A new chapter: we’re moving to london

After many months of debate, packing up, selling our flat and moving into temporary digs, plus lots of paperwork and planning we are finally able to say we’re moving to London!

Wes and I have always loved the city – in fact it’s where we first met – and have decided to move for a few years to build our careers and make the most of its proximity to great travel adventures (hello Scandanavia)

So come May 2017, we will be leaving to start a very exciting new chapter. I hope you’ll still follow tohaveandtofold.com in its new capacity as a London based website! I will have heaps of new content to share from what to pack when moving countries (a daunting task ahead!) to 7 ways to make your rental home personal

 In celebration, here are a few of the many, many things we’ve loved and are looking forward to most – from restaurants to walking tours and pop-up stores. These images are taken from our recce of the city in 2015.
