guest post: Megan (Scotland)

Hi Ladies!
Today, the gorgeous Megan will be guest posting for me.
Megan and I go way back.
To like, second grade.
In fact, if it weren't for Megan, I probably never would have started blogging.
I remember when she started her blog about preparing to move to England,
and I was like,
that bitch, I am so jealous.
jk...sorta.
I confess- I was really jealous she was moving to England.

Anyway, naturally I was going to copy her and start blogging,
but, I didn't understand how to set it up,
and just read her blog instead.
Now, years later, here I am.

So, thank you, Megan,
for inspiring me,
AND, for still being my friend even though you knew me during all my humiliating phases.

---

Hi Jessica's friends!
(i call her Jessica because I grew up with her and that's how I knew her)
like, literally grew up with her..
I'm talking no boobs, dicki overalls, pre-kissed, lack of straightening irons phases of life
through to period having, shaved legs, boyfriends, blogging, and heels phase.
 So if you ever want the inside scoop on her,
feel free to ask me. ;)
I digress.
Jess asked me to write about my experience living abroad,
since she is about to join me on this side of the pond
(thank god)
For those that don't know,
I am Megan and I write the blog "Across The Pond"
which follows my awkward journey as a Southern California American expat living in the UK
(specifically Scotland)
Where do I even begin?
Living abroad..
I am probably going to have to bullet point this ish so it doesn't get too crazy.
Likes
1. cheap easy travel (like 20 pounds for a round trip flight from the UK to Italy..granted its on an airline that you think might implode upon landing..but still..20 pounds..)
2. men with accents (my boyfriend is Irish..like real Irish..not "I'm American but my great great great grandfather was born in Ireland"..he is also 6'4. nuff said.)
3. slow paced life
4. real holiday/vacation time
5. low cost of living (some might be a bit surprised by this..but when you take out our American-have it all- mentality..you really don't need much to get by out here)
6. Spring flowers. they win on the flower front. hands down.
7. Free health care (I have experienced both the pros and cons of this system..but for me..its been more of a pro experience and i have had to have some more serious medical procedures done here, so i know what I'm talkn about)
8. children with accents. i die.
9. castles.
dislikes:
1. the weather (dear god, 6 months of winters really makes your insides weep..and makes you want to punch walls)
2. accents ( I know i have this as a like too..but where i am now, the accents are horrible..and i know they are speaking "English" but I'm pretty sure they arnt..)
3. summer. because it doesn't exist and they think it does. I'm sorry, a week of 60 degree weather does not count as summer
4. lack of freaking clothes dryers and dishwashers in most/almost all apartments/flats.
5. lack of garbage disposals
6. lack of sunlight (in winter the sun sets at 3pm and rises at 10am)
7. public transportation. I've been here 2 years. i still despise it.
8. walking.everywhere.
9. the food. this is specific to the UK. its really just awful.
i should of maybe ended on the likes list..
Northern Ireland
Portugal
Scotland
Scotland
Northern Ireland
Scotland
Scotland
The Highlands, Scotland
Loch Lomond, Scotland

I'm with ya on the lack of dryers and dish washers! I'm starting to feel like it's not just a European thing, but more of an anywhere in the world outside of the US thing, and I don't like it one bit!

I'm having flashbacks to my time in Europe with the likes & dislikes hehe. I can't wait to hear about yalls fun times together once you get over across the pond with Megan!

Mo (New on U) said...

We've already talked about how I totally feel you on the no dryer thing, but the Glaswegian accent?? Come on! My friend came to visit me and SWORE up and down that the people next to us on the bus were NOT speaking English. And they totally were. Some form of it anyway. It definitely takes accents to the extreme

Catherine said...

Awesome. I love Megan. Congratulations on officially landing in Germany! Hope everything goes swimmingly! Can't wait to hear about all your adventures.

Hey - great post!! I am so glad that Bailey got us to do this whole guest thing because I get introduced to some awesome new people!!! So glad you are enjoying my home country....but you don't like the food??? Not even Sunday roast dinners with yorkshire puddings?? Apple Crumble?? If I was still living there you would be invited to my family home and we would change this "dislike" into a "love love love"!!!!

Mimi said...

aaahhh, it's such a gorgeous place! and i loved reading about all the pros and cons of living in the uk. :)

<3, Mimi
