That moment when I realised London was my home

It took a chance encounter with a barfly and his dog at the pub down the road for this Aussie expat to discover he was a London local.

It’s easy for an Aussie expat to pick up a London accent, innit

But don’t just think the expat affliction of acquiring an English accent is necessarily about contracting posh, clipped tones and a habit of saying yo-gurt, instead of yogurt.

London chills your charity giving heart. Travellers and chuggers, beware!

To all you charity chuggers out there, It’s nothing you have done wrong. It is not you, it’s me… and it was London.
