Thank-you to Klix and ZenicaBlog!

As a lot of you probably already know, I'm currently 'enjoying' the obligatory 15 seconds of fame that, perhaps, all of us go through at least once in our lifetime.

Earlier this evening, Bosnian news portal Klix, along with local news portal ZenicaBlog, posted articles which promoted this very blog that I am writing!

I'm not one to seek fame, or anything like that, so I will leave it at that.

Hopefully, though, I will receive a number of potential long-term readers after this evening! The views for this blog have sky-rocketed in the last couple of hours; I may need to employ staff, hehe!

Seriously now, thanks guys, again. I really appreciate it.

  1. I have to ask you a question. How do you hope to integrate your wife/fiancee to life in Australia? And, what's your plan if 6 months after life in Australia she tells you she's not happy there. Because, there will be a point where she will tell you that (6 months is arbitrary, but you get the point). We have all gone trough this. There is probably a point in your stay in Bosnia where you were frustrated and not happy because x, y and z. But women are different. This is very important to them. Given that she cannot hop on the bus and be back in her hometown in 2 hours to recharge her batteries, what's your plan for this? I am asking because that's what happened to me. I was in relationship and woman after I brought her from Bosnia to USA left because she was not happy. I gave my all, and it did not work. I thought to myself, I made a mistake for bringing someone over, I should have found a girl that has already emigrated or has some concept of how life is for immigrants. And that was so hard to accept that someone whom you gave all and created a chance for better life, left it all and went back to Bosnia.

    I wish you guys lots of happiness and love. I think Aussies are amazing people because they are very relaxed and not as much part of the rat race like Germans or Americans and they also take people as they are, not judgmental or prejudiced, Australia is beautiful country.

    God bless and keep writing.

  2. I have to comment on this as I have a simple answer on your question. No one is the same !!!
    Probably ur girl haven't been strong enough to go all through the journey. I know what I'm talking about as I emigrated from Bosnia to Australia 10y ago to marry my fiance. I came here by myself. I came for love and better life. I do have hard times, but who doesn't ? I got homesick from time to time, but I learned how to live with it and get over that. Since my time here I went back three time for visit. It's all about your own will !
    With Rusty spending his time in Zenica mainly because of that girl she should feel fortune to have somebody like that. And let me tell you something Aussies are great people very welcoming and warm. I bet she will be just fine here as there is plenty of Bosnians around.

  3. Thank you for the comments!

    I was wondering how exactly to respond to that first post, but 'Miss Nature' you said it perfectly.
    Thank you for your concern and interest, but with these things; everything is different. I can't say for certain that this will be a fairytale for the rest of our lives, but life is about taking risks to get somewhere, and that's what I'm doing now.

    There is nothing to lose by trying.

  4. I just want to tell you Hi and welcome to Bosnia.

  5. Rusty, thank you for spreading a word (and maybe more) on our beautiful country. Enjoy Bosnia! I love it
