Mont Orgueil Castle on Jersey

Mont Orgueil Castle on Jersey

I have to say that this was my most favorite outing while spending some time on Jersey Island over the summer. The views were spectacular and it’s always fun to visit old castles that served as a fortress to be reminded of modern day luxury. […]

Birmingham First Impression

Birmingham First Impression

After spending some time in London the only things I had heard about Birmingham were negative comments delivered with a scoff and sometimes a slight shake of the head. As you can imagine because of this I wasn’t too sure how well I was going to […]

Regent’s Park – Queen Mary’s Garden – Southeast

Regent’s Park – Queen Mary’s Garden – Southeast

Queen Mary’s Garden is my favorite part of Regent’s Park. It was created in 1932 and named after Queen Mary (obviously) who was married to King George V. There are around 12,000 roses in the garden and since they’re suppose to bloom in June I’m saving that […]
