About: The Kate behind UKate
From Texas to Toronto to Trowbridge, I have always been a ‘new-comer.’ While teaching high school in the US, I learned the most important yet ridiculously simple lesson – LISTEN to people. Everyone has a story to tell, every place has legends waiting to unfold. I’m not particularly interested in learning about my new home from Wiki, although that certainly isn’t a slur against wikipedias. I want to taste, smell, watch, ask and hopefully learn. There are times when I’m absolutely certain that I am coming across as a complete fool, but more often than not, people are delighted to talk about themselves and their homes. The most amazing thing that I have discovered so far? Listening to people tell their stories is genuinely fascinating.
So here I am, in England for the very first time, engaged to be married and exploring my new home.
