Hey! Welcome to my little slice of the internet. My name is Candace and I’m a 23-year-old expat living abroad since 2016, hopelessly in love with London, travel, and combining my life with the two. But let me start from the beginning.
It was 2015 and when college time came around and I couldn’t see myself staying in the U.S. I had always loved British culture, movies, tv shows (and accents) but never pictured myself actually living there.
Anyways after a few months of constant frustration (mixed with a dash of existential crisis), I caught my eye on a ‘Now This’ video about studying for free in Germany, which led me to look at studying and living in Europe. But, I caught my eyes on London and haven’t looked back since.
Realizing travel could in fact coexist alongside my (and many others) goals, career, education or even a business birthed my podcast, Abroad & Co., and led to a stint in China…which left me stuck in Thailand for six months—but that’s another story for another day.
With no plans to leave London—I’m constantly reinventing myself here, discovering something new every day, and hopefully helping you do the same.
From purposely getting lost to discover hidden streets or planning out my entire day around trying a new cafe (I do love my coffee), I’m determined to never let the magic of this city get lost on me.
Whether you’re in London for a spell or the long haul, I hope my blog inspires you to explore this amazing city (and beyond), take a chance on your dreams, and of course, live your best London life.
