Experiencing a new country’s cuisine is one of the great joys of expat life. I spent months sampling curries, pies, and crisps after moving to England from the US. But once the novelty of eating scones and tikka masala wore off, I found myself wondering where to buy American food in the UK.
Most Americans in the UK don’t expect there to be a language barrier with the locals. It is an English-speaking country, after all. But there are more differences between British vs American words and slang than you might realize.
With global working on the rise, more and more people are packing up and living abroad. But whether you’re a recent grad moving out of the US or someone moving overseas after 30, you’ll soon be faced with an identity crisis: deciding to call yourself an expat vs immigrant vs digital nomad.
2021 brought a major overhaul to the UK immigration system. Whether you agree or disagree with the new points-based system, one change hugely benefits international workers: switching from Tier 2 ICT to a Skilled Worker visa is now possible.
Worried you’re too old to live abroad? Moving overseas after 30 was the best decision of my life–and it might be yours, too.
With remote working and digital nomadism on the rise, there’s a good chance someone in your life will be moving abroad soon. While “going away presents” are nothing new, it’s challenging to come up with gift ideas for someone moving to another country.
Moving to England from the US was the greatest decision of my life. But it was not without its challenges.
