“Something that I did not expect and that is certainly the reason why I feel I can live in Scotland for the rest of my life is how welcoming people have been with me. I was shocked at how it was so easy to feel integrated in any place/group and how some people would treat you like if you were family when they had only known you for months.
As an example, when I moved here I was staying in a flat I had to leave in the summer after I graduated and my boss at the time was going to be away from Scotland all summer so he offered me his house to stay while I was looking for a new flat like if he had known me forever. I never took the offer but I really appreciated it.”
