After 3 years, I’m leaving the country ! Was I a good citizen ? How much did I cost/earn during my stay ?
What is the best way to lose weight ? Doing more sport ? Eating less ?
Can you compensate overeating with “over-sporting” ?
This post is part of a series describing an expatriation from Belgium to Ukraine. The goal of this series is to demystify the expatriation, tell our own story with all the challenges we faced. What is described there can be adapted to a move to another state or even city.
After checking our motivation we have to make sure it’s financially possible (hopefully beneficial) so here come the : Cost comparison
This post is part of a series describing an expatriation from Belgium to Ukraine (and our check-list along the way).
The goal of this series is to demystify the expatriation, tell our own story with all the challenges we faced. What is described there can be adapted to a move to another state or even city.

The idea of this post came after realizing that on the same distance, if I was running I would be home half dead while after biking I didn’t even feel the need of stretching. So I decided to compare the efficiency of running & biking.
After that I asked myself, what about the car ? Bus ? Train ? Plane ?
What is the difference on short distance & long distance ?
All started when I was considering to get a membership in a gym nearby… Then I found an unlimited free one.
Phone ? Laptop ?
When you see colleagues & friends getting newer and “cooler” devices, it’s hard not to be tempted to upgrade yours too.
Is it a smart move ? In 94.72 % of case : NO !
I’m often thinking about this topic as I’m working in IT and I’m bombarded by advertisement about cool phone, amazing laptop, not-to-miss software !!! Being a bit geeky, I’m often tempted… But in the last few years I resisted well. My phone (a 4 year old HTC hero) is still surviving despite the abuse of my daughter throwing it on the floor or biting it. I used a donated laptop for 3 years and when I got in the mood of replacing it, I just bought a SSD hard drive for 80€ (it became even faster than my brand new corporate laptop )
