Preparing To Move!

Having visited London years previously and loving every moment of it, I made the decision to move to the UK at the beginning of 2016. I have been living in Brisbane, Australia for most of my life and completed all my education here and as a consequence worked for the majority of the universities based in Brisbane. I felt like it was time to move to better indulge my passion for travel but also open up different job opportunities. After making the decision to move I meet my current partner Glen – who is English, lives in Brisbane and loves it here – however, he decided to follow me to the UK – much to his parents’ joy!

Having made the decision – then came the organisation and paperwork! The main things we needed to do were:

  1. Organising a visa
  2. Shipping our possessions
  3. Finalising administrative matters and general adulting
  4. Organising the fur children

Each of these issues are going to be dealt with in separate posts, as they start to get a bit lengthy.

Finally, a bit about us – I am currently undertaking my PhD at the TC Beirne School of Law, The University of Queensland. My education background is law and criminology. When we move I will be doing online work and looking for more permanent academic work. My partner Glen, is a graphic designer and illustrator. He is going to focus on his freelance work.
