No Fly Zone.  It's been a long time.  I stopped writing as soon as I got back from our 9 month long trip in December 2010.  Christmas, looking for a job and continuing to live like a nomad for a couple of months in London with lack of decent access to the internet (not that London doesn't have decent internet, it was just the circumstances that we found ourselves in).

Anyway, after a couple of months, we ended up in New York.  Many years ago when I was much younger, I'd said a few times that I wouldn't want to live in the USA, but when the opportunity arose to take a job in the big apple, it was hard to turn it down (and almost as hard to get the visa).

Now we've been here a couple of years, and are relatively settled (although neither of us plans to stay forever), I think it's time to reflect on our experience in this place, versus what we seen when we lived elsewhere and on the road.

And so I plan to use this blog to highlight the positives and negatives to living here, and compare and contrast it to (mostly) Europe.  I still love the old continent and how tings work there, so I'll try not to be too hard on the young upstarts on this side of the Atlantic.

And hopefully I also get around to finishing the rest of the travel blog that I didn't get around to from a few notes that I made, and what's in my head still.  I finished off with a blog post about Tibet back in 2010, so I'll try and take it from there, and talk about our Journey into the West (of China), followed by Georgia (not the state in the US) and Turkey, probably the most interesting countries we visited.

Anyway, let me see how long I keep going on these topics.
