    As a Brit who was always determined to leave, I find it interesting that other people want to move there. It’s interesting to see it from the other side! As for me, I am always thinking about places in terms of whether I would live there or not. Medellin, Colombia is currently my favourite city of choice!

      Sometimes it’s harder to appreciate where your from as you take if for granted! As a Canadian in the UK the history that surrounds me everyday amazes me coming from such a young country.  And the Brits always seemed so much cooler as well.  I think that based on the weather right now Medellin might win me over right now though! 😉

    Enjoyed reading your post. I moved to England under the working holiday visa back in October but returned home in January as I couldn’t find employment. Still regreting that decision as I didn’t realize how much I would miss living in the UK. I miss the countryside, ease of public transportation, history, array of activities to do, my list could continue…I even miss the accents! Originally from NL I felt more at home in the UK than I ever did living in Alberta. So, I guess at first I didn’t succeed either….maybe someday I get a second chance:)

      Hi Abby, 
      I can imagine how Alberta was a culture shock from NL, I lived in Vancouver and thought I didn’t like it because it was a big city, however I love living in London so that theory went out the window, so I understand where you are coming from.

      It’s a shame it didn’t work out, December is usually a write of for job hunting so I’m sure that made things harder finding work, and things have changed a lot since I arrived in 2007 and sometimes the funds to keep on do run out, especially in London on the pound, this Canadian $ don’t last long!  

      I hope you do get a second chance, and be sure to come over during the spring/summer when the weather is less dreary 🙂
