It’s time to step foot in the U.S. for the first time in 2.5 years. And that also means moving in with my parents.
After having sailed Elements from Florida, through the Caribbean, up to the Azores, and then the Arctic Circle of Norway down to the UK…we left her behind in England, and now needed to take the next steps in our lives.
Flying out from our friend’s home in Twickenham, we head to London Heathrow to begin the long journey home…with our cat! She’ll be flying in cabin with us for this 24 hours of travel, so we’re very nervous on how it all could turn out.

Much love from Phoenix!
Jessica, Matt & Georgie
