Very exciting news here at Anglotopia, we now have an American Ex-pat blogger based in London! Kat Martin, a former student turned lawyer in Britain has agreed to write a weekly post for us on Tuesdays telling us all about her life and adventures living in London.
I’ll get out of the way and let Kat tell her story:
I came to London for three months in 2003 to work in Parliament and attend the London School of Economics through my American uni. I’d always been a wanna be Francophile, not Anglophile, but I met an Englishman during that time and moved back in 2005 to live with him and attend UK law school. Four years later, the relationship with the guy is no longer, but I’ve fallen hard for London and am training to be an English lawyer at a firm in the Square Mile. I studied politics and journalism at university in Boston and am from Portland, Maine originally. In my late 20s, I’m single and trying embrace the English way of life–baking scones, gardening, and walking holidays–without losing my American charm!
Let’s give Kat a big Anglotopia welcome!
