Hello - newb here to prowl the boards and gain insight to life in the UK and visa process in general. Husband and I have been long-distance marriage for over three years now. We are still trying the US immigration route, but it's not looking promising. Stupid boyhood error over 20 years ago has been the hangup.

We are now exploring me moving to UK. Husband has been carer for parents, but they are doing well and don't need the assistance any longer. He starts new job this week. The idea of moving to the UK freaks me out a bit, but just because of the change and difference in daily life.

I look forward to learning from everyone here.

Hi Aislyn... I know you've been over here to visit several times, but just wondering what you think will freak you out about living here?  :)
