LON­DON, UNITED KING­DOM: LIZ, 25 “Save, save, save be­fore you go! And get in touch with peo­ple you know liv­ing there be­fore ar­rival as they can give a bet­ter idea on where to live, how to find work, etc.” BOLOGNA, ITALY: ME­LANIE, 25 “Be pre­pared to adapt to the dif­fer­ent way of liv­ing. Ital­ians are very laid-back but as soon as I ad­justed to it, I re­ally be­gan en­joy­ing my­self.” PARIS, FRANCE: MON­ICA, 29 “Join an In­ter­net group for ex­pats like

meetup.com, which hosts dif­fer­ent groups based on in­ter­ests, such as run­ning, art gal­leries or fash­ion, all with strangers who have one thing in com­mon – try­ing to fig­ure out life in a new place.”
