The author has moved to London twice — once as a graduate student and once when her partner was offered a job. Each move posed its own challenges, and while there are other websites and forums out there to help people making the move from the US to the UK, they weren’t quite what she was looking for.

Now that she’s got some time on her hands and is getting settled in, she’s sharing what she’s learned so you can have an easier go of it.
