Welcome to our blog!
We decided to start this page as a way of documenting our lives following a move across the pond to the United States, just two young Brits trying to make it in the big wide world.
Before coming to the States we were still living at home with our parents in England so this was a big step for us. Not only were we moving out but we chose to move 5000 odd miles across the Atlantic Ocean to California (I mean, who does that, right?!)
The move happened pretty fast, we found out we were going in June/July and flew out on October 1st. I quit my job, we sold our cars and packed up our 6 suitcases with all our belongings and off we went to start a new life!
Upon arrival in San Francisco we collected our hire car and drove to our new city. It was so surreal. Seeing the yellow school buses, driving on the other side of the car, on the other side of the road, and on a 6 lane freeway in rush hour traffic! It was pretty scary but so exciting at the same time. Nevertheless, we made it to our destination in one piece and were ready for the next phase of our journey… APARTMENT HUNTING!
