However, her lack of information on the necessary visa formalities for travelling within the EU ended in turmoil while simply hoping to return to her two-year old daughter for Christmas in the Ukraine.<br />"Moving to a new place is always quite challenging, especially when you move to another country. Besides such basic things as to get used to a new way of life in a new society you face lots of paper formalities which complicate your life greatly, especially at the beginning and without knowing a language. That is why it is extremely helpful for a foreigner to receive some assistance and professional advice, which we have found in the EURAXESS Services Centre. It is very difficult to overestimate the support we received. I would like to thank one more time the EURAXESS team for giving me a helping hand and being there for me when the times were so difficult."<br />
