Welcome to the forums!  The UK is a strange and rainy place.

In fairness, I don't think it's as rainy as people say it is haha. Like when I talk to people back home and it's raining there and I say "ha-ha! It's nice and sunny here!" they are literally shocked...Like it must be some type of freak one-off thing hahah I'm like "yes, it's dark and rainy in winter a fair amount....but outside of that it's not actually rainy all that much"

Goodness!  What was the issue last night?  Not that there isn't ALWAYS an issue somewhere!
Something,something 500 volt line touched something fire.

I would have a bit more consideration for them if they hadn't shut down the entire damn station for a month in August to fix the very area where this supposedly happened.

Welcome to the forum.  Maybe you already know this, but that picture you sent represents exactly the opposite of what it's like to live here.

Here's a picture of Waterloo station last night

There's not so many people because they've locked the doors to stop more people coming because there are no trains.  You may ask what all those people are waiting for if there are no trains?  They have no choice, like a Sim stuck in a pool without a ladder.

Half the people living here would give their right arm to be on that horse in Navada.

Yikes!   That does look like a mess...  thank goodness for deodorant.    Theres a bright side to everything I guess, at least you have public transport, despite the misery days when things are falling to pot.  I'm tired of driving.   The picture of me on the horse doesn't show how lovely that part of the world (Fallon) truly is, lol.   I'll go dog trial there, but not on my list of places to move to.   :)

Hello Dennis!   Thanks... wise words and genuinely appreciated.   I've been looking at all the options as well as conditions for visa and immigration.   It will be interesting to see what happens after Brexit.  Have been watching it closely from here, for sure.   If only that crystal economic ball was a thing, right?

I didn't mean to sound flippant in my original post, apologies if it came across that way.   I am a senior specialist/planner for a large federal land agency that's given me a  list of experience in a variety of fields.  My strongest fields are natural/renewable resources, GIS and environmental education.   I have a degree in finance (that wasn't helpful!) with coursework in ag/rangeland science and realty/lands.   I've found several position equivalencies in the UK and we occasionally do research projects with scientists from the EU as well as the UK.   So... I guess the field is "lands management", as vague as that might sound, although it isn't meant to come out like that.   :)

Already have made several trips to the UK (England, Wales but mostly Scotland) and not just to do the touristy things, but gotten some "on the ground" time in.   Its that time and the everyday people and places I've come to know that hooked me!   :)
There are definitely GIS opportunities among companies who will sponsor visas, a friend of mine worked for one for a few years in Switzerland but they first tried recruiting him to the UK. (UK salaries weren't competitive at all) Good luck with your planning and move!
