Dear Readers,

Nearly one year ago I wrote about my fear of the next big step following graduation—starting over with a new job and outlook on life. I wrote of my journey from small town Canada (Alliston, Ontario, population: 6,000) to London, Ontario (350,000) and eventually to Toronto (2,500,000).

I questioned what bigger—and thus better—city I’d finally find my way to. In the summer a sudden inexplicable urge to move to London, England (population: 7,500,000) seized me. So, completely spontaneously and in a manner that railed against my character, I sold off most of my things, packed up whatever remained, said my goodbyes and boarded a plane to a country I’d never even visited.

And now I’m here, writing about my year-long experiment (or possibly longer or shorter) for the benefit of my mates in England and my friends and family back home.

With Love,

Maiya xx

    Awesome Maiya. I did exactly the same thing in 2008. To London as well. It’s not easy but it’s awesome. Good luck and all the best.
