About Me

Hi there.  My name is Erica.  If you are reading this right now, thanks :).  I am an expat (from Buffalo, NY) living across the pond in Birmingham, England.  This is my first time ever moving away from home. I arrived February 2015 with the goal of sticking it out for one year.  A year and a half later, here I am!

I created this blog to document my time over here.  I chose Buffalo Brummie because I’m living the “Brummie” lifestyle, but my heart will always be in my hometown of Buffalo.  Since I’ve arrived in Birmingham I’ve been very active in seeking out things to do and places to have a cocktail (or 3).  Because I’m not a local I’ve been noticing places and events others seem to overlook.  People get into the habit of doing the same thing week after week when there is actually a lot to be seen in Birmingham.   I’ve actually had people from Birmingham ask ME for advice on restaurants and things to do!!  I’m going to use this blog as a platform to share my findings.   With curiosity as my guide, I am determined to get to know my new continent, and learn a thing or two while I’m at it.

It’s easy to miss things hiding in your own backyard if you don’t go out and look!
