Basic Bon Vivant is my little corner of the Internet where I’ll be sharing photos, thoughts and recipes from my expat adventures. As the name suggests, there will be plenty to come about culture, food and drink abroad, as well as travel itineraries and all the best sights London has to offer.

About me

Hi there! I’m Jenn, an American expat living in London as of September 2016. My fiancé’s job offered us the opportunity to move to London for a few years and we jumped at the chance!

I love exploring new and familiar places alike and hope those featured here will inspire your imagination and wanderlust. I believe eating well is key to living well, in the nutritious and delicious sense of the word. Give me engaging conversation and a glass of wine, and I’m set.

I may be more basic than refined, but that doesn’t stop me from trying to live well and learn more about all this world has to offer. I’m an aspiring bon vivant on a budget, and I hope my travels show that you can be both basic and worldly.
