Advice Thread: Living in England.

Hey all,

Two weeks from today I will be leaving on a jet plane to begin a new chapter in jolly ol' England.

Just looking for a few words of wisdom regarding settling/fitting in, saving money, and places to check out!

I will be living in Nottingham for the first while, so except for touristy type tips, don't need to know too much about London.

I know that there are a few people who live there, or have lived there, so any advice would be greatly appreciated!

thanks much!

Dan

They call elevators "lifts" and fries "chips". Also, they are "trousers" and not pants. That's enough to get you started.

p.s. congrats on the big move!

i hope you have already been "saving money" or have a good position there as it is not cheap. i have friends who have lived there and an ex who IS there and they have all said the same.

Give it about 10 years before you learn your neighbours' names. :D The English themselves joke about this. Enjoy the lively and dynamic practice of journalism there. And in Nottm, enjoy your bitter if so inclined … you will miss it when you leave. At least I did when I left Leeds.

make a trip to the Lakes District in the summer. It isn't too far from Nottingham and everyone I know who has been there loved it. (renting cars is pretty inexpensive, although gas isn't)

Also do not convert the cost of things to CAD.

ahaha @ whingeing(there was relentless whingeing in the office in Honduras last year)

This "Lake District" sounds intriguing.

to jus me: thanks for the link! It has turned out to be extremely entertaining, with posts like "blow job for a tenner" and "18yr old escort seeking older men" in between the flat listings and get rich quick schemes. Capital!

nottingham is fun! go to Yate's Pub and Wine Lodge (i worked there part time when i lived there so long ago!) The city square is busting with pubs so a pub crawl there will be fun. Go to "The ole Trip to Jerusalem" the oldest pub in England carved from the side of the hill/cave that is linked with secret tunnels to Nottingham Castle over it. The crusaders would stop and have drinkies there on the way to plunder in the name of god! They still have the old cast iron metal games (such as ring suspended on a chain from the ceiling that you swing over to a peg in the wall) this can get a bit dangerous to play when everyone is pissed up. When we were there, my friend's grandmother almost got the metal ring through her noodle. Nottingham Castle looks and feels more like a grand manor then an actual castle but it is a cool day trip. I was there a long time ago so other then the pubs and castle i have no idea!

they have a place called the forest that is a public park where you can play ultimate, or picnic.

enjoy Dan! you'll love it!
