That is exactly what I told my Mom when she asked me a few days ago when was I coming home.
January 6, 2009 is an important day because I was originally scheduled to be flying to New York’s JFK today from Heathrow.
But I made one important mistake when planning this round the world (RTW) adventure.
I planned too small.
I wasn’t bold and audacious enough, to paraphrase my President-elect.
But I’m making up for that right now.
I’ll be here in London for another week or so. Paris is a 2 hour train ride away.
Then it becomes where do I go on a whim.
Europe allows me to do that with cheap flights within 2-3 hours of London. $150US round trip to major European cities.
Ferries and buses are also cheap ways to travel around.
Cheap housing with hostels or simple day trips and you can keep it affordable, even with the value of the dollar still low compared to the euro and pound.
So I’ll pay the cost for moving today’s flight.
But how could I end it now? So many of you are having too much fun watching me!
See, I’m doing this for you!
