I first announced last January that I was moving to London to further my blogging career and finally made the big move at the beginning of February 2015. It’s not an easy process and was super overwhelming at times so I thought I would share my experiences here and some tips I learned along the way that might help you in adjusting to London life. These tips can be applied to most big city moves and please do let me know in the comments if you found them useful.
Do your Research
I asked around my company for any contacts living in London so I could try and nail down a suitable area to live in. This helped to narrow down the options as, believe me, it’s quite daunting when you start hearing about zones, North London V. South London and the likes. It really helped me having some recommended options first and then I used my main base for work as a guide to figure out what tube line (London Underground transport) I would be travelling on the most. Once you settle on a commute time and tube line everything else will fall into place.
