A year and a half ago, we made a decision: I was going to move.

About a year ago, I decided that getting this done without professional help was not a very good idea and would take forever, so I got set up with a lawyer and had her guide me through the process.

After lots of juggling with bureaucracies, some unfortunate delays, and some repeats of things I had already done before, I dropped off a 1 cm thick file of paperwork at the consulate a few weeks ago

Today, I went back there to fetch my passport, containing the visum.

Tomorrow, FOSDEM starts. After that, I will be moving to a different continent!
