MY SLOVAK EXPERIENCE

Blog: Bratislava is great if you give it a chance

Ecuadorian Diego Loyola has lived in Slovakia since 2010. He talks about his Slovak experience in this podcast interview.

You might be familiar with the name of Diego Loyola, like I was: I read it many times on Facebook posting, collaborating in the Foreigners in Bratislava group or in some articles like this one on the Slovak Spectator blog. Several of my friends and colleagues attended his parties and events.

So I was curious to know more about why he’s so active for the community, what brought him here from Ecuador and how he enjoys life in Slovakia.

He says that learned an interesting rule: If you make it through the first three years in Slovakia , then you are likely to stay indefinitely.

My Slovak Experience is a podcast by Emanuele Terenzani. In each episode, he interviews one of his fellow foreigners living in Slovakia. You can follow the podcast on YouTube, on iTunes, on Stitcher or Tunein.
