You have just landed in London to begin your big adventure. Some people think it may be difficult to be living in London without knowing anyone, but the remarkable thing about moving here is that it is a city of travelers. Much of the population of London is made up of people from other countries. There is so much opportunity to get out and meet people; you won’t feel alone for long. London is a busy city, but you will soon learn that it is one of the most community driven cities in the world. You can find anything and everything in London. It is filled with activities, clubs, and classes, ranging from the usual hobbies to the downright ridiculous. The unique structure of the suburbs has a lot to do with the community based activities that can be found in every local town hall and community centre. Getting involved with your community is one of the best ways of getting out of your new apartment and meeting people You might be tempted to stay within your own circle of expatriates, but that can also lead to you missing out on other opportunities. By all means, contact a local group of Americans or Canadians, as a starting point, but then you need to spread your wings and really immerse yourself in the local life style. Becoming a true Londoner is a process. Get out there, join a society, and take a class in something that you’d never have considered doing. Involve yourself in community outreach and neighborhood activities. The exciting thing about living here is the amount of neighborhood activities there are. No matter which suburb you are living in, you’ll find a way of becoming a part of that neighborhood. The biggest thing that worries couples about moving here is when one of the couple has a new job and the other doesn’t. It can be easy to sink into loneliness and homesickness, and the only way to feel better is to open your front door and step out into the town, the city that is your new home.
