From here to God knows where.

About Pat

Hi. My name is Pat O Neill. I am a 56-year-old Irishman from Cork city.

Since I left a business, I was involved with in May 2017 I have found it difficult to find real paying employment. Despite having built up a lot of experience over the years, it is dawning on me that many companies think if you are over 50 years your knowledge is of no value to them.

I think this is a mistake.

I could start a blog and preach how unfair this is but I prefer to use my time more positively. I want to have some control over where my life goes from here. So I have decided to pack my bags. Move to a new country. A new city and blog about the experience.

The highs and the lows and hopefully a few adventures in-between.

I would hope to show people that despite the world seemingly taking an inward step it is possible to move to another country. Experience a new culture and that at the end of the day, most people in most counties are decent.

I booked my flights, and on the 14th of July 2018, I will arrive in Sofia Bulgaria. I am not sure how this will end up, but it will be great if you can join me on my journey. I will be posting regular posts, and comments are welcome.

There is life in the old dog yet.


After visiting Bulgaria – Macedonia – Albania -Serbia – Kosovo – Montenegro and Hungry I am currently in Las Palmas Gran Canaria blogging.

Join me on my journey.
