LondonĀ for the Millionth Time

Jumping across the pond tends to be easier to do in/out of London. There are so many flights and then all of Europe is open to explore! It seems that every time I travel I meet about 4,000 new people that live in London. I had plans for a few nights but I wanted to…

Bonjour Paris

Sometimes part of the fun of traveling is the journey in between places. I took the bus from London to Paris and we crossed the English Channel by ferry. It was an absolutely beautiful day and the perfect opportunity for a mini photo shoot and a nice break from sitting on the bus for 9…

A different way to see London

I have been to London a few times and also met quite a few people while traveling that now live in London. Since I was in northern England I thought I would swing through and visit friends that I haven’t seen in a while. I met up with friends that I met in Ecuador, Italy,…

England in a day

It seems that I just couldn’t stay away from England during these 7 months of backpacking. I went for a third trip to meet up with a girl I met in Rome that lives in Dallas and was in London for her birthday. One of the best things about traveling is seeing some of the…

London round 2

I started this adventure of backpacking with my mom and step dad when we landed in London on April 15th. Completely by coincidence and because of the Schengen rules limiting what countries I can be in at this time, my mom landed in London exactly 6 months later on October 15th to meet me for…

Farewell London and hello France

I would count today as mostly a travel day. It was my first adventure on Easyjet and I am sure not my last. I would compare them to the service of Southwest with the “add-on” options of Spirit. You pay to print your boarding pass at the airport, receive an assigned seat, check your luggage,…

A day in the English countryside

Today was a day journey to the lovely countryside of England. Once again, we were able to visit some friends who showed us all around their area. We had a beautiful drive and passed some grape seed that I had to stop and take a picture of! I think the picture looks perfect! We started…

A French culinary tour through London…sort of

We have been setting out to accomplish so much everyday and falling quite short. Today we set out to have lunch, walk around the Saatchi Gallery and have dinner. And I must say, we accomplished it all! We thought we were experts at the train by now, but we still managed to get on the…

Matisse and more!

It seems that we can not make it out of the house at a reasonable time and somehow we had another late start. But I guess that is why we chose to have 6 days in London. It was another gorgeous day and I felt that I needed to take a token selfie to capture…
