    I moved from The Netherlands.

    It's probably been easier to find work then I expected. I hear your part on friends. Even if you find friends they are often of the international kind, and likely to move on again after a few years.

    On the other hand, I think that the London design community has been a very welcoming home :)

    I do want to warn you about an upcoming danger; after a year or two, it could get really hard to move back because your old friends back home are basically the same, while you feel you've become a completely different person.

      Awesome to hear you have found a home in London! Thats interesting you mention about the upcoming danger and it isn't something I have thought about. What are ways in which you dealt with this/advice you could give me from your experience?
