About this Blog:
I started this blog a while back (2008) to take note of things I thought were useful and things I liked as a recently settled American expat in London. It evolved to be a personal reference, as I keep track of places I have been, projects I have undertaken, and things I think are useful or humorous. Particularly when it comes to travels, it’s great to have a documented reference because I can easily share it with others and relive my adventures by rereading the summaries from long ago.
I took a bit of a break from this between 2011 and 2016. I had a difficult year or two, and after my divorce, it felt strange to stitch my new life onto my old life in writing. In the end, I decided it’s all mine, so I might as well just kluge it all together, just like the real deal.
I’ve always written it with the assumption that I’ve an audience of one, so I’m always happy to hear if anything I’ve written has been helpful or entertaining to you.
If you like the header picture, it’s a very cropped shot of a memorial in Budapest that I photographed in 2007.
As of 2017, I am 40 years old. I live with my partner, Adrian, and two cats in London, UK.
