Default Moving to the states, to Iowa City. Go Hawkeyes!

This is just a self indulgent thread to announce that I am moving to Iowa City. There's simply not enough to do here in London, and culturally I find the people a little backwards.

So I'm moving to Iowa. Yes for real. I will be moving in late September and living with a student at the University. Her apartment (as it is called over there) is apparently right opposite the stadium and surrounded by tailgating on gameday. Unfortunately for me Iowa is a bit of a blackspot for NFL. The easiest team to get to is probably the Chicago Bears, but that's a 3 hour drive (to Chicago, plus whatever the traffic is like around the the stadium), with Indy, St Louis and Kansas being the next most accessible.

Congratulations and best wishes for your move

As much as you may consider Iowa an NFL blackspot, at least you'll be alot closer to teams than any of us are!

That's like a pop to the shops for a lot of Americans!

What a fantastic opportunity.
Hope you have a great time there SA. You'll find it a lot like London. No Brits anywhere

Good luck! I'm sure you'll have great fun supporting the Hawkeyes, it's a shame Iowa is full of Bachmann lovers, but let's not get into politics.

I'm sorry I don't mean to rain on your parade but what made you go London...boring....Iowa City....EXCITING?

Haha most Americans look at that part of the country and fall asleep. Why not live on a coast? NYC, Miami, Wilmington (NC), Baltimore, DC, Boston, Portland, Seattle, San Diego, LA, San Fran...?

The love of a good woman appears to make Iowa City seem more attractive. I can see that

So I'm moving to Iowa.
Surely this is the wrong way around

I dont think I could ever leave London fulltime.Unless it was to live in some cave in Tibet for years and meditate.

Good luck on your move, hope everything pans out.

I lasted ten years. That was enough for me.
