Traveler Bio

Hey, everyone :) You can call me Mehr (mee-her). I will bring you along with me for the next few months to London as I share the languages, cultures and country formalities that exist in the melting pot of the United Kingdom! 

I am currently in London and I moved here from New York. London is known to be one of the melting pots of diversity where different cultures and communities from everywhere "melt" together into one. Here I am bounded by more than 270 nationalities and 300 languages! Living in London allows me to grow, learn and live in many ways. I have become more aware of different cultures and customs people have abroad. 

I am delighted to write and share my stories with you as I go through different experiences, especially while living alone for the first time in my life! I hope to inspire you through my digital exchange journey with you. Join me!
