Tower of London. European holiday 2008.
Tower of London. European Holiday 2008.

I think you’d have gathered by now, that I don’t do my blogs in necessarily the order that my life occurs. Sometimes, I’m off, seeing several places over several days, and it takes some days before I download my photos, and think of something to say. It depends on my mood, whether I feel like writing and whether there’s anything else going on in my life that’s distracting me.  I’m sure you understand.  Suffice it to say that I will try to keep this blog as current as possible. It is, after all, a discovery, and I’m happy for you to join me in the journey. What’s life for, if not for the discovery.

It’s worthwhile me mentioning that I am enjoying writing my travel blogs. If anything, it’s a reminder to me to keep looking for something great to say about every environment I’m in. To share photos which would have been very ordinary, but is very special because of the location of where’s it was taken. I’ve had friends who’ve written to me saying what a charmed life I seem to be leading at the moment. And it is a charming life, I must admit. There are times I pinch myself because I can’t believe I’m in London.

But for those who’ve lived life long enough, you know that not everything goes smoothly, and with a move as big as this, there’s lots of details that need to be sorted out. I just don’t want to bore you with details and the drama. So that you know, I experience moments of whether we made the right decision, I sometimes feel homesick, I have very few friends here, I miss working and I feel guilty when my son misses his old school and friends. And yes, I do wonder why I’m here.

These are all natural thoughts and feelings. It is a big move. And I remind myself that it’s for the discovery, and that’s what keeps life interesting and exciting. Learning new things, getting creative and challenging the way you’ve always done things.  Do I rant and rave? Absolutely, but not to you.  In my life so far, I’ve moved 3 countries and 4 cities. But more so than previous moves, London is a city that I’m taking on like a mission.  Not because it’s London, but just because.  And I have to say, I’m loving every minute of the discovery.
