There are many sights and sounds in Blackburn that can entertain even the pickiest of adventurers, with the beautiful cathedral at the center of the town, and the Italian renaissance-style Town Hall nearby. If you're in to sports, then checking out a game at Ewood Park would satisfy your match-day cravings.

Moving to Blackburn

InterNations' Expat Magazine has all sorts of handy resources and articles that relate directly to moving to a new town or city. In fact, many expatriates themselves will leave forum posts and write their own contributions to the magazine to help others that are moving to a specific place. If you just need someone to chat with, someone who might have had similar experiences, then the one-on-one message system will appeal to you - you can get in touch with a like-minded traveler and hear their stories, absorbing their travel advice. The Expat Magazine has articles that describe how to plan ahead before you leave - making sure you have all the correct travel documentation, visas, permits or passports to hand. Other articles discuss how to leave the country with the family pet, the regulations that are in place, and if the climate will be suitable for your feline or canine pal. Moving to Blackburn as an expatriate shouldn't be a struggle with the InterNations community of expats behind you.

Working in Blackburn

Once you've settled in to a new place, and you've got your bearings around the town, then it's time to start seeking out a new job.

Some expatriates are sent to a new city by their employer, but that doesn't mean they will automatically have an easy time of working in Blackburn. InterNations site has lots of forums and discussion groups, where you can read stories from other expats, learning how they handled life abroad, and how they made those first few difficult steps.

    For me, the InterNations events are the best part. I attend almost every get-together and always get to know lots of friendly fellow expats.
