End Of A Journey

We are set to fly out in a few hours making this our last day in London.   This coming April would have been 5 years and its hard to believe its coming to an end but before we do, we have one last post on London.

That's us, fresh off the plane April 3rd 2007.  I can remember it so clearly.  It was our first views of the Thames, Big Ben, the Eye, and Parliament.  Little did we know that handing the camera over to a friendly stranger would be capturing the beginning of such an amazing journey.  From far off places, to opportunities to the numerous friends and colleagues we have had the pleasure of meeting, it has been more than we could have ever imagined.

In honor of that moment, we decided to reproduce that photo, this time at sunset to signify the end of the journey.  Steph's hair is a little longer, mine a little greyer, but there we are December 17th 2011.  Same spot, same pose but a little wiser and older.  Whoa!

Steph and I want to send out a big cheers to all of our friends, old and new, to our family and everyone else who had a hand in or supported us the last few years.  You've helped complete the experience and we couldn't have done it without you.

Life is full of journeys and this one has been more than AMAZING!  Let the next one begin -  Rock!

London Shots

So, before we officially end our time in London, I wanted to post a few photos I've been taking the last few months of this amazing city.  Initially I wanted and get some sunset shots of the capital landmarks, but after the time change and the 4pm sunset, it turned into some night shots of London after work on Tuesdays.  Anyway, here are a few of my favorites.  I'm gonna miss this city - Rock on London!

December is All Change!

It's December and the moustache is gone!  

It was a successful Movember campaign with the team and I raising well £1100 for Men's health!  This is a great result and I want to send out a HUGE thank you for all of the generous donations and amazing support throughout the month.  It is very much appreciated!  You can see the final result in the photo, it was a beast!

In other news, this will be my final Movember campaign in the UK.  Steph and I are officially moving back to the US at the end of 2011 and will be living in New York City.  It's been an absolutely amazing 4+ years but it is time for us to get closer to home.  However, there will be plenty more to come because we are taking a little time off to travel before we officially settle back home.  So as the train drivers say, "all change please, all change".

Oh, and don't worry, we will be home for the holidays!  Only this time the cats will be making the trip with us.

In the meantime, I'm going to try and get a few final posts out to wrap up 2011, but with all of the move logistics you'll have to cross your fingers.

Feel free to drop me a mail if you want more specifics...Rock!
