Moving back to France

Post by eurobillsandcoins » Wed Jan 29, 2003 5:39 pm

I'm selling my shop in the next month to another chain of exchanges of my associates. I've decided to move back to France in July to tend to my parents and I miss home. I'm going to move back to Nanterre and drive to Paris everyday for work. I will be a branch director of a BNP Paribas branch in the 2nd arrondisement. I will have to give up my Canadian citizenship and I will have permanent residence in France. Funny, Olivier moved from France to Canada and I move to France from Canada. :D
I still need to find a house in Nanterre for me. I'm going to aris in a week to search but I did see a good E300,000 in Nanterre. I do not plan to go back to Canada and I might go as tourist to Canada sometimes. I just need to move back home for my family.Now I will have to adopt to the euro as everyday life.

Welcome in Europe !
I guess you're already used to the euro as a currency, so nothing really new there...


Why do you give up your life in Canada? Has it anything to do with the robbery last week?

Anyway, I hope you'll enjoy it in France!
And then you can practice your French some more! :p
Good luck !

Funny that we took the opposite direction! :-)

I don't understand why you should give up the canadien citizenship! I know many people who became canadians and are now living in France, Australia... You are french and Canadian. Canada and France don't forbid you to have both citizenships... Keep it. You never knows...

How long have you stayed in Canada? :)

Does anyone remember the Nanterre town hall incident? Where a person named Richard Durn murdered 8 councilors in the town hall in Nanterre. I will keep my citizenship as a Canadian no, its not the robbery, in France it has the most armed (and violent) robberies in banks so I'm quite worried of being injured or killed in a robbery so I'm thinking that job over.
