Sam’s Nikolaev Visit with Bill and Larisa

Sam’s Nikolaev Visit with Bill and Larisa.

Sam recently spent time in Nikolaev. His sole purpose was to get to know a lady he had corresponded with for some time. That friendship failed to materialize but, with Sam’s positive attitude towards life, he was able to create more friendships than he could have possibly imagined or expected. Sam lived in Ukraine for close to three months. He spent time with many people in both Nikolaev and Odessa. Sam’s Nikolaev visit was an experience he will never forget.

This is a great example of how to find a life partner in Ukraine. Over the past ten years, Larisa and I have met with and helped hundreds better understand the process of cross cultural relationships. In Sam’s case, he always thinks positive. He has always searched with an open mind. Sam is the kind of guy we like to help because he is always positive and listens to what we have share. We enjoyed Sam’s Nikolaev visit and the opportunity to help.

Sam’s Nikolaev Visit a Success.

When Sam sent me the following letter, I wrote him back and asked if I could share his letter with my readers. He was more than happy to share his thoughts, experiences and gratitude. He is a nice guy that just wants to find the woman who is searching for him. I have changed his name and few other personal details without editing grammar etc. Sam’s Nikolaev visit was a definite success.

Dear Bill and Larissa,

Thanks so much for your birthday greetings.  I had a lovely day here in Oz and an enjoyable meal in the evening with friends.

Finally I’ve been able to sign paperwork being final property settlement agreement with my Ex – Donna.  As I mentioned previously; my Ex still works in the business with me.  I have already interviewed and found a replacement for Donna whom will start on 9th January.  Donna will spend a week or two training Nancy and then move to Brisbane to commence her new job etc., and be closer to the kids.   To our credit we’ve remained good friends and have a healthy respect for each other.

I must say that I really enjoyed my time in the Ukraine.  What an amazing country and people. I got to meet and make friends with some fantastic folks.   The kindness and care shown by yourself, Larissa and teachers touched me.   Sure the last 6 weeks or so was a little difficult and it tried to put a dampener on things, but overall I don’t regret one thing.

My eye appears to be finally settling down; and the specialist here commented on the outstanding job that Surgeon Galina did on my eye in Odessa.  I’m so grateful for her expertise and help. My new glasses are helping a real lot and finally I’m back at gym and able to get my body back into some shape again.

The end of my time in Nikolaev seemed to catch me unaware, so much so, that I ran out of time to catch up with you guys for a final meal and goodbye and with some other folk as well.

I must say Bill, that I was totally impressed with your school and the teaching program.  English Club is a real blast and was such an important part in me settling into the Ukraine.  My advice to anyone is that it simply takes time and consistency to form new friendships.

After I left the Ukraine I stopped into Oman for a few days to meet Sveta from Moscow. She hastily took vacation leave and paid for her flights etc., to Oman.  We have so much in common and both strongly feel that everything is heading in the right direction.   She’s met my mom and brothers via a Video Call and I will meet her parents this coming weekend via Skype.

She has applied for a visa to Australia and hopes for us to meet on 19th  December; with her returning to Moscow by the 9th  of January.  It hasn’t cost me a cent for any communication and she’s never asked me for anything other than friendship with honesty and open communication from day one.  We both feel we’ve met our best friend in the world and I’ve closed my profile from any dating site. As we say here in Oz, everything is going swimmingly)).

I will attach a few pics here of Sveta and also of our time in Oman. She’s 36 and never been married.  In reality she’s been married to her career and works ridiculously long hours and has to-date seen 86 countries in the world through travel and work.  Sveta is now ready for a sea-change in her life.

My hope Bill is that by the end of January I will own both businesses outright and have a new future with a special lady.

Due to recent changes with my Franchisee (ABC), I won’t be able to come back to the Ukraine for a period of time (i.e. say Christmas next year).   All in all, I’m happy with how thing are progressing and am really look forward to coming back to seeing you and Larissa as soon as possible.

I understand that Kelvin from New Zealand is coming back on 20th  December (subject to getting Visa Approved).  I have ceased communication with our Attorney mate from the US (ie Brendan Walsh) but now have made other great friends via Viber, Facebook and Skype.

Could you please pass on my love and regards to Oksana.

Has Larissa been able to speak to Tanya from English Club about doing English lessons?  Bill, if someone comes into the school that you both feel warrants special consideration for lessons etc., please feel free to discuss with me about some sort of sponsorship in part of full.  I don’t mind if it’s a gentleman or lady.  The “student choice” I leave with you both.

I feel it’s a small way that I can support your school whilst making a difference in someone’s life.   To be honest I can’t speak highly enough of what you do in Nikolaev and I’m privileged that I can join with you both in some way to further the good work.

Bill, I miss our chats and friendship; and I’m glad that you got to meet a normal foreigner for a change)).  Thanks for always having my back and for all your help.

Anyways, I had better finish here.  Once again thanks for everything and I look forward to more adventures with you both.

Yours sincerely,


My reply to Sam,

Hi Sam,

Thank you for your kind words. We are glad to hear you are doing well.
One question.
We are updating the PenPals Nikolaev web site. I would like to use your letter on our site. Would it be okay if I used a portion of your letter and changed your name? I can eliminate all references to you and your location. Your letter was well written and full of thoughts and ideas for any person to learn from.
We are putting more energy into this because I am preparing for the launch of our book next year in 2017. No:) I am not finished yet but, I will make sure you get a copy.
I am updating all of my articles on the PenPals website. Once I have updated every page, I will start adding new articles. Yours will be the first new article.
Thank you Sam.

Can We Help You Find Your Angel?

Find Your Angel

Can we help you find your angel? Yes, there is hope for every man searching for his other half. While every persons idea of a life partner is different, there are elements that every man needs to know. Consequently, if you decide to search in a foreign land, learn as much as possible before you begin your search. Even though Ukraine is full of honest and sincere women, there are many who think much differently.

One Size Never Fits All…

Remember, just like every society and culture, one size never fits all, as a result, it is important to set yourself apart from the individuals who assume everything. Separate the way you think from the others. Searching for true love in Ukraine is much different than what you think. Knowing as much as possible about Ukrainian women, will help increase the odds of accomplishing your goals by one thousand percent. It’s sad to meet so many men in Ukraine who have visited many times and are still alone.

It was November 2007 when I traveled to Nikolaev for the second time. Larisa and I had discussed our plans about living in Nikolaev. It was important for us to get to know each other before we found our way to California. We have been together ever since. Actually, we had never planned to stay in Nikolaev for this long. We just allowed life to show us what is important in life. Find your angel like I did.

Why Live in Nikolaev Ukraine?…

Our language school was founded in November 2008, one year after my arrival. It all started from the desire to help others and the need for income. There was another reason. With the financial crisis in America, it made little sense to go back to start a new life there. With little effort, we were able to see the opportunities here in Nikolaev. Teaching English seemed like a good idea for a number of reasons. It allowed me to study English while teaching it. For me, this is an important key to writing. More on this in our book to be released in 2017.
