Jersey Lavender Fields

Jersey Lavender Fields

Being as honest as possible without being rude about it, I’ll say that this was not my favorite thing to do on the island. First off I lead my mom and I on the wrong path to the farm. By this I mean that I […]

The Dark Horse in Moseley Village

The Dark Horse in Moseley Village

The Dark Horse is the first place we ate in Moseley Village. We were casing the area for a potential place to live and stopped because we were starving. I am so glad we did and we have returned time and again since. My favorite […]

A short stay at Castle Bromwich in Birmingham

A short stay at Castle Bromwich in Birmingham

When I first visited Birmingham we stayed here for a few nights so we could get the lay of the land. It was interesting. Can’t say I’d stay again but it was an experience and I try not to throw those away. We wandered around […]

Jersey Island All Day Tour

Jersey Island All Day Tour

The first time my honey told me he was going to Jersey my mind filled with images of tan, muscular, fist pumping youths. “Oh… well, I’m kind of sad you’re going to my country without me, but I hope you have fun.” I said, half hearted. “No, ” […]

My first day on the North Downs Way

My first day on the North Downs Way

So a friend asked me if I wanted to make the Pilgrimage with her to Canterbury. Uh… yeah I do. What’s involved with that exactly? Oh…you know… walking for 4 days straight. Oh yeah… I could totally do that. Oh really? This is a question […]

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 […]

Regent’s Park – Broad Walk and Avenue Gardens

Regent’s Park – Broad Walk and Avenue Gardens

Regent’s Park is a good size. Like most parks in London, and those done properly they have separately designed areas… like rooms. Queen Mary’s Garden, The Duck Pond, The Broad Walk through the length of it, the Avenue Garden. I love walking through this park […]

Chimichanga – Mexican Food!

Chimichanga – Mexican Food!

I’m pretty happy with the close proximity of Chimichangas at Belsize Park. It’s not the best mexican food I’ve had in London, but when I’m craving fajitas and some yummy cheese filled and fried jalapeños it’s a good choice. Some of the lovely meals I’ve […]

Thames River Tour – Millennium Bridge to Greenwich

Thames River Tour – Millennium Bridge to Greenwich

This is the follow up to Thames River Tour – Westminster to Millennium Bridge… the rest of the pictures. The thing I took away from the tour is what the acronym WHARF stands for…ware-house at river front. I still think it’s a cool piece of information. […]

Thames River Tour – Westminster to Millennium Bridge

Thames River Tour – Westminster to Millennium Bridge

I got a Groupon for the Red Rover River Tour and my Honey and I cashed it in. We chose an inconvenient day to wait in line for it… it was long. So after waiting in line for about 30 minutes, being constantly bumped by […]
