Moving is a harrowing experience in its own right but when it comes to moving to a new city in a new country the task stats to seem far more gargantuan than packing up your old kit bag and moving to a new suburb. Moving to London is no different but it doesn’t have to be as frightening and mammoth as it sounds.
If you’re immigrating to London there are a few things you should take into consideration when planning your move. If you’re from a sunny Southern Hemisphere country it will be a little difficult to adjust to the weather at first. London weather is not very predictable but it thankfully does get warmer than many other parts of Britain in summer. Between the winter months of November and February below zero temperatures are not uncommon and it is very wet and windy. The summer and spring months are relatively temperate but it does rain year round. When packing for your move it is important to take the weather and the time of year you will be arriving into consideration. Just because you’re coming from the sunny beaches of Australia doesn’t mean your not going to be stepping into snow, so make sure you have adequate warm clothing and protective gear before you go.
The Public Transportation System
London has one of the greatest public transport systems in the world; the system is so refined that owning a car is unnecessary. There are several forms… Continue reading
(Note: This article was written slightly before the 2004 election; however, its thesis on how the Dems. lost the heartland–and why they continue to fumble the ball–bespeaks of a sea change that continues to sweep the American political landscape. Yet, Dean, et al, run down to the beach and think that last tsunami was it–not knowing they come in successive intervals, are stronger than the last one, and are not designed for your viewing pleasure!)
Liberal Democrats don’t get it. America’s “book ends” don’t get it. Kerry’s on a boat somewhere and will wait until next week and film it. Barbara Streisand has never even seen it and wouldn’t know it if it were starring her right in the face. George Soros is scared to death of it; while, MoveOn.org knows it’s coming right at them–but, alas, Thomas Frank, allegedly, a recent convert from it, really can’t figure it out either–though try he may. Thomas sees and attempts to analyze it in “What’s the Matter with Kansas: How Conservatives Won the Heart of America,” but discovers “a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma.”
Now, I’m not saying that I really see it all either–however, since East Coast transplant Frank, from affluent Johnson County near Kansas City, KS tried to figure it out–why can’t I give it a shot, since my ancestors who hail from the heartland are the victims of his analysis; and, besides, I’ve been transplanted to the Left Coast? Furthermore, I bear strong… Continue reading
