Every time I think I can’t come up with a snappy, alliterative title for a blog post, my brain throws me a bone. I’m sleepy and in Scotland?! The title writes itself! Anyway, it’s 8 PM on our first day of this trip and you know that that means – bed time! Making it this […]

I may have just gotten back from a trip to Six Flags (lots of fun, by the way), but it’s time for another international trip, don’t you think? Yes, that’s right – Scott and I are off on another adventure tomorrow! We’ll be hitting the UK (Scotland and Northern Ireland, but no London this time […]

Dateline September 2009 Location(s) United Kingdom – Manchester, London, Canterbury (England) / Swansea, Cardiff (Wales) Somehow it’s been nine whole months since my last Travel Throwback post! I would ask how that happened, but since I’m the one who writes this blog, I already know the answer to that question – I just didn’t make […]

Well, it’s 2019 already, isn’t it?? With a new year comes new travel opportunities, so here’s what I’ve got planned so far: February – no surprise here, but I’ll be making a return trip to Los Angeles for my annual visit to my favorite Doctor Who convention, Gallifrey One. March – also probably not a […]

I’m now home from my London trip! How did that happen?! I mean, I understand that vacations have to end, but does it have to be so quickly? Sheesh! Since the trip is over and I’m already back in the groove with life at home, it’s actually nice to still have one more day to […]

How has another day of this trip come and gone already? And how am I already going home the day after tomorrow?! These are always the questions we grapple with at the end of a trip, aren’t they? But I’ll worry about them tomorrow night, when I’ve finished my last full day here. 😀 Today […]

A palace, a museum (of sorts), and a West End show. Oh, and grey skies and rain, too. What could be more English than all of that?? But once again, everything I did today was new to me and I would never let a little rain ruin my day anyway! Today was the first day […]

Sometimes all you need is a good, old-fashioned catch-up with friends. And that’s exactly what I got today! In fact, we caught up for so long that I didn’t do much else today! But that’s totally fine with me. 🙂 Okay, I did actually do a little more than catch up with friends. To be […]

Somehow, writing these posts always seems to take longer than I think it will! After writing a couple hundred of them, you’d think I know better, but oh well. It’s editing the photos that takes such a big chunk of time and thankfully I’ve finished that, so now I just need to write! So while […]

Well, well, well – what do we have here? Jeff’s in the UK again? Yes my friends, I am! I only mentioned it briefly in a previous post and kept meaning to call it out again, but I’ve been too busy with my Travel Throwback posts. But still, probably not very shocking to learn I’m […]
