Catch up with Falkirk folk in far flung places
WHERE ARE YOU FROM ORIGINALLY? Bonnybridge
WHERE ARE YOU NOW? London Town
WHY ARE YOU THERE? Was intrigued by the Big Smoke from early on and wanted to know what was so good about it.
WHAT DO YOU DO? I work in regional advertising for a company called RAM Vision.
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN THERE? Away from home for five years but London for two-and-a-half years.
FAMILY? My London family are all new friends I’ve made down here!
WHAT DO YOU LIKE MOST ABOUT WHERE YOU ARE NOW? Opportunities for work, the gigs, festivals, random nights out, standard after-work drinks on school nights, shopping and people I have met from all over the world! Camden Town, food choices, South Bank in summer, Soho, East London and the markets.
ANYTHING YOU DON’T LIKE? Rent and drink prices. Also don’t expect a friendly face on the tubes.
BIGGEST DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THERE AND HERE? Sometimes too much going on and difficult to decide what to do!
WHAT DO YOU MISS MOST FROM HOME? My family and friends. Especially missing my little niece and nephew although I always visit. Obviously the Scottish banter and friendliness of the Scots.
ANY MESSAGE FOR FAMILY AND OLD FRIENDS? Love you! Come to London any time.
