London to Paris – August 11th 2017 We left Tooting and made our way to the train station to check/drop our bags off with the luggage hold. We had a few hours to kill before our train to Paris and had one more sight we wanted to see. Borough Market! We happened upon it the...

London – August 10th 2017 Our last adventure day in the city started fairly early. This was for the simple fact that our 48 hour hop on hop off tour technically expired around 11am. So as long as we got on the bus before the expiring time we could stay on as long as we...

Stonehenge & Swimming – August 7th 2017 What is a split day? I just made it up. But we actually did split up and do two separate activities on this day. Activity number one was swimming at the neighborhood pool. Activity two was taking a tour to Stonehenge. Any guesses on how the split went?...

I wish I was Mary

Edinburgh – August 3rd 2017 Edinburgh Castle had been on my must see list the minute I knew we were going to Scotland. Seeing pictures of this massive Castle sitting above the city drew me right in. I could picture myself there, hundreds of years ago in the stone walls. Thursday was our day to...

Cemeteries are pretty quiet eh

Written on August 2, 2017 in UK

Lanark – August 2nd 2017 I wasn’t exactly thrilled to walk around an old cemetery. I’ve never thought of them to be places to hang out (just like the rest of the worlds population I’m sure). But we were driving to a small town called Lanark to check one out. This was a town where...

I’ll trade you two sick kids for some haggis

Back to Edinburgh – August 1st 2017 So, Oban was a very comfy sleep. The hostels have the most comfy bunks and big warm duvets. I felt like a queen. Perhaps it was because for a couple days, I had been sharing a double bed with an 8 and 12 year old…another story, another day....
