Where do you live?

UK

Reason why you live there?

Husband is from here, he has specialized job here.

Have you lived any other countries? Where?

No other countries, but various places in the US… North East, South East, South West, and Hawaii

How long have you been there?

A little over a year + 1 long visit

How much longer do you plan to be there?

Not sure, when I get EU citizenship we may take off for a new adventure.  We like it here, but Darling Husband has lived here all his life and is ready for something new.

How long have you been with your partner?

Just short of 2 years

Do you have kids? 

Nope.  We have some house plants though. 

Best part about living abroad? 

Living and experiencing different kinds of landscapes. 

Worst part?

Essentially losing most of my friends from the states… people tend to assume you are gone forever and it seems no matter how much effort I might put toward keeping friendships alive, they are not reciprocated.

Hehe, I do have people who suddenly contact me saying “I’m going to be in London, we should meet up!” And then they realize that not all of the UK is the London’s backyard.    That being said… 4 of my friends made it to our wedding, I met up with one friend who travels for his work, and an old friend came by for a few days during her travels.
