Something I never thought I’d need to know as an expat was the finer details of how to transfer large sums between bank accounts abroad. I arrived in the UK with a wedge of travellers cheques kept verrrrry securely which I knew would keep me going until I found a job & set up a UK bank account. This is a sponsored post.
When I arrived (way back in pre-Smartphone days, can you imagine!?) I had my savings with me, I had a 24-month travel plan, a brand new A-Z London map book and a “temporary” thirst for exploration. No need for anything more permanent, right?
