We've quit our jobs in Silicon Valley and are headed off to spend two years
working in England. We want to travel throughout Europe and the Middle East
for a while before settling down, and have decided that the best way to do that
is to work in England, where we can take frequent trips to local countries.
Also, much of my (Lawrence's) family lives in France and Belgium, and this will
give us plenty of opportunities to see them. We'll be working in Bristol, a
town about 100 miles west of London, near the city of Bath.
We'll work here through the end of December, put our belongings in a storage
locker, and drive across the country. We'll get to Virginia, where my parents
live, in late January, spend two weeks there for my 30th birthday, then head
off to England for our late-February starting date.
We've got jobs doing web development. The salary is low, but the benefits are
good -- 37-hour workweeks, 27 days of vacation per year, occasionally being
able to work at home, and possibly living in the beautiful town of Bath.
We'll be documenting our trip across the country here, posting updates and
pictures while on the road. We'll also document our vacations and trips in
Europe. Sign up as a member if you want to get an email when we add a new
