When the author and his wife first met, life was a big blank canvas ready to be painted. After a trip down the aisle, the purchase of the first home together and the adoption of a dog to atest the watersa before wading into the pool of parenthood, life started to become more about to-do lists and conformity. Their big dreams together began to start with the phrase aSomeday we will...a With time no longer on their side, asomedaya became atodaya when they decided to leave everything behind and move 3, 963 miles to London, England, to learn more about the world, themselves, their marriage, and what can happen when you find the courage to take a chance and do something great. On the surface, Wearing Wellies: A Year of Life a Love in London is the story of chasing lifelong dreams of queuing for Wimbledon tickets, greeting friends with kisses on both cheeks, close and personal encounters with the Queen, weekend trips to Paris, Italian cooking schools, and walks through the Cotswolds while wearing wellie boots with a dog named Sydney. But the story is really about life-changing relationships that the author and his wife make along the way with new friends who did not dress like them, sound like them, or think like them.... experience a place that they had read about in a novel or that had been the setting of a popular movie or television show. ... The campaign to get more people to travel to Paris or London on the Eurostar train could be judged a success purely based on ... The morning rush hour traffic on the metro had already ended, so we had plenty of space on the train as we traveled to the station closest to our hotel.
