tales of an Idaho transplant in the UK

Although I’m an Idaho native, I frequently lived overseas while growing up—in France, Germany, and Switzerland—and got a taste for that life. While I love to travel, I find that experience somewhat disappointing, since it can be difficult to experience the “real” culture of the place you’re visiting in just a few days or weeks. Instead, I prefer to live abroad from time to time.

So while I’m living in England to complete a doctoral degree, I will be blogging about my experiences. My hope is that this will help others who are interested in living abroad but might be nervous about how to do it or unsure of what to expect—as well as inspiring more people (especially Americans) to travel Europe on the cheap.
