IRELAND VS SCOTLAND: WHERE WILL YOU GO?
I love the friendliness of the people, the nature and the nightlife. Dublin is not a huge city, so it’s easy to see all of the interesting spots if you’re coming for a holiday. Some pubs in Temple bar have a live music from 12pm till midnight. They are full of tourists from all over the world and you can feel an atmosphere of nightlife even at 3 pm. I believe that’s quite unique. I love the nature and in a 30 minutes journey you could be on a 5km long sandy Portmarnock beach. And while you’re there, a few kilometres down the road there is a beautiful Malahide castle and gardens. Dublin Castle is also a must visit place, Trinity college, Phoenix park, Stephen’s Green Park. Most of the museums in Dublin have a free entry all year around. If you have time, definitely visit Powerscourt Gardens, voted as top 10 gardens in the world. There is a cute waterfall nearby worth visiting.
What Irish do in the city is have an afternoon tea in The Shelbourne hotel, try to find a secret location of “The Blind Pig” Speakeasy prohibition bar, and if you’re like me, more into bars than pubs, weekend evenings are perfect to be spent in one of the bars in Dawson Street. During the day, have a walk around South William’s Street, Grafton Street. Have a stroll along the river Liffey and check out Dublin’s technology hub in Grand canal dock, where companies like Facebook and Google have their European HQ. It’s also the most international and youngest area in the city with modern architecture. – Ana Maria, Life in Dublin

I CROATI LIBERI DI LAVORARE IN EUROPA – IL PICCOLO
Sempre più Stati membri scelgono di aprire il proprio mercato del lavoro ai cittadini croati. É uno sviluppo positivo – ha affermato ieri il Commissario europeo Marianne Thyssen, responsabile proprio del portafoglio dell’Occupazione – la mobilità lavorativa è un’opportunità sia per i lavoratori che per le economie di arrivo». In Croazia, dove lo stipendio medio è di circa 700 euro e la disoccupazione di oltre il 15%, la “mobilità lavorativa” è già molto popolare.
Da un lato perché l’ottenimento del permesso di lavoro (necessario in quei paesi che mantengono le restrizioni) non è poi così difficile, dall’altro perché alcuni Paesi membri hanno già aperto completamente le proprie frontiere nel luglio 2013. Ecco che i giovani, di cui uno su due non ha lavoro in patria, non hanno aspettato due anni per iniziare il proprio esodo nell’Unione, partendo soprattutto in Irlanda, paese anglofono e “ad accesso libero”. É il caso di Ana-Maria Hota, nata a Zagabria nel 1982 e partita per Dublino appena due mesi dopo l’ingresso della Croazia nell’Ue, portandosi dietro marito e due figli. «Lavoravo come parrucchiera a Zagabria, nel mio proprio salone, ma avevo l’impressione di dare troppo al mio Paese, mentre c’erano sempre delle tasse nascoste dappertutto – racconta – Il sole, il buon cibo e i bei paesaggi non erano abbastanza per rendermi felice».

NUR MIT DER SCHERE BEWAFFNET – ANA-MARIJAS STREBEN NACH GLÜCK
Dies ist ein kleiner Bericht einer Frau aus einem Frisörsalon der Hauptstadt eines kleinen Balkanstaates. Ihre Geschichte erschien nicht auf einer libertären Internetseite, die sich dezidiert mit den Lehren der Österreichischen Schule beschäftigt. Es ist eine einfache Geschichte einer einfachen Frau, die bis vor kurzem noch nie etwas von den Lehren Mengers und Mises gehört hat.
