"Beyim" Immigration Diaries
Kısa bir hayat hikayesiyle başlayayım. İzmir Karşıyaka’da doğdum. İzmir’de devam eden eğitim hayatıma Eskişehir’de Anadolu Üniversitesi İletişim Fakültesi’nde devam ettim ve okurken eşimle tanıştım yaş (18) 🙂 O mühendislik fakültesini bitirdi, ben de basın yayın bölümününü bitirdim.
Okul bittikten 1 sene sonra evlendik ve İstanbul’da yaşamaya başladık. İstanbul’da 7 yıl yaşadıktan sonra eşime gelen iş teklifiyle Hollanda’ya taşınmaya karar verdik. Bu karar tabii ki hemen olmadı, çok düşündük Türkiye’yi bırakmak, yeni bir hayat, yeni bir dil. Hollanda’nın resmi dili Felemenkçe. Almancaya kaba dil diyenler Hollanda’ya hiç gelmesin 🙂
We have a daughter. While he was thinking how to get used to it, we found ourselves looking for a house in the Netherlands. Should it be moved to a furnished or unfurnished house? When we say what will we do if the house is unfurnished, we will start to sell the items gradually. We sent friend news to the spouse, I shared it on LetGo and the items started to be sold. (The company carried the items for free, but I did not want to take many items) and the big day came. Items with the shipping company set off before us. Then we fell on the roads, first we came to Amsterdam and then to Eindhoven by train.
First we had to find the house, we started looking for a house with an assistant to help us in my wife's job. We had to stay in the hotel until our belongings arrived. We stayed at the hotel for two weeks, during this time funda, pararius, househunting.nl sitelerinden ev aradık.
Since we live in an apartment in Istanbul, let's have a garden, touch green, let's enjoy Turkish Coffee in the garden with my husband…
When we say dreams and lives will be again, we really found a house that we want. Our house is a 3-storey new building. It is not a gable roof like typical European houses. Triangular houses are generally old houses. The house we hold is a bit far from the center, if we say far, 15 minutes to the market by bus. (Like us, this is the distance to the Istanbul child.

Since Eindhoven is a region that receives a lot of immigration, there are many Indians, Pakistanis, Chinese. Our next-neighbor is Chinese and our other neighbor is Irish. Everyone is different. The difference does not create chaos, it offers cultural diversity.
Let me start with a short life story. I was born in Karşıyaka, İzmir. I continued my education in İzmir at Anadolu University Faculty of Communication in Eskişehir and met my wife while I was studying (18) 🙂 She graduated from engineering faculty and I graduated from press department.
We got married 1 year after the school ended and we started living in Istanbul. After living in Istanbul for 7 years, we decided to move to the Netherlands with a job offer from my husband. This decision obviously did not happen immediately, so we thought we leave Turkey, a new life, a new language. The official language of the Netherlands is Dutch. Those who call German rough language should never come to the Netherlands 🙂
We have a daughter. Thinking about how he would get used to it, we found ourselves searching for houses in the Netherlands. Should I move to a furnished or unfurnished house? If we say what we will do with the unfurnished house, we will slowly start selling the items. We released news to friends, I shared it at LetGo and the items started to be sold. (The company was carrying the goods for free but I didn’t want to take much goods) and the big day came. The transport company and the goods left before us. Then we fell down the roads, first came to Amsterdam and then by train to Eindhoven.
First we had to find the house, we started looking for an assistant to help us with my husband’s job. We were supposed to stay at the hotel until our stuff arrived. We stayed at the hotel for two weeks, during this time we constantly searched the house from the sites of funda, pararius, househunting.nl.
Since we live in Istanbul, let’s touch the green garden, let’s enjoy Turkish Coffee in the garden with my brain …
When we say that there will be dreams and lives again, we found a house that we really want. Our house is a 3-storey, new building. It is not like typical European houses with a triangular roof. Houses with triangular roofs are usually old houses. Our house is a little far from the center, away from the bazaar 15 min. We like this house because we are close to my daughter’s school.

There are many Indian, Pakistani and Chinese people because Eindhoven is a region that receives a bit of immigration. Our neighbour is Chinese, our neighbour is Irish. Everybody’s different. Diversity does not create chaos, it offers a diversity of culture.
