Yes finally it’s been a Month!

It was 29th Mar, 2019 7:30 AM when I arrived in Munich International Airport for first time also it was first arrival ever in my life somewhere else from my home country Bangladesh. It was a flight with Singapore Airlines, previously I had no experience of any airlines services, I choose this only for 2 reason, first one is 30% around discounted ticket and another is to see the world most beautiful Changi Airport Singapore. That costs me 23 hours of journey where if I choose some others then the usual flight duration could be only 14 hours!

The first day here in Einsteinstraße München, was a bit learning and knowing each stuffs. Whatever I see and noticed almost everything is new! Faisal Ibrahim one of my ex-colleague from Aan-Nahl Software Limited he came here in this city 15 days before my arrival. and on the first day he came to visit me in my apartment. That was really helpful for me, Thanks Faisal bro again. Still now when I am writing this article I am waiting for you 🙂 to have a Khuchuri lunch together!

I leave my home village on 2001 right after my S.S.C exam. It’s around 18 years now, but it was in same country and just a division distance, and now this case it’s another Country and it’s around 7,287 km distance!! So it’s not possible for me to move anytime I want 🙁

While I was in my home country I had really a Luxurious, Easy and Family life. As a Senior Software Engineer with 12+ years of experience it was really easy for me to live in any standard. On top of everything the only issue I was facing the security of my and my family, however Alhamdulillah Allah gave me a chance to change it, that’s why I am here to find a secured and healthy life.

Yeah, I always find myself a bit introvert, even when I was in my home country. I don’t talk first, I don’t make friends first but I look for, whenever I find it’s good to go with I do it. Though it’s a bit time consuming and in some cases I find the other person already started thinking negative about me.

Here in Munich, for at least first 15 days I was feeling too much home sick, too much alone 🙁 It’s not only me, was feeling it’s everyone alone here. They only talk whenever it’s required, they walk whenever there is a reason, they start talking to the point, with no introduction of anything. I was feeling like no this is not for me, this culture is not for me, I didn’t find any reason why I am here 🙁

To find a solution I started talking a lot of my friends who already abroad for a longer time and family members. Everyone was saying like at-least stay for a couple of months so that you know if it is really what you are feeling now. Otherwise you might find guilty when you back here. Then later performed 2 time Istikharah salah and In a result I settled my mind to stay here 🙂 Now, it’s all easy for me. The things I was feeling not for my first few days now I find it’s for me 🙂

Now, I am enjoying staying here, now I can move around without any help. Also found a couple of Asian shops which all are full of Asian foods and stuff. It’s already been a month, expecting to visit my home within next 4/5 months.

Thanks for reading!

Flying to Munich, Germany – My first time ever Abroad Travel Experience!

For personal blogging I am still new, though I was writing technical articles or mostly programming tutorials since a decade. This is first time I am far-far-away of my home and I feel like writing it all is the only way to keep a footprint so that later in future I can spend time reading this all or my kids. That’s why writing this article late around 30 days of my travel, though for content organization I will put the date around mid of Mar, 2019. I wish in near future I will find it easy to write day to day event or stories.

The journey started at 8:30 AM from Dhaka, Bangladesh, everyone of my family already started feeling my absence. It was most painful and loving for my beloved wife, because that time she started to know how it is the meaning of absence, even on top of everything if it is the first person. On the other hand my little angel “Abiyat Tuhra – Umamah” she was a bit not much more, it’s may be because she is only 4 years old. She was feeling something only because the surroundings! But I know, she knows I am leaving them behind for a bit longer time than the usual.

I had almost everyone of my Family that day on my apartment, It was great to feel how important I was in my family and I was not alone in my family life there. My parents, siblings, mother-in-law, brother-in-law and on top of everyone Uncle Yeakub-UL Islam, the most senior Guardian of our family who came only to see-off me from 300 KM away!! Thanks everyone, I miss you all!

@Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport on 28.03.2019, I wish you can guess who is this all here 🙂

After getting inside of the Airport I was feeling like, now it’s my turn to feel what I am leaving behind!!! Yes it’s everyone and it’s one by one. On top of everyone my cute angel, my daughter!!! About my parents, first time I had that same feeling on 2001 that’s 18 years ago! when I choose to move on other city (Beanibazar, Sylhet) for my Education and Career. For my loving wife, she has the skill and passion on my Ambitions so we both need to be confident of what we are doing.

When I was in check-in counter, I had to wait for around 30 mins for my papers verification. It was a bit panic for me and my father! Why they should keep us waiting while the embassy did their job? Who they are to confirm my validity? A flight agency will verify my papers? Am I looking false? However, it was all good and the officer also explained me why they did it all 🙂

Now it’s time to start for the long journey and the lonely life. When I was hugging you all, I was really crying by heart! According to the living standard difference between Bangladesh and Germany it was not possible for me to avoid this opportunity and it’s better to feel that. and it’s better to say you all bye at-least for 4/6 months. Then I wish to see you all again on home 🙂

A shot from Singapore Airlines lounges @ Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport

Yes, it’s already started! the things I was previously used to see by television / video camera, I started seeing them everything one by one by the built-in camera of my creator my OWN Eye. Everything feeling like new and first time ever! On the other hand, I was feeling the absence of my family members on a corner of my heart! Where the are now, what they are doing, how they are thinking about me now?

My departure was 12:40 PM from DAC (Hazrat Shahjalal Internaitonal Airport) – SIN (Changi Airport Singapore) for 5 hours transit and then – MUC (Franz Josef Strauses, Germany) where the arrival time was 06:30 AM of next morning.

The plane started it’s journey in time at 12:40 PM but there was a bit flight traffic on that day, that took almost 30-45 mins to fly us up!

My Bangladeshi brother Ibrahim Bin Shake, A friendly always smiley facing person. I was glad to have him with me 🙂

I was lucky to meet my Bangladeshi brother Ibrahim Bin Shake home district Brahmanbaria, He is living in South Korea for around a decade and bachelor! Making money for his future!!! You can say we both found us special and tour guide in some cases. He has a lot of travel experiences but very little ability to speak English, so he started teaching me the pros and cons of a flight and lonely life 🙂 Also on transit time we both had same amount of time like 4/5 hours. Had dinner together and he was the only person paying all the costs. However, I honored him by one thousand Bangladeshi new notes.

This is what you will see when you left cloud behind you!

After having two different flight, one for 6 hours and another for 10 hours long, I arrived on Munich Franz Josef Strauses Airport at 7:30 AM on 29.03.2019, it took only 10-15 mins for me to complete my entry and finding my luggage’s. Both of the Airport Changi and Munich was fully armed with modern technology stuffs.

When, I was getting out of the airport, I starting feeling the Modern Age the technology world, I was looking for something will amaze me! Yet, it’s there! Just in front of the Airport I found her!

You guess who she is!!!

I knew this city Munich as the birthplace of BMW, and when I saw her, I admitted yes it is true! and I loved her way of welcoming everyone on arrival of Munich.

Yes, it’s all for now, thanks for reading.
