Moving to the UK – it’s further than you think


The title of this blogpost will surely, one day, be the title of a book. I will write of how I took the 300 (ish) mile journey from Kildare, Ireland to Newport, South Wales - only to find that I might as well have come from the centre of a densely populated (but only by trees and …
