Right – after some years of talking about it, I am emigrating! I am moving a thousand kilometers north east, from London to Gothenburg.
None of my previous emigration plans ever worked out (mainly because I was never persistent enough and always chickened out), but this time it took all of two weeks for my idea to go from a slight possibility to a signed (sort of) and sealed (not yet) fact. I’m getting a transfer with my current job. And I’m not even close to chickening out this time.
So – two months to go as of tomorrow, and in that time I have to transform the (sort of) signed off and sealed idea into having minus one flat in London, plus one flat in Gothenburg, and the slightest clue about what to do with all my stuff.
I’m not really new to moving countries because I have done it once already (as a student from my home country to London), but somehow as a student packing two suitcases and arriving at a university abroad, it seemed like a slightly simpler deal!
