Traveling is cheap.

What a bold statement, but our temporary housing here in expensive London is an example - more on that in a moment.

I’ll retry: living while traveling can be cheap.

This is a theme, an argument even, that will recur throughout our time blogging here, so I won’t belabor it, but the premise is that if you can get an opportunity to travel - without needing to hold down rent, mortgage or utility bills - in a transition of your life, you can live quite cheaply. WIth few checks to cut at home - student loans and credit card bills come to mind for Sean and I - your largest costs are housing and actual transportation.

Preconceived Notions: London, England

Posted by Christopher Wink on Oct 2, 2008 in Preconceived Notions

Having never been in London before I’m shedding some thoughts on how I imagine that city before I yet see it. We landed last night, but, aside from a few train rides from the airort to the East London home of Sean’s brother where we’re staying and a Stella Artois or two, I haven’t seen a thing.

These preconceived notions are something you should come to expect here. As we arrive in each city, one of us will share with you how we imagine it. Then we’ll try to show you how wrong we learn we are.

London is one of the world’s banking hubs - so I imagine this global financial crisis we’re working on over here. As I result I suspect some skyscrapers have grown, though I can’t say I’ve ever seen, nor can now find a clear skyline photo. Its aged history, no doubt, keeps that from developing too thoroughly, I’d guess. Too many historical buildings - and federal bureaucracy - standing in the way.

Landed in London

Posted by Christopher Wink on Oct 1, 2008 in Experiences

London's iconic Tower Bridge, not to be confused with the more famous London Bridge

We landed in London this evening.

After having to get up at 4 A.M. to make out 8 A.M. flight, I have learned one indisputable truth: Sean is not a morning person.

Video, photos, stories and more to come when we get settled, have some time and find a steady Internet source.

Keep it real.
