Basic Bon Vivant is my little corner of the Internet highlighting the many adventures, travels and discoveries of my expat life based in London. Check back here each Tuesday for a new travel post and (some) Thursdays for London and expat-focused posts!
Meet the basic bon vivant
Hi, there! I’m Jenn, an American expat living in London. I moved to London from Boston in September 2016 for my (now) husband’s job. I started this blog as a way to keep active as a trailing spouse, but as my expat life in London grew, so too did my love of documenting everything on here!
I’ll be the first to admit that I am totally basic (how I miss living somewhere with several months of PSL season!), but I’d also consider myself an aspiring bon vivant. London is a fabulous place to work on that, with easy acces to some of the world’s best food, drink and events.
I love exploring new and familiar places alike and hope those featured here will ignite your imagination and wanderlust.
