have become the independence day that some were longing for either, but hopefully there will be a good outcome for normal British people and the whole of Europe. As you may know, the VegHog is an EU immigrant in Britain, and my status along many others was very much put into question due to these developments. So here is my big announcement: I have decided to leave the country.
At the end of this month I will be moving to Copenhagen in Denmark, and plan to settle down there permanently. My partner and I had been contemplating moving for quite a long time, but the looming brexit made it all much more urgent. He is a British citizen, and prefers relocating to the continent. The move is going to be a bit emotional after over ten years in the UK, but sadly I don't recognise this country as the same welcoming place that I arrived to. I hope that everything will turn out for the best, but there will be some uncertain times ahead.
Of course I'm very excited about the move, as Copenhagen is my absolute favourite city and I will then be closer to home. It will also be difficult in the beginning, learning the language, getting everything sorted etc. but we are ready. I will certainly continue blogging, however it can be a bit quiet here in June, before I have gotten a proper internet connection in my new home and so on. I try to keep you updated about what's happening.
Now I want to thank you for being my faithful readers and really hope that you will be following my new adventures as well!
