Our Latest Adventure

Stretford_1 For the last six years, my wife and I have lived here: South Manchester in the United Kingdom, on the edge of Europe (viewed here from 35,000 feet). We moved here after getting married, and have enjoyed a grand adventure with our friends. However, last Friday we were at the US Embassy in London for the final stage of the visa application process, procuring the necessary clearance to allow me to live in the United States.

Knoxville Sometime in the next few months, we will be moving here: Knoxville, Tennessee, in the United States of America (also viewed from 35,000 feet). This is where my wife lived before we got married, and we have many friends who live here looking forward to our impending return - not to mention her family, living in a "log mansion" a few hours drive to the west. This is the location for our new adventure!

Our_house All that stands between us and the transatlantic move is the sale of our house, pictured here (it's the second one on the south side of the road, counting from the top left of the image). It's going to be hard to leave our friends in the United Kingdom behind, but all things change in time, and I expect we'll be back in Europe as often as we can. If nothing else, I should be over on business quite often, as International Hobo is more international than ever right now.

I'm about to begin a strange new life on the other side of the world...

Well, we'd better meet up for a drink then - especially as I could probably walk to your house from mine (I'm in Urmston).

Inexplicably moving *away* from Old Trafford? It seems like blasphemy...

Maybe I'll be able to visit sometime in '07.

Peter: email me! I tried to set something up with you the other week, but it seems you didn't get the email I sent. Drop me a line over email and we can set it up.

Neil: If it's blasphemy to be able to drive around freely on a match day, then so be it. :)

Patrick: sure! You might even get an invite to the housewarming, once there's a house to be warmed. :D

Oooh, lovely Tennessee. Good luck!


For some reason my first comment was not published, so here it goes again:

Good luck and all the best on your new adventure! Any plans for an American IHobo office?


Chico: yes, there will very soon be both a US and a UK office of International Hobo, although in all fairness the company is so virtual already that the physical office space has very little to do with the company! :)
