West Meets East

A Western man travels East in search of love, opportunity and happiness.

This blog chronicles my adventures as I leave my native California and travel east to northern Virginia to start a new life. I can only imagine the funny stories I'll recount here as I experience a wildly different climate, culture and way of life.

One Sun Sets, Another Rises



It's been 15 years or more since I last lived outside of California, and even then I didn't really have a home. I had 350 roommates, and I had a place to sleep, but "home" was whatever port or section of the Pacific our ship happened to be steaming in. Now, I'm underway again, pointing my prow east, toward new horizons and new adventures. Behind me, the sun sets in the Pacific. Ahead, a new sun will soon rise in the east.

Mike,
It takes a lot for me to get all tearied eyed, but my friend, you have managed to do so. I don't know what I would have done if I had to give up my cat.

I agree with Cold, we feel like we are right there with you buddy. Be safe and please keep it going. We love the adventure.
