I'm am American who has the good fortune to live in the Greater London area -- and came here to work and travel. The list of locations includes places I've visited, since moving to the UK early in 2005.
I am a relaxed traveller, and don't expect any place to adapt to me, but find the adaptation of living in a country so different from my own, challenging. (Despite outward appearance and a similar language, England and the west coast of the US, where I've lived most of my life, are very different socially and culturally.) This opportunity to live near the European continent is exciting as well, and I plan to take advantage of it as best I'm able.
