The Tate Modern and its surroundings

I made a new friend! Yeah! We met at this lovely Tapas restaurant called Mar i Terra. And some delicious comida and vino. This view was across the street from the restaurant and I thought it was an example of old and new. The Blackfriar Wine Bar is […]

My first pub quiz!

My first pub quiz!

When my honey and I were dating we both loved the movie Going The Distance with Drew Barrymore and Justin Long. We were about the same distance apart and we related to the time difference. Texting someone when you’ve had too many at the bar […]

The Queen’s Walk

Mom and I spent some time on the Queen’s Walk when she was here in February. It was sunny and dry for most of the day and so we enjoyed that while it lasted.

We wandered down here one day after we visited the British Library (which I posted about HERE) and we probably should have snacked a bit because there is a lot of history and things to learn in this place. Be prepared… is all I’m saying. […]

British Library

The British Library was a treat. I’m sure in warmer weather it’s lovely to sit outside in the courtyard. It’s nicely separated from the street so that while you hear the traffic, you can’t see it.

The View from The London Eye

The View from The London Eye

For mom’s first full day in London we went on a Private Black Cab Tour of London (which I blogged about HERE) and he dropped us off at the Eye for some viewing pleasure. I opted for the Day and Night ticket so we got to […]

I entered this drawing for a free black cab tour on a blog I follow The Little London Observationist (now she’s focusing on her new blog The Little Observationist)… and I won! Yeah for me. And for my mom. I waited until she visited to […]
