The story of how I quit my job and went to play in Madrid

An adventure is never an adventure when it’s happening.
Challenging experiences need time to ferment, and an adventure is simply physical and emotional discomfort recollected in tranquility.

Tim Cahill.  

This is exactly how I feel about our moving to Spain. It’s not easy or fun all the time, but it definitely is an adventure! 


One day, Alice came to a fork in the road and saw a Cheshire cat in a tree.

“Which road do I take?” she asked.

“Where do you want to go?” was his response.

“I dont know,” Alice answered.

“Then,” said the cat, “it doesn’t matter.”

Lewis Carol

Beyond the east the sunrise; Beyond the west the sea
And East and West the Wander-Thirst that will not let me be;
It works in me like madness to bid me say goodbye,
For the seas call, and the stars call, and oh! The call of the sky!

I know not where the white road runs, nor what the blue hills are,
But a man can have the sun for friend, and for his guide, a star;
And there’s no end to voyaging when once the voice is heard,
For the rivers call, and the road calls, and oh! The call of a bird!

Yonder the long horizon lies, and there by night and day
The old ships draw to home again, the young ships sail away
And come I may, but go I must, and if men ask you why,
You may put the blame on the stars and the sun,
And the white road and the sky.

 Wander-Thirst, by Gerald Gould
