Expat Thanksgiving

Holiday's away from home by yourself can be lonely. Thankfully I got to enjoy all the fun of Thanksgiving with my family, but without any of the calories!

Covent Garden Christmas

London celebrated my two-month residency with a festival — full of mulled wine and Christmas lights... someone must have told them of my love of wine and Christmas. ;)

Any who, I thought I'd take y'all along for the evening!... enjoy!

I think everyone knows Paris is always a good idea, but Paris with your cousin in autumn is an magnifique idea!

It was a whirlwind trip — for me. I had only 36-ish hours in the city of love and I needed to embrace every moment of it! While the bookends of the trip were a little rough, needless to say (you'll learn about that in part 2!) the entire trip was absolutely amazing.

Keep Calm and Camden On

Next up: Camden Town!

I'm joined by fellow American Melissa as we explore this quirky little place.

Princes and Castles and Stuff

It's been a while!

I've hit - and surpassed - my one-month mark, which is crazy to believe! It honestly feels like I've been here for ages.

Probably because I have been so busy with everything!

But I finally took some time to have a one-sided chat with you to fill you in on everything that's been going on!

We're So American

 Exploring the city has become the only plans I make at the week end.

This excursion ended up being myself, along with two fellow brunette Americans, and the two of them both wearing denim jackets, what are the odds! It took a lot of will power to stay away from the water, a place I gravitate towards any chance I get... We were a mere two blocks away but I resisted!

I'm positive we looked mega touristy, considering we almost got hit by cars a number of times, carried a London travel book, and stopped at a touristy souvenir shop.
