Re: Should we move back to the UK?

I know how you feel: after 6 years here I have a handful of friends (none of them are Bay Area natives, all are Brits or east coasters with foreign or minority partners/parents etc).

I feel that...

Re: Moving to Florida from UK

Look into https://www.campamerica.co.uk/ and other similar organisations offering work experience opportunities in the US. You are still very young and would likely never be able to get a visa to...

Re: UK nurse wanting to go to the USA

Re: UK nurse wanting to go to the USA

What visa is your partner coming on? If it's anything other than a H visa you would likely be able to work but you'd need to be married. You might earn more as a nurse in the US but you may not be...
