Huge Life Changes!

The day has come - I can finally tell you my "big secret" (those of you that follow me on Twitter have seen me obsessing over not being able to say anything for a while) and I'm actually a bit nervous as I write this.

So, here goes!









That's right - we're leaving Milan for London next month!

David and I have had this idea for a really long time. Since he's a musician and I'm a writer, London is one of the best places to be - and then there's also fact that this city is magical to us. We're in love with the energy, atmosphere and vibe of London. Every time we go there, we fall in love all over again.






We first planned to move in 2010, when we still lived in my hometown of Stockholm. But as you might have learned, life rarely goes according to plan. David got some scary news: his mother was seriously ill. We chucked our plans into the bin and moved back to his hometown, Milan, where we have lived since the summer of 2010. But lately, especially since I went freelance, our London dream has been brought back to life.


So...one day...we just made up our minds and went for it. And here we are...leaving in about a month. Mind-boggling.


I can't wait to explore the tiny, tucked-away corners of the city. I can't wait to go everywhere. I can't wait to look for a place to live and countless places to work (Starbucks, you better have soy lattes because I'm coming). I can't wait to go to every museum (hey, they're free!) and see as many concerts as humanly possible. I can't wait to shop at Topshop and Oasis. I can't wait to buy a new umbrella and a pair of Hunters. I simply can't wait to be a Londoner.

    1. I know, it rains a lot! But I was raised in Sweden and we have snow on the ground from October to March, so I think I can handle most weather conditions!

  6. ma che meraviglia! Sono molto contenta per te/voi! Credo inoltre che in UK ti sarà molto più semplice portare avanti la tua transizione verso il veganismo totale. In bocca al lupo!

  11. Waou... amazing!!! It rained all year so far so hopefully now will be the sunny days left only for you ;))

    I lived there many many years (before moving to Milan) so if you need anything, just let me know. You'd have a blast, this is the best city in the whole word.

  13. In bocca al lupo Sascha!!! Secondo me ti ci troverai molto bene a Londra (se non altro, sarà molto più facile trovare ristoranti vegani...). io ci vivo da cinque anni, se ti serve qualcosa scrivimi!
