Moving To London

Yeah. That's going to be our new residence in the South Kensington area of London. We are boarding the plane in a few hours.


To get away from Obamacare of course!


We orchestrated an ex-pat deal for my wife. So she will work there for around 12 months - I wouldn't imagine it being any longer, but who really knows.

The main reason is so that our kids can see a bit of Europe, i.e. educational reasons. We plan on traveling across the "Continent" often because flights from Europe, to Europe, are relatively cheap.

Almost every single person has said, "I'm will be a great experience....and I'll come visit you there."

First of all, they weren't invited!

Secondly, most of these trash-talkers have never even visited us in NYC - which also happens to be A, if not THE, most amazing city on this overheated, freezing, doomed planet. And in NY they (theoretically) have free board.


We only have 1,500 sq feet and 3 bedrooms in our "flat". How much do y'all think that costs on a monthly basis? (Warning - it will turn your stomach.)

I read your blog from 2 years. I remember that your grandfather was a Polish soldier. You should visit your grandfather's country of Poland. If you do not have the time I recommend a weekend trip to Warsaw or Krakow.
Waiting for an article from the tour.

Indeed we are thinking about flying to Poland.

My Polish grandfather turned 100 a few months ago! (We had a big party.)

My grandmother on the other side is Polish too, btw.

Someone here in London told us that we should hit the non-touristy type places, like Poland, Lithuania, etc. rather than just Paris, Rome, and whatnot.

This made a lot of sense to us.
