Yes, The Food in England Was Delicious! And No, I Am Not Joking!

One of the things that I was worried about going to England was that the food wouldn’t be very good. In fact, I was worried that it would be bland and inedible, the word “cardboard” pops into my head. You see, that is what I have always been told back in the land of my birth, California. And the really crazy thing… Read more →

Monday Montage: Kettering and Bedford, England

I know I kept saying that we were going to London, England, but we had to make a couple of stops along the way. We arrived at Heathrow Airport in London at 11:00 p.m. about a week ago and had to drive directly to Kettering that night. Chad had to go to work the next day so there was no way to… Read more →

Though I am not writing, I still am here

I am no longer writing about our travels and expat lives here in Southeast Asia, but I wanted to give any future visitors an easy to find article that will show you how to find where we have been and how to contact us now.

Wednesday Write-Up: 201 Posts!

I know it may seem silly to celebrate 201 posts, but since I didn’t realize the milestone of writing about our adventures 200 times when I was publishing my post on Monday I thought I would just celebrate it as it is. In those 200 posts, we wrote about our beginnings, our travels, and how different and wonderful it was to… Read more →

The Free and Fun Things To Do In London with Kids

Not everything in London will cost you your first-born child, in fact many of the things that you can do are free. That’s right, FREE! On one of my recent posts about our time in England a fellow blogger  gave me the great idea to write a post about what a family can do in London on the cheap. So… Read more →

Rockingham Castle & Knights in Shining Armor

As we were driving to Gilly and Yevgeni’s house in the countryside north of London, we came upon a sign for Rockingham Castle. Not only that but it was a sign saying that there would be jousting there that weekend! The funny thing was, Gilly and Yevegeni had already been planning on taking us to it! Perfect! I was really excited as… Read more →

A Day in the English Countryside

One of the things that is amazing about traveling the world, is being able to meet up with people you have met along the way at a later time.  It’s even better when you get to see them in their own element… their hometown! Lucky for us, our friends G and Y live near Bedford and invited us over to stay… Read more →

Wednesday Write-Up: Wrapping Up

We are wrapping up our time here in London, England. We leave tomorrow to finally return to the warmer, cheaper, tropical-er (yes I know that’s not a real word) land of Phuket, Thailand. What a time these last two months have been! I am still planning on writing more about our time in sunny England… no seriously… it has been sunny and WARM… Read more →

And Then Sometimes You Embarrass Yourself Horribly

During the past fifteen months of traveling around the world, we have been on over thirty airplanes. We have had flights delayed (almost always American Airlines),  flights cancelled (always American Airlines), and almost missed our flights. Most often the almost missed flights have been due to traffic on the way to the airport, or looking at the departure times incorrectly, but last… Read more →

Monday Montage: Good-Byes Suck

Today is our last day in California. My heart is breaking from all the good-byes I have had to say this week, but I am so thankful that I was able to see everyone that I did.  This visit has been better than I imagined and I will be writing more about it as this week goes on, but right now… Read more →
