Been to both. If you're looking to party Newcastle is amazing.
For an actual nice city though with enty of other things to do, Edinburgh is amazing.

Gf's originally from Carlisle and we went to the wall last year. If you like history, definitely try and visit the old Roman fort at Vindolanda.

I agree with Brehme and Harpsabu. Edinburgh's a gem.

Do you edit your pics in any way? They are amazing.

I do, but nothing too crazy, I try to make them look like what I saw at the time because my camera is old (I bought another one recently) and the color range isn´t that great so the when I move them to PC they often look washed up.
Mostly I try to recover some details in the shadows, if some parts of the image are over exposed I correct those and also the colors because of the problem with the low dynamic range that I mentioned before, post processing is very helpful in those situations.

The one´s that´s more edited is the one of the milky way but we´re talking extreme conditions so that´s the only way you get those king of shots. It was almost 1 am and mostly pitch black, had to use the flashlight to get some colour in the grass/house and a 30 second exposure for the sky otherwise you´d mostly see black. You have to somehow compensate the lack of light by using more time and also lower the "quality of the picture" that´s why the picture looks grainy compared to the others.

Any Czech FIF'ers around? Been looking to live in Prague (have a nice job opportunity there in Logistics) and was wondering if any of the FIFers could help me out with questions about monthly salary and places to rent.

Been a couple times in Prague, and always felt it was super cheap and would be nice to live in. Anyway thanks in advance!

Friend lived there for 2-3 years due to work. I could ask him about stuff and how it is for foreigners but he came back 3 years ago.

I remember he told me it was great living there but the colleagues were weird, being mostly Czech and him not bothering to learn the language.

Well, the company I'd work for is certainly massive enough, so loads of English speaking and internationals. But would love to hear more about that.
But I'm completely unsure how much monthly salary I could expect (I'm used to Belgian standards, so I reckon it's waaaay lower) and how the housing and stuff works (or what's an acceptable rent so I don't get scammed). Google only helps you a little bit. So would greatly appreciate all the help that's available!

Ironically, in the previous financial office I was working with the owners and lots of the people working there were Czech. And previously I had an affiliation with a company was based in Czechia but was employing mostly Polish people (it was right on the border).

I've asked my friend though who is more likely to be relative to your experience but I can also ask a couple of people I've kept in touch with that are from Prague though they are quite cocky about how amazing their city is, with them being immigrants away from it :lol:

- - - Updated - - -

So from my friend who lived in Prague, not sure how up to date he is, but he claims that the situation is still similar:

- Rents are about 600 euros per month for a small flat (2 rooms; 1 bedroom), but of course the Czechs have their own currency so that may depend. [This probably has changed though]
- Public transport is well price, as are taxis. He says it perhaps has the cheapest metro/tram pass in Europe.
- Nightlife is good, cost of food and drinks is not high. Overall the city probably gives out a better lifestyle than Brussels in terms of nightlife, going out, having fun, things to do etc [he only stayed for 3 months at Brussels so not sure if his claim is valid]
- The airport is close to the city.
- His only concern is the covid situation, but he's always like "if I wasn't married I'd still be in Prague". Now he's unsure of the situation there.

I can ask my co-worker tomorrow. He's born & raised and lives in Prague. Toured me around last August when I went there.

I've always wondered... What are the language barriers that exist for people looking move country to work in some of these European countries? I guess, at the end of the day, if you're good enough, it doesn't matter.

Azul, great photos once again, mate.

There is always a stigma about people who move to your country without even try to learn your language while been working there for over 10 years. I kind of understand them though

Well, I'm only speaking my own behalf. But I haven't noticed any barriers at all, in Denmark everybody spoke English, in Spain I also spoke English on the workfloor, and the job I'm applying for in Czech Republic is also completely in English (and Dutch). Aside from the workfloor, I didn't bother learning Danish, and I won't bother learning Czech, maybe only the essential ones such as:

Beer?
Boobs?
Gagliardini is a donkey
