The Sensible Girl's Guide to Emigrating Elegantly Paperback / softback


385,000 people left the UK last year 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 moving from London to Perth, the most remote city on earth.

The book isn't country-specific, but aims to instil confidence in the readers whilst encouraging and amusing them with check lists, quizzes, questionnaires, and illustrations - making emigration far more accessible to the average 'Sensible Girl' living in the UK.Rather than simply focussing on the practicalities of emigration, The Sensible Girl's Guide to Emigrating Elegantly concentrates on the highly emotional mental journey that women experience when starting a new life overseas.

The book is divided into two sections, "before" and "after" emigrating.

The first few chapters are dedicated to working out whether the reader actually wants to emigrate.

Then the reader is gently guided through the whole physical and emotional emigration experience both in the UK and in their newly chosen country.
