Dad has been in London for a few days now. Whenever he drops by I like quizzing him about his university days in London and when he met mom.
And he’s probably right. I don’t think I’d have studied in the US, worked there, found my way to London, and have met and experienced the numerous variations of life and personalities along the way.
My cousin, Fernie, wrote a post about how change is good, how it contributes to one’s appreciation. Fern was born in the US, and moved about quite a bit: Malaysia, Texas, San Diego, and recently, Hangzhou. Her writing is simply beautiful and those of us who have moved about can certainly relate to.

Let me try to tie all the strings together. This blog, although unintentional, is mainly focused on travels that come about due to work and personal interest. I’m a firm believer in traveling as much as possible. Travels tend to throw you out of your comfort zone, and into circumstances that challenge you. She teaches you how to deal with them, and turns you into a stronger, yet versatile person over time. She is invaluable, priceless and teaches you how to persevere in the years ahead of us.
