BritBound – How to Move to London with Ease

BritBound – How to Move to London with Ease

What on earth is BritBound? I hear you say It’s probably the single biggest thing that made my time in London best in my life. I was pretty nervous and scared about moving to the other side of the world by myself; but BritBound made it a breeze! BritBound is a relocation company based in London. They help Kiwis, Aussies, Canadians and more to move to the UK on their Working Holiday and Ancestry visas (to name a few). They…

How I’ve been able to travel the world

How I’ve been able to travel the world

Three words – Working holiday visas! These magnificent little things are the reason I’ve been able to do the travelling I have. I am so, so lucky I live in a country that allows me to work in so many different places around the world. 42 countries in fact! That is A LOT considering a Chinese girl I met at the airport in Kiev while waiting for our entry visas said she could only get 2! And that was only because…

Behind the highlights: When shit goes wrong

Behind the highlights: When shit goes wrong

Endless adventures and travels, engagements and weddings, houses bought, babies born, ‘oh my god their life is so happy and perfect!’ Often when we see someone’s Instagram or Facebook, we can be forgiven for being a little envious of their seemingly perfect lives. We don’t often see behind the scenes, when things aren’t so peachy. Of course things go wrong, every now and then, for all of us. If we don’t have an actual conversation with someone we don’t know…

My 10,000 hours starts now

The concept of 10,000 hours resonated with me mainly because I’m starting my blog and I want to be good at it, but also because I turned 30 this year. As a friend who also turned 30 (hi Sarah!) was saying recently, we’ve still got 35 years of working life in front of us before we can retire. So we might as well do something we want to do. Not just waste our time fart-arsing around forever. I’ve also reached…

My move to London – Part 2

My move to London – Part 2

Livin’ the dream So I found my dream flat (despite the fact our shower was broken and we had to have baths every day for a month or two, and then when we got it got fixed it gave us electric shocks if we touched the metal bits, but still it was our dream flat!) I was living with great ladies, close to The City, close to transport, only a 20 minute journey to work when some of my poor…

My move to London – Part 1

My move to London – Part 1

I tell ya, that feeling I had on the plane coming into Heathrow when I moved to London by myself at 26, was one part terror ‘OH MY GOD what have I DONE?!’ and one part euphoria ‘OH MY GOD look what I’ve DONE!!’ (Insert ‘jet-lagged & bloodshot’ smiley face here). I may have had a rogue tear escaping down my face while looking out at the grey London sky and the endless rows of depressing brown houses which I…
