Even virtual travel must sometimes be cut short. And alas, this is one of those times. I had fun pretending to be in England this month. Not much of what I did lent itself to blogging so I apologize for the lack of postings. I did however end up with two-story ideas that I'm working … Continue reading A few days early.
And yet I still find bits of writing running through my head. Oh for sure, being in the shadow of Big Ben earlier today while on a walking tour of downtown London, then another wonderful night with Dom, you'd think I'd have come back to my rental and fallen into a dream filled sleep. But … Continue reading Midnight and I’m thinking of vampires
I've discovered a phenomenon here in the UK of which I was not aware. The sun's been coming up a little before five AM each morning, and not setting until after nine at night. I've had over 16 hours of daylight every day since I got here and you know what? I LOVE IT! Mind … Continue reading It’s 3:20 in the morning…
Alright, to catch you up before I head off to bed. Kathrine scored me a ticket to the England v Belgium soccer match yesterday. I was cheering for Belgium because between the two countries, Belgium sits closest to Germany which is where I was born (and next on my list of 30 day tours). Anyway, … Continue reading Jet lag finally caught up with me.
Almost 6:30 AM. Just getting in. Kathrine and her friends are great. That club was huge and of course, Paul Oakenfield was guest deejaying. I LOVE him. And as if Katherine wasn't already cool, she got me a ticket to the England v. Belgium football (just love hearing the guys say that) match later today. … Continue reading And I thought we partied hard in the States…
OMG! I’m not even sure where to begin. I mean…WOW. First off, the flight was totally mellow. The food on international flights is delish. I, of course, fell instantly asleep after eating. Having not slept the night before helped tremendously. I woke up about seven this morning, that would be 2:00 AM, EST. We were … Continue reading Bloody Hell (stolen from a fav British movie)
I’m nervous. Not because of the adventure I’m about to have, but because I don’t like to fly and in about eight hours, I’m going to be on a long flight. When I say long, I mean friggin’ eight and a half hours long. In an airplane. Thirty some odd THOUSAND feet above the Earth. … Continue reading Getting ready to leave.
It's that Bass Ackwards / Leap of Faith thing at work again. I haven't thought much about this since the last post, but just this morning, I decided I'm going to take my "virtual" leave of absence to London, England after all. As you read the coming month's posts, I want you to suspend reality along … Continue reading Last minute travel
30 Days in London So, the dream was to have packed it all in, having made enough money to leave the states behind for a thirty-day “vacation” in London, UK. I was going to find a quaint little flat just outside the city proper (to help cut down on cost) and then spend my time … Continue reading How Crazy is This?
