On this blog, I focus frequently on the discipline and effort required to lead an Old Money life. I rarely discuss the rewards, and I’m even less inclined to share my personal life.
However, I think it may help to share, on rare occasions, the rewards that sometimes result from adhering to the Core Values I emphasize in The Old Money Book. One of the biggest rewards is travel. Done properly, it’s an enriching, enlightening, and educational experience that’s worth ten times the cost of the airplane ticket. As a writer, I find it essential.
To that end, over the next few months, I’ll be sharing the odd photo and a brief caption from my travels. Credit for the photos goes to my wife, who has quite an eye, but prefers to stay behind the camera.
Wardrobe note: I am wearing jeans in some of these photos. I prefer khakis and slacks. So do many pickpockets: it makes liberating your wallet much easier. Tight jeans, with the wallet securely shoved into the front pocket, make the pickpocket’s job more difficult, and holding onto that Old Money much easier.
So, please, enjoy the photos. And I welcome your comments and contributions from your own travels.
