My Last 30 days

In Chile, when the old, crazy, and infirm are institutionalized and set out in a wheelchair on the patio to drool all over each other they are referred to as “locos de patio”. This is where we keep our locos de patio on the All Chile Forum.

As most of you have figured out by my not so well hidden posts i will be leaving chile.... the exact date is 30 days from now!.

Why? Why not!,

Its a time for a change, i will be leaving with my fiance i met in chile 1 year 1 month ago, we just clicked from day 1, she is from canada!

We are moving to New Zealand for atleast 1 year, no jobs lined up will take things as they come.

We choose New Zealand over Canada right now as the IT sector is booming in NZ, not so much in Canada.

It has not been ruled out that we may never move back to chile, we do like it here, but need a break from it, it would be good to return with a good business idea and implement it.

Anyway

I would like to thank everyone on this forum who has made my time here possible and bearable, and entertaining!,

From now on ill document any interesting things about leaving chile in this thread!

Chile's loss is New Zealand's gain! The very best wishes to you and your partner in all your future endeavours.

You are young (so you gotta do what you gotta do), sharp, a fast learner, perceptive and have the potential for a well-developed discernment ability for your age.

Always remember that just because you are not paranoid doesn't mean they are not out to get you :mrgreen:

Suerte dude.
There are two ways to be fooled.

One is to believe what isn't true;

the other is to refuse to believe what is true.

I had read it in a post you made a few days ago.... before you deleted it. :)

Unless you enjoy shoveling snow, NZ might be a better choice.

I too will miss your posts.

All the best luck and I hope that you do come back to Chile.

I will be very interesting to read your experience on trying to re-adjust and your comments on the culture shock. :)

Yea, I think the reverse / reintegration / transition shock to another country posts would be both interesting and useful for those here.

I know my last trip back to the States was like landing on Mars for me, but felt right at home in Colombia and in other Latin American countries.

Astute observation admin! It took me a good few months to get used to being back in Oz and I wasn't in Chile for nearly as long has Z has been. It was sort of foreign and familiar all at once.

Z, should you ever get wildly lost and find yourself in Perth, I'd be happy to buy you are beer or two! Best of luck with everything.
