aussie expats in london

We’re Sarah and Cooper, two Aussies who are part of the digital nomad and expat community in London. Our vision is that we may inspire you to travel and live abroad. We love exploring the world an sharing our experiences. From working as part of a digital nomad community in places like London or Vancouver, to discovering the very best creative experiences in Europe or Australia, we hope you’ll find our advice, stories and experience helpful.  

It’s a truly unique thing to live and travel abroad while working as a digital nomad. One day you’re dazzled by a fresh new adventure, the next you’re figuring out your budget and accommodation for the weeks ahead. But, the business of location independence is a freeing one. If you’re thinking about it, stop that. Just go. Can we help? Let us know.
