London. Hong Kong. Bristol. Malaysia. Even before this trip started, we knew we were a family with many "homes". So when we decided to head off for 8 months of adventure, it made sense - we'd just bring home with us. We'd spend more time together. We'd rush less. We'd see more things with our eyes that this modern life tries to show us through a screen. We'd have balance. We'd create. We'd explore. We'd feel. We'd go. And we'll share these journeys here.
