Maybe mods can make this sticky. I think it'll be worthwhile- it's always interesting to see the progress other people have made when you are on a similar path. The idea is to add links to blogs etc here rather than fill this thread with posts. The ones below are the ones I am aware of/can remember ... Apologies if I forgot anyone but please add on.

Hey Britsimon,

Just want to say thanks for taking time to write your blogs. The information is invaluable to people like me who about to experience everything that the US of A entails.

I particularly appreciate the blogs on financial management, insurance, and establishing a credit history.

They are lucid, making them easy to read too = )

Thanks!!!

Glad you are enjoying them. I'm just trying to capture the stuff that I think will be useful, let me know if there is a topic you would like me to address...

"The idea is to add links to blogs etc here rather than fill this thread with posts."

The above phrase is to draw people's attention to what the creator of this thread had in mind when it was created. It has since being hijacked with chit-chats. In fact I've had to move a couple of posts from it to some other threads. As such, I'm locking it up, if anyone has a link to a related blog they think others may find useful, please contact one of the administrators with the information.

This thread has been unlocked for forum members to add useful blogs they may come across or wish to share with the rest of the forum. Again please note, it's not intended to be a chit-chat thread. All non-conforming posts will be deleted going forward.

Great article on the BBC today! http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-30537090

Leo actually got in touch with me to get our story (obviously not as interesting as Abdi's!) and used it to fact check many of the things, suprising he didnt mention the medical exam though.


Podcast available on the 29th! Will post a link.

Waw. Very interesting story. I can't wait to hear his voice on 29th December on BBC 04.
Thanks for sharing.

"....You can listen to Abdi and the Golden Ticket
on BBC Radio 4's Crossing Continents on 29
December at 20:30 GMT or catch up
afterwards on iPlayer. The programme ran
on the BBC World Service's Assignment
programme on Christmas Day, and can be
heard on the Assignment website...."
