So my husband has been offered an amazing job opportunity in London and we have decided to go for it and make the big move! I am at a point in my career (I’m a substitute teacher) where I can walk away and not suffer too much career-wise, and this job would be great for him and our future.
We’re so excited, but the thing is, neither of us have ever been to London so I’m looking for any insider tips or advice from UK bees specifically as well as anyone who has been (or even better, anyone who has lived as an ex-pat in the UK!). There is only so much I can learn from wikipedia and travel guides, plus it’s not like we’re exactly going to be tourists!
What I know so far: We will be moving to the Bloomsbury neighborhood. I am hoping to find a teaching job before we arrive, which will probably be in August sometime, has anyone taught in the UK before? I’m Canadian so my teaching degree is definitely applicable there. We will probably stay for a year or so and would love to travel as sightsee as much as possible in Europe and the UK, mostly on weekends.
So, help! Looking for any experiences or info you would like to share!
