From London to São Paulo: The Book is on the Table

Hi, I'm Andy and I'm originally from London, UK where I worked as a social worker. In February 2012 I moved to São Paulo, Brazil with my wife and I'm blogging about adjusting to life here. I'm getting used to it. Gradually....
1. Why did you move abroad?
It was a move that we had planned for while. I met my wife (who is from São Paulo) when I first went travelling around South America in 2007/08 and then she moved to the UK in 2009. However, she deferred her degree to do so and I always promised that we'd come back eventually so she could finish it.
Then, in February my job finished due to government cuts in the UK and it seemed the right time to go, especially as the the Brazilian university term starts in February. It all worked out quite nicely in the end!
