Hello Lovelies! It’s officially February now, which means I can now say “I am going to England and Scotland this month!” Our itinerary is shaping up quite nicely, but I wanted to put the call out for suggestions for things to do and see in England and Scotland. I lived in Liverpool for a year, and have been to London numerous times, but York and Glasgow will be new adventures for me! Plus, no matter how many times you’ve visited a place, you still haven’t seen everything to be seen, and eaten everywhere there is to eat (I joke that… View Post

I’m a voracious reader. Just look at my 2015 Year in Books on Goodreads. I originally set what I expected to be a challenging, but attainable, goal of 52 books in 2015. I met that goal by the end of May. In my defense, I spent January recovering from my third, and hopefully final, ankle reconstruction surgery, and therefore was on my butt or back 80% of the month, but I also could have spent that month watching crap on Netflix (I did that too). I decided to reset my challenge to 100 books and met that goal by mid-November.… View Post

If you are anything like me, you google “What to pack [location] [month/season]” in the days and weeks leading up to your trip departure.

A friend and I booked flights to Iceland on a whim when Iceland’s most punctual airline, WOW, was running a sale.  $285RT, direct, out of one of our local airports. $285 for a round trip flight to Europe doesn’t even… View Post

As some of you may know, when one lives in a city inundated with tourists year-round, the last thing one wants to do is go check out the touristy things.  As a matter of fact, I only go do touristy things when I’m basically forced to do so by my friends who are visiting from other cities. I avoid the tourists at all costs. I almost never take the Metro from March-October, because visitors don’t know that you may die a violent death if you stand on the left side of the escalators and cause a commuter to miss their… View Post

With only a day to sightsee in St. Louis, we were selective on what things we were going to do.  After spending the morning at the Gateway Arch, and meeting up with friends for lunch, we decided to go to the Anheuser-Busch brewery TO SEE THE HORSIES!! to see how the most popular beer brand is made. We arrived at 2:30pm, but the next available tour wasn’t until 3:45pm, so we had some time to kill. (Pro tip: hit the brewery first thing in the morning if you plan on taking the Complimentary Tour, otherwise you too will experience a… View Post
