So many Kiwis move to London.
Like SOOOOOOOOOO many.
There’s actually over 90,000 Kiwis registered as living in the UK – and based on the fact I run out of fingers and toes when counting people I know in London, I’d say like 75% of that 90k, live in London.
(Disclaimer, total assumption)
I think the whole ‘move to London’ thing is kind of ingrained into kiwi’s as something they should do in life, before settling down in NZ.
I haven’t done it, I moved to Spain instead.
But I like London a lot, and with so many Kiwis over there already, I know it would be super easy to move over and find my feet – so maybe I will?
But at the moment I’m doing the whole ‘I-might-buy-a-house-actually-wait-I-live-in-Auckland-FML-let-me-just-work-for-100-more-years-to-save-a-deposit-first’ thing, so the closest I’m getting to it, is reading the blogs of my favourite Kiwi Bloggers in London.
All based in London, these are some of my favourite Kiwi Expat Bloggers, each with a unique look on London (and Europe) and are must-reads for all Kiwis in London:
- Around the world in 80 pairs of shoes

- Big World, Small Me

If you’re a Kiwi moving to London, you should definetly bookmark these now!
I’m sure there’s others too! Let me know if there’s any other Expat Bloggers you like to follow.
