Basic Bon Vivant is my little corner of the Internet highlighting the many adventures, travels and discoveries of my expat life based in London.
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.
