Moving to a new city can be pretty scary. Especially when you don’t know a solitary soul. I started by going to a church that was recommended to me by a friend of my mum’s.
To the surprise of people who know me, I’m actually pretty shy and don’t like to be in a situation where I have no one to talk to, so this was a big thing for me to do.
I remember sitting in my seat after the service people watching, something I love doing, and a lady came up and introduced herself to me. Little did I know at that time this lady was going to become one of my best friends pretty quickly. We got chatting and met up for coffee and instantly clicked.
We set up a weekly series night where I introduced her to the joys of Downton Abbey. Our friendship really blossomed from these evenings. It then moved on to spontaneous days to Cheddar gorge, gearing up with goggles and masks to upscale furniture and days in the park or heading to the beach randomly.
From there, I met more and more amazing people and got into my first job here in Bath and that’s when I started to settled into my new home ❤️
