Six Months in Bristol

13 March 2014

"I love Bristol because it knows who it is.
It's cool and cosmopolitan and it doesn't compete with other cities.
Bristol is happy dancing to the beat of its own drum."
- Stephen Merchant

Today marks my six month anniversary in Bristol!
When I decided to move to England, I originally wanted to move to London. I had lived in London for six weeks in 2011 and loved it. But I decided to pick Bristol, a city I had never visited before, because of its amazing university and lower cost of living.
I had no idea what I was in for.

Bristol is fun, exciting, beautiful, and crazy.
Bristol can feel like both a big city or a small town, depending on where you go.
The people are friendly and more than welcoming to an expat like myself.

So here's to the past six months.
And falling in love with this amazing city.
