I've decided to move!

Hello everyone!

I'm Emma, I recently fell in love with a Swedish guy and have decided to relocate so that we don't have to travel so much to see each other. I had contemplated moving abroad for several years (I was originally thinking Germany because I liked the culture) but this has pretty much decided it for me. I've done a lot of reading but there's a lot to absorb, so I'm here hoping that some of you could give me some advice on the best way to instigate a change as big as this, and if there's anything I should look out for.

My partner is very supportive and I'm so lucky to have him there to help me.

I can't wait to get chatting to people here, looking forward to meeting you!

Em
