Is there any legitimate way or country in the EU I could move to without having to actually get a job in said country/marry a citizen and gain my eu passport.

For context I actually work in Norway on a foreign workers residence permit but it as yet only allows me to work there unhindered. I could feasibly move there and then apply for citizenship after a few years there but as much as I love Norway it’s not exactly where I’d want to settle down as it’s too expensive and find locals to be quite cold and reserved.

Sick to the back fucking teeth of living here in the U.K. it honestly offers no tangible benefits to me and it’s only getting worse.

Outright buying a Maltese passport or through naturalisation if you can invest at least half a mil (Spain, Portugal, some others).

I have a mate who married a Norwegian girl whilst working there and he learned the language in two years to a conversation level. He says the healthcare is second to none, old people have no worries about their future, schools are excellent and everything just works.. If I were you, I would consider it seriously to settle there ( not necessarily get married Smiling )

What do you need to know mate?
You can’t order online so in store is the only way to purchase.

Be prepared to wait outside the store as they only let a few people in at the same time.

That’s the case with all ‘luxury’ retailers at the moment.

Queues constantly outside Chanel, LV etc when going past. Fuck waiting an hour to drop a few bags Laughing out loud

Get to Goyard fifteen mins earlier on a weekday and you should be alright.
FYI, small lettering is free up to 3 characters I think, the big letters cost extra but can’t remember how much.

Do they tend to keep a lot of stock? Any reliable price guides online? She’s after a Belvedere MM but getting up to London is a bit of a hassle so need to be sure
