I have lived in the US for many years with visits back to the UK in between. I am a Montessori teacher and came out here when I was 23 on a work visa, married, went back for 18 months came back here (Texas) for 12 years and then back to the UK for 3 and back again this last year. I have pinponged across the ocean a few times (as it is called in the expat community). I am British at heart, have never settled in the US and will most likely return for good this next year. It was all exciting to move when I was younger but roots, family and feels right is what is important to me now. After being in the UK for 3 years, returning here has been harder this time around and I miss the UK more.
