P here....just checking in with some thoughts from our travels so far.

I made these little stickers to leave in public places for our little bit of guerrilla kindness offering to the world...Lyra can't stop leaving them everywhere, the stash is going quick because I was kicking myself I didn't make some in French....ahhhh, next time! 

It was a crazy long day of travel....this dear girl rode 1 bus, 2 planes, a  train, the underground and 1 double decker bus...all through the night. Her world traveler heart was almost worn out, but she held on. Lyra, on the other hand, was breathing travel like oxygen, the kid could. not. get. enough. 

 

The travel journal from the Koshocks was the best idea/gift ever. I'm not sure how but it turned educational about all sort of things- not "how to make love" ....it has become this little spot for doodles, notes and quotes...the best quotes so far:  "you guys, let's stand over here so we can be ourselves..."- reasons not to be near a crowd- Jorge. "Is that where people make phone calls?" Lyra, upon seeing a phone booth and phones with cords for the first time in her life. "well, yes, and the place where super heroes change into their costumes." - Lucy "look out Dr. Pepper, I am coming for you." -Jack, realizing vacation = sugar drink magic, and we all decided this would also be something Gene from Bob's Burgers would say. "so travel is about time...and waiting, lots of waiting." -Lyra, on the work of getting anywhere awesome. "in our country..." - a new phrase added to our conversation, the world is BIGGER than RVA for us now.  "I thought the palace would be ummmm, a little more palatial?....I agree, it could use more." -Jorge and Josiah about Buckingham Palace. "you guys, do you see the GOLD everywhere?! -patience  "I think this is crazy, a tourist trap and who needs a house this big?" - Jack about Buckingham- these are the hilarious responses/pitfalls of life changes (i.e. getting rid of 1/2 of all you own)... look for Jack on a motorcycle in Shoreditch next week. ......part 2 coming soon- Hackney and magical food!!
