Day 5: Coffee, Tate Modern and Shakespeare!
Having gotten a good night sleep and feeling like we had jet lag on the run, we had a good full English breakfast before setting off to see Westminster Abbey. Steve’s first glimpse of Big Ben was adorable. As you exit the Westminster tube station, it’s right there…RIGHT THERE The sky was cloudy but with enough […]
After what seemed like very little sleep, we awoke somewhere over the Atlantic ocean. Breakfast was served shortly thereafter and we saw land out of the window.

I’ve been a little quiet as I process the information I’ve gathered over the last two weeks. In a nutshell, I think I have found a direction for these musings…and my career.
Stuff – do we really need more? What if we got rid of one thing a day for five weeks to make room for the new adventures, experiences and few trinkets that we are going to gather? Would it change our lives?
