Not too bad today. Toasty warm tailwind today on the ride home for the first few miles, turned into a good crosswind toward the end of the ride. Summer weather is here for sure!

We've considered it, however she's a teacher and I'm a psychologist, both native English speakers. It would be tough to start over in those fields with a new language. England is tempting though...
