Brian is Hungarian American and he quit his high paid engineering job to pursue a lifestyle that resonates with him a lot more. He's always been drawn to a European way of living with more walkable cities and when he traveled to Barcelona several years ago, he said, that's it, "I'm saving up money, quitting this job that I hate, and moving to Europe."

His path wasn't direct but he had a mission in mind and that's ultimately what led him to completing his dream 3 years ago when he landed in the Catalonian capital.

Find out how he compares living in the US to Europe as well as how to adapt to Barcelona, make new friends, learn the language, and much more.
