Last night, a few of us met up at Villain’s after work to meet up with Brian, and to wish him a fond farewell. He’s due to start a new life abroad, and will be attending the International Journalism MA program at City University London. On top of that, he’ll also be working on his Kickstarter-funded book, London and a Year.
Prior to the party, Utopia created a lovely little tribute to Brian that will serve as a reminder for us here in the office. It’s a small plane, chock full of his favorite things – bananas, hummus, tea.
As a reminder, if we ever get to missing him here in the office… we can just look to this miniature message.
A quick example of the fisheye lens. Probably not the best shot in the world, but it gives you a sense of what it does.
L to R it’s Tim, Rick and Chris.
Brian brought with him his copy of Settlers of Catan. I think this was so that one of us could keep it safe, while he’s away. A few of us were talking about how much we enjoyed this game, and I think now that Kickball season is over… we might have a few folks interested in a pickup game.
Good luck to you Brian. In a few days, you’ll be headed out the door and setting foot onto a plane that will take you into a new country, a new life. There are an incredible number of new experiences and adventures ahead, and like the others who know you… we’re incredibly excited for you.
You were a born traveler, if ever there was one my friend. Good luck, and we’ll be looking forward to new photos and dispatches.
