Why London?

...why Now? What happened!!?? 
You might be wondering "why?" from a couple of posts ago...

Justin had a meet and greet of sorts with an agency that recruits teachers for full time work over in London last week. It went really well and they have asked him to participate in the interviews in late May in Toronto. They fly a bunch of UK principals over here to interview the selected new teachers. Justin stands a very good chance and we have our fingers and toes crossed! We have (of course) been doing a ridiculous amount of research now about London...and are super excited! It seems (to us so far) that Switzerland or Germany are not in the cards for us this year...which sucks, but doesn't mean it is the end of the world or our dream. We still want to move to Switzerland and plan on applying every year. London looks like an AMAZING opportunity (one that never crossed our minds) and we are beyond thrilled for this chance. I guess now my patience has to last me until the end of May...sigh ;) 
The most confusing thing about our research so far....the zones! The apartment/house rents depend so much on which zone you live in! I am soooo confused about which areas are close to central London and if they are "safe". I have been looking on Gumtree London for rental places and there are a ton, but once again I am always suspicious when they are cheaper...does that mean they are not close? Not safe? 

We shall see! 


  1. I have no clue about London, but it sounds like a great opportunity!! Best wishes for you guys!!
