Our Adventure in Birmingham, England

We got ourselves two year working visas and we moved to Birmingham, England March 2015-2017. In this post we share our monthly updates on living in England, and all of our posts in Birmingham.

One of the unique attractions of Birmingham is walking along the canals. People don't often realise that Birmingham has more canals than Venice. It's fun to take a walk along the canals and see the boats and businesses along the canal side. Check it out and make sure to visit the canals next time you're in Birmingham.

  3. It's a bold move. Not everyone can just up root and go to a different country and choose to live there for 2 years. I think it's really nice that you shared these adventures with us. It looks like Birmingham is an awesome place!

  5. Looks like fun! I lived in Scotland for a year for school, but wasn't able to travel much. Next trip out there, I'll have to make a stop here!

    1. Birmingham used to be an industrial city. They used all the canals for transporting goods.

  8. I didn't know about the canals! That's really cool! I would love to visit Birmingham next time that I am in England. I am so glad that you found such a huge vegan scene there, I think that's what I would be most afraid of going somewhere I didn't know.
