Clare and I were awoken today to flashes of light and people laughing. It was 6:30 on a Wednesday morning, so we didn’t get the impression it was anyone coming back from a raging night out. As I wiped the sleep from my eyes Clare said, “Has it snowed?”
Sure enough, it had. We raced out of bed, into our thermals and many other layers of clothing, and headed out for some photos!
I suppose I owe a bit of an update on top of this; it has been a while.
First, I apologise for the lack of detail between Rome and San Francisco and then most of America. That’ll all go online soon and I’ll message you all to let you know it’s up. All the photos are up though, so you can see the adventure!
Right now though I have a place to live in London. The place is a little studio apartment. You walk into the bedroom, dining and living area which also contains an ‘Italian’ kitchen (real estate speak for small), cordoned off by some cupboard doors. Then there’s a tiny bathroom separate. It’s pretty good, we’re only there for eating and sleeping really so we don’t need anything fancy. Let’s face it, priority is on working, earning money and travel!
Clare arrived last Thursday, had an interview on Monday with two agencies and started work on Tuesday. I’m still job hunting. I’ll keep you posted on that.
Anyway, the area we’re in (Willesden Green in North West London) is nice. It’s got some good shops around, we’re close to the station and there’s a nice park that we walk to for exercise and the odd stroll.
I’m not sure what else to report. You can ask questions, I’m more than happy to reply! But I’m afraid it’s no longer like travel, new things every day. But it is nice to settle in one place for a while and get into a routine, and have some time to reflect on all I’ve done (and update it on here so you can all see too).
To all those people from home and travel, who I’m no longer seeing all the time, I miss you heaps. Keep sending the e-mails and photos because I love hearing from you.
Oh, and a big “Happy Australia Day” to everyone, hope you all have a good one!
