Lena Home Is Here

Hi, I’m Lena, welcome to my life in the UK! I moved to Cambridge in 2015 and I’m sharing my experiences of moving and living abroad on this blog.

Contrary to what we daily read in newspapers, not everything in this country is about Brexit. Hard to believe, I know! So what you will find on this blog is a selection of amazing places to visit in the UK, tips on how to build a life in England as an expat and a variety of photos starring picturesque Cambridge.

If you’re thinking about moving to England or already live as an expat in the UK this is the place to find some insider tips from someone who has been through it all and is still enjoying it!

This is actually not the first time I’ve lived abroad. After finishing school I spent a year in southern France, but apart from that I have lived all my life in Germany.

My website started as a wedding blog back in 2015. When I moved to Cambridge it became some sort of online journal about living abroad that I was mainly writing to keep family and friends up to date. I didn’t have a clear vision for my blog but I recently decided to take this blogging business a bit more seriously. Let’s see where it goes!

If I’m not writing for my blog you will probably find me in one of the Cambridge Colleges with a camera around my neck, trying to improve my photography skills. I might be accompanied by my Instagram husband Nis who is also the reason why I moved here as he is a PhD student at the University of Cambridge. I’m glad he took me here!

If you’d like to stay up to date with my adventures in the UK make sure to sign up to my email list to receive all new posts straight into your inbox.

Thanks for stopping by and feel free to also connect with me on Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest.

Lena

    Hey, etwas sehr verspätet alles Gute und Gottes Segen zu eurer Hochzeit. Als Nis noch klein war habe ich oft auf ihn aufgepasst. Na, Niss… Klingelt es?
