Facebook iconOur aim is to encourage people like us (who have come to live in East Lothian) to share experiences about their new life here.

We want to help you to settle down, make some friends and to provide any information you need, as we know it is not an easy step to start a new life in another country.

We hope that you like our idea and join us! Smile
