385,000 people left the UK in 2007 for a new life overseas, and women in their 20s and 30s were one of the biggest groups among them. In this book, Sally Corner passes on tips and advice for women on the move, based on her own experience of moving from London to Perth, the most remote city on earth. While dealing helpfully with the practicalities of emigration, The Sensible Girl's Guide to Emigrating Elegantly also focuses on the highly emotional mental journey that women experience when starting a new life overseas. Sally's lively and down-to-earth tone will inspire confidence in the readers whilst encouraging and amusing them with check lists, quizzes, questionnaires, and illustrations. Divided into two sections, the book looks at life before and after emigration. The opening chapters will help readers work out whether taking the plunge really is for them. If so, the rest of the book will lead them elegantly through everything they need to know to make life in their new country a great success.
