Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in life, travel and food. Hope you have a nice stay!

T-minus 1105 hours: 46 days until The Move

Hello friends!

Welcome to my first attempt at a blog. Hopefully this will eventually turn into a collection of travels, experiences, stories, photos, and food experienced during my time in (as our relocation housing agent put it) "quaint old England." I wanted to find a platform (other than Facebook or Twitter or Instagram) for sharing my life with friends and family back in the US while I am abroad and thought I might as well give the whole blogging thing a try. Up until the move, this site will also most likely simultaneously serve as a platform for me to organize my thoughts, to do lists, anxieties, and travel plans. As of right now, I have a lot to do in the next 1105 hours to prepare for The Move! 

  • Be licensed to work in the UK
  • Find a job
  • Get our visas
  • Get on Hubby's insurance
  • Figure out how to transfer my current prescriptions to the UK
  • Find someone to re-rent my US apartment
  • Formally resign from my current job
  • Cancel all of my US subscription services (I have many...I'm a sucker I know)
  • Get a UK phone plan (and phone? HOW DOES THIS WORK?!)
  • Open a UK bank account
  • Get my pupper (Stanley) all the necessary documentation to travel to the UK
  • Book PetMoves (an awesome pet relocation service that helps people like me move our pet from the US to UK without having to put our beloved pupper in cargo) http://www.pet-moves.com
  • Find housing in Bristol
  • Sell, store, or donate everything I own
  • Decide what to take to Bristol (Hubby and I are each only bringing ONE suitcase!) (though we both have very large suitcases)
  • NOT PANIC
