We asked expats and digital nomads what they appreciate the most about the local culture in UK. They wrote...

"The main plus for me is the NHS. I was lucky to have good health insurance in the US and was close to top-notch hospitals and doctors. But many Americans have had to live with poor health care or none.

The other thing I appreciate is good public transportation," wrote a member who made the move to Leeds, UK.
