Carolyn Dickson always knew she’d live abroad one day. And after a trip to the UK with her husband in 2013, she knew she wanted to live in the UK.
But it took her and her husband about 5 years to realize their plans.
They managed to make the leap in 2018 when the stars aligned (that is, one of them had gainful employment there) and they moved to Newcastle in Northern UK. And though they love where they live, this is a tale of not-so-soft landings, and every Canadian’s greatest fear: being mistaken for an American.
