London Expat Living: A Look at TV in the UK

Christian steps in today to give his thoughts on London Expat living – particularly the TV situation! I’m constantly being asked, either at work or by family and friends, if I’ve seen the latest episode of something – or if I’ve started watching some cool new series.  It’s important – not only for entertainment – but because it can help you stay in-sync with events back home.  For example, I get my US political news from John...

Top 5 Go-To London Expat Tech Essentials

I’m always on the grid – almost to a fault! Personally, I think it’s easier than ever to choose the expat life, at least when it comes to communication back home. Expats now can video call, fly home or even order gift for loved ones abroad in a blink of an eye. It’s fantastic. It’s made adventuring and relocating all the easier. Here’s what I use to keep in touch and work from almost any locale. Lenovo Yoga Laptop   My...

A Night Out in Clapham South: The Avalon

There’s nothing I can’t stand more than being stuck in the house on a rainy or overcast day as a London expat. It sets the mood for the week on how I feel and how productive I can be (read: not at all). When there’s any excuse to escape and do something out of the routine on a weekday, I’m all about it. A perk about living in a busy part of South London is the plethora of choices for places to eat. I can practically feel like I’m...

Supporting Ethical Brands in the UK: The Decathlon Scavenger Hunt

In 24 hours I was leaving to try skiing for the first time in the Alps. All my gear was in the states and I was woefully unprepared for the conditions that ay head of me in Chamonix, France. Friends in London had told me to go straight to Decathlon – I could find everything from ski jackets and thermals to gloves, hats and even sunblock there. Off I went and for under 100 pounds (crazy!) I had everything I needed for the big winter...

Time for a #TasteofCatalonia!

My awareness of wine is dismal. Although it’s slightly improved over the last decade (mostly because my budget helps me avoid the hooch) I still am stupidly new at various blends and qualities. In fact, last time I was in the Catalonia region of Spain, my then-boyfriend-now-husband and I only visited the Freixenet cava factory.
