A few weeks ago, I was at a small hotel in Italy.
My destination was the port of Bergamo, which is in northern Italy and borders Spain and Portugal.
The hotel is surrounded by a vast stretch of green, the backdrop to the city of Venice.
It’s a little bit off the beaten track, but it’s a place where you can get away from the crowds and the violence.
I was able to walk through the port without incident, as long as I stayed away from any trouble.
But I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to return.
And as I left the hotel, I felt a bit like a lost cause.
I didn’t know what to expect.
For weeks, I had been on a quest to travel to the US, where I was looking to find work.
I had a lot of friends and a lot in my network, and I was hopeful that I could find work and get my life back on track.
And then, in the middle of a summer, the US authorities announced they would temporarily close the country to travel.
The Schenge Area is a group of 19 European countries, and although there are also some smaller countries in the EU, they’re all members of the EU.
I have a passport and my family live in the US.
But the US is a place that is not my first choice of destination.
I’d had a number of offers from various countries, but I couldn’t make a choice.
I don’t have a lot else to look forward to.
My friend and I had planned to go to New York City, but then we saw a notice that there was no more US visa slots available.
The announcement seemed like a good reason for us to reconsider.
But it wasn’t.
The US government has a number the way they announce the numbers for visa slots, so the news was met with an immediate reaction from my friends and me.
We were in shock.
The reason we could apply for visas and get our lives back on the right track was because of this sudden announcement.
The people who were supposed to fill them were not going to be there.
The decision was shocking, especially for us who are already struggling to make ends meet.
I felt like the government had just closed our door.
And it was the same for everyone else in our family.
As we sat down to eat, our stomachs grew bigger.
There was a lot going through our minds: What if I don.t want to leave Italy?
What if they close my door?
What do I do?
Our parents had worked hard for years to get us here.
They have a nice home here, and we have a very good job here, but we can’t afford to live anywhere else.
So what do we do?
And the thought of going back home to Italy was too much to bear.
So we made a decision: We were going to make it happen.
We decided to take the most important step in our lives, to travel here.
I’m going to go and visit my parents in New York, and in the meantime, we are going to keep working hard to find jobs and start a family.
And we are also going to work harder than ever to get back on our feet.
But we are worried about our future.
What is the status of the Schendel Area?
When the Scheuneland was created in 1991, the countries that make up the European Union (EU) decided to establish a single passport for all of its citizens, regardless of whether they were born in the country of their parents’ birth or not.
The aim was to keep everyone’s passports separate from one another.
So if you were born to a German-born father and a Bulgarian-born mother, your passport will have no connection to your mother’s, and so you can’t visit Bulgaria or Germany.
The first Schengel Area countries were Denmark, the Netherlands, Belgium, Sweden, Norway, Iceland, Switzerland and Cyprus.
But since 2005, most of the countries in Europe have been joining together under the Scheugeland.
So now we are in the second phase of the migration crisis.
A large number of people who have been living in the UK for the past decade or so are now arriving at the end of the first phase.
Some of them have moved to the UK to seek work or to study, but others have come to the Scheggen area in search of better living conditions.
They are living in hotels, working in restaurants and even in some shops.
But they don’t want to stay in their own countries, so they are heading to Schengens borders in the hope of getting a visa to go back home.
And the Scheigens countries have become even more crowded.
There are about 2 million people living in Schenges countries, compared to 1.4 million in other Schengened countries.
In 2015, more than 50% of all those in the Netherlands had
