The days that led to me leaving Nigeria were full of anxiety! Not because I was not sure about my decision to leave the country but because my visa was taking too long to come. Everything about the relocation process to this country was just different and for the first time, I also asked myself the same question everyone asks me when I tell them my country of choice.

Why on earth did I pick Hungary?

Yes, I relocated to Budapest, Hungary

…to pursue my Master’s Degree in Communication and Media Science, and ultimately live my best life. It’s okay if you are also wondering why Hungary but what I’m not sure of is if I’ll be able to make you understand just yet why this country makes sense to me. But here’s a quick back story.

Budapest, Hungary

Before the Japa fever peaked, I had always had the intention to leave the country. I wanted to leave Nigeria for many reasons but study was top of the list. I had initially considered Canada but from my findings, I thought I’d be bored to a stupor and lose myself. The thought of Canada didn’t quite excite me therefore, it can wait till I have a family. I also considered the UK but the thought of the expenses and how hectic it could be for my family and me, in the long run, ruled that out as an option.

Then I began to wander on the street of YouTube and voila, I found Budapest, Hungary. Or more like, I found a pretty Nigerian lady who has been living in Budapest for 8 years and had many nice things to say about the city. I activated my research mode and began to dig deep into Hungary in general. The deeper I dug, the more I fell in love with Budapest. It didn’t take long before I was sure I wanted to be here and so the journey began.

Why Hungary?

Believe me, if I want a thing, I do not wait for people nor do I seek validation. I had the option of looking for an agent to help with my processes but I did not find one. Not like I really looked for though but then I just thought I could do it myself. If only I knew what was about to hit me. The process of relocating to Hungary is different and it’s far from how different you think it is. I started this process in February and I just got here in October.

The process shook me, tested my faith, and I believe God taught me some lessons that I’ll forever hold on to. I have a lot to say about the whole relocation process, my school and its admission process, visa application, and the almighty wait. I’ll put these things out in bits but know this; since I’ve arrived, it’s been really stressful and cold but I still believe I made the right decision.

I Relocated to Budapest

So, cheers to a whole new experience, the many memories that will be created in this land, and to sharing as much as I can share with you. Feel free to leave your good wishes and questions in the comment section. I’ll reply to all of them.
