Default Any Brits in the San Francisco Bay Area?

Hi there,

I am moving to the San Francisco Bay Area at the end of September. I am reaaaally anxious about the move and would love it if I could find another Brit who has moved over from the UK to the bay area for some friendship, advice and support

I will be moving over with my husband. We are in our late twenties, no kids as of yet.

It would just be such a comfort to go over and already know some people

What part of the Bay Area are you moving to Annie? I live in Mountain View, we've lived here 3 years, after living 3 years in LA. We love it in this area, it's such a great place to live (although expensive.)

Give me a shout if you've got any questions, or need help with anything.

Hi Nicky, we will be starting off in Berkeley but where abouts we will end up will depend on where are jobs are I think. I really hope that we are able to get jobs quickly!

Thank you both for offering your help! I am sure I will have plenty of questions nearer the move although it is coming up quick!!! eeek!!

No jobs, are you coming across on a marriage visa then? Is your husband/fiancé from the Bay Area?

I don't know that side at all, but there are quite a few posters on here who do. If you have any questions on the Berkeley area, post in the US forum and no doubt someone will be along to answer.

Hi Nicky, Yes my husband is American but he's from Michigan so we both don't know the area at all! I am sure everything will work out though

You still need a Visa AnnieBelle to work and live here in the US but I am sure you are aware of that already!

Hey all.

My soon-to-be wife and I (big day next Saturday!) will be moving to the Bay area in October. My employer is in Santa Clara with clients all over the place, so absolutely no idea where we'll be living yet! Either way, when we get there I'm sure we'd love to meet up with some other recent arrivals!

Good luck with your moves
