Month: August 2017

Has it really been a week since we arrived in London? I suppose it has! A week ago today, I was just getting home from work and was buzzing with excitement about this trip. Now, a week later, my bag is (mostly) packed and I’m relaxing in our flat, thinking of the fun (and great […]

Spoiler alert – yesterday’s London adventures are totally summed up in the title of this post. There was lots of sun (as per the rest of this trip), we saw lots of flowers (and various other trees, plants, and foliage), we ate some Indian food, and we saw a really funny show. So yeah, that […]

You know how you sometimes have those days where you don’t really have anything specific planned and you don’t end up doing anything special, but you have a nice day anyway? That was our Sunday in London! After yesterday’s early(ish) wake-up call, it was so nice to not have to wake up for anything this […]

Is it really Saturday night already?? To be fair, you may be reading this years after I wrote it, so it could be Tuesday afternoon for you, but for me, right this moment, it’s Saturday night (okay, to be fair, it WAS Saturday night when I started this, but it’s now Sunday morning) and we’re […]

Another day in London has come to an end, so time continues to fly by, but we’re having a lot of fun! After arriving jet-lagged on Wednesday and needing to get up at a specific time yesterday to catch our train to Brighton, it was very nice to not have anything to wake up for […]

It’s already Friday! The sun is shining and there’s a nice breeze coming in from our patio as I write today’s blog from our London flat. Of course, London isn’t where we spent our time yesterday as we went spent the day in Brighton. And what a great day it was! For the uninitiated, Brighton […]

We have arrived! Yesterday, that is. London, I’m in you again and, as usual, I couldn’t be happier! The flight from Minneapolis proved to be as uneventful as possible, which is generally a good thing for flights, I’d say. We departed on time, got no sleep (as per usual), and even landed a little bit […]

Yes, that’s right! After catching up on my last few trips in my most recent posts, the time has come to take a new trip, albeit to an old destination. My annual pilgrimage to the UK is happening tonight! This time, Scott is coming with me and, for the first time since he and I […]

Another day, another catch-up post. This one is pretty straightforward though because, after all, what can you say about a beach vacation? Other than “fun and relaxing” obviously! In March, Scott (my husband, don’t ya know) and I traveled to sunny Orange Beach, Alabama to spend a week with his parents at the condo they […]
