Didn’t I just say in my last post that I was pretending I don’t have to fly home soon? Now that it’s even closer to my flight home, it’s a bit harder to keep pretending I won’t be home soon, especially since my stuff is mostly all packed up now. If I can’t keep up […]

Gah! It’s already Sunday evening, which means I’ve only got two full days left on this trip! Time certainly does fly when you’re having fun. And I haven’t yet written about my enjoyable Saturday, but that’s what I’m here to do now, so let’s focus on that, shall we? ๐Ÿ™‚ So, Saturday. It was another […]

Oh, what a fun day today was! Mostly, that was because of the great show we saw this evening – I’m still buzzing from it! As someone who admittedly hasn’t had a ton of experience with live stage shows, I don’t have as much to compare tonight’s show to, but I know what I like, […]

The fact that I’m writing this (well, starting it) at nearly 11 PM means I must have done a good job of resetting my internal clock last night. I guess going to bed at 7:30 PM and sleeping for 12 hours will do that, eh? No matter the reason, I’m so glad I was refreshed […]

Well! Here I am, sitting in my hotel room (okay, I’m technically sitting up in bed, but close enough) in London. That’s something I haven’t been able to say in 2.5 years, thanks to COVID (I was last here in November 2019), so it feels great! And the fact that the sun is shining through […]

That’s right! After a 2.5-year absence, I’m finally heading to London again! It’s kind of weird to think about because, even though I’ve traveled a few times in the last six months, this is the first long-haul flight I’ve taken, plus it’s the first time I’ve been able to get to the UK since before […]

Has it really been two years?!?! Two years since I’ve been to London, my favorite city in the world? It’s hard to believe, but with a global pandemic raging, travel hasn’t been easy for most of the last two years. With things getting somewhat better this year, with vaccines becoming so widely available, and with […]

Although regular readers will remember the final post from last month’s London trip, I thought I would “officially” wrap things up with a quick recap of the flight home. Nothing wrong with squeezing in an extra blog post before the end of the year, right? In short, the flight home was peachy! As with my […]

Gahhhh, it’s my last day! In fact, it’s the end of my last day as I’m starting this post from my room, looking at my packed bag. I definitely won’t finish the post until tomorrow, so I may already be home by the time you read this. While it’s always sad to see any trip […]

I’m starting this post very early! I’ve had a pretty low-key day (though I’ve still done lots of walking around, according to my step tracker), but I’m back in my hotel lounging for a bit before going out again later. More on that shortly! I really didn’t have anything planned when I woke up today […]
