About my Blog

Thank you for finding my blog! I’m a British Citizen who has just moved to the United States to live with my American wife. In this blog I will be giving my dry and sometimes tongue in cheek perspective on life as a Brit in the US. Every time I get asked if I’ve been to Buckingham Palace for tea or whether we still ride around on horse and carts in England I’ll share the story here first! I hope you enjoy reading my blog as much as I enjoy writing it. 🙂

  1. Bon courage for going through the American visa system. I know people who have done the same and say it was a nightmare. Best wishes to you for reuniting with your wife! I’ve always been interested in people living abroad and finding ways to call it their home – I’d like to read some of your posts.

  2. hi 🙂 found your blog through visajourney. Very interesting to read and since my husband and i are going through the same journey – totally understanding what you are writing about 😀 Thanks for writing this blog!

    Hi! Welcome to the United States!
    I finally got a chance to look at your blog and I really like it. I heard great reviews of your bog from a couple of friends of mine. Love it and you got yourself a new follower! Love the setup and your writing style.

    I just started my blog two or so weeks ago and I would love feedback and if you like it, I would love another follower! whatiliketodobysteve.wordpress.com

    Thank you,

    Hi Love your blog. It’s interesting to hear other ex pats thoughts from a young man in a new country to an old biddy like me…lol…..At the moment I am just having fun on my blog but think it may be a good idea to do the visa story from my perspective as an ex pat, it may help others who are thinking of taking a leap into the unknown…good luck with your blog and enjoy the snow…it’s one thing I really miss here as it certainly helps bring xmas together..not the same in the sun..anyway I am wittering again.

        And at the moment I wish we had snow, makes Christmas so much more magical .Funny how we all want what someone else has at some point ha ha

  5. Sounds like its going to be a very interesting blog. There are always so many aspects of trying to belong and trying to establish a ‘home’ in somewhere so far away from home. Great topic 🙂

  6. Hi, so happy to have stumbled across your blog!
    I am an English too and also from Exeter! What are the chances?!
    My Husband and I have just started the long and ominous US visa process and it has been great to be able to read about your journey here.
    We’ve been wondering recently whether I’ll be able to head over and visit and reading your experience has given me some confidence. I’ve read some horrible stories about people on VJ being put on the first flight home as border control weren’t satisfied…..
    Looking forward to your future posts (I completely agree that the US needs Boxing Day by the way!)

    1. I’m glad that you found my blog, so random that you are from Exeter too! I miss Devon already. Good luck with the Visa process, I hope its a smooth ride for you and not too lengthy. If you need any advice at any point I’d be happy to help 🙂

  7. Dream it Alive

    It’s all about each and every day, and what life has to offer you at any given moment! I will certainly be following your blog as though I was born and raised here in the United States. I moved just over a year ago to the North East Region (NYC) to be with my fiancee. It’s a big difference compared to Colorado. Warm Wishes to you and your wife.

    1. That must be a big change, hope you are settling in well in NYC! I haven’t been there since I moved to the US so when I do go there’s probably going to be a blog post to follow 🙂

  8. Just stumbled across your blog and have enjoyed reading it. As Brits now living in Toronto we’re very jealous of that chocolate stash!

    I’m currently planning a US road trip in the summer starting in Boston so will look forward to delving deeper into your blog for inspiration 🙂


    1. I’m glad you liked my blog. I’m thinking of visiting Canada this summer so I’ve followed you for inspiration too! I’ve posted a lot about awesome places in New England in the past, hope you find some ideas for your trip. 🙂

    Hello again my friend.

    I nominated you for a Liebster Award. You can see your nomination on my site here:


    You can read about it when you have time. You can even accept your award by nominating your own favorite blogs and answering the deep, dark, probing personal questions you’ll see on the site. It goes without saying, you don’t have to do a doggone thing and just enjoy being that cool.

    Appreciate your stuff, my friend. Ciao!

  10. Hey,

    Its always exciting to see Britishers in the US. People go nuts as you already have said they start asking way too many questions. But I like British English, that’s what I use when I speak and write.

    PS – You have got a great blog.

  12. Hi mate, greetings from the motherland! I’m glad I stumbled upon this blog, and am currently in the K1 visa process myself. I’m trying to get the hang of the blog stuff and I’m looking forward to reading your posts.

    If you’re passing by Kansas, say hi to my future home for me!
