A whirlwind trip to Milan

In November, my friend  and I did a quick weekend trip to Milan. The best thing about Milan is that it is a quick flight from London (less than 1.5 hours), and if you book far in advance, you can buy airfares for £65 per person!

We had a great time eating and shopping. We woke up when we felt like, ate a 3 course breakfast and then walked through the streets of Milan as if we had all the time in the world! Continue reading “A whirlwind trip to Milan”

Merry Christmas from London

Merry Christmas everyone! I hope that you had an amazing time with family and friends wherever you are in the world.

We spent Christmas in London this year with our London family – our good friends Lilian and Andrew. We enjoyed a hearty Christmas feast, good conversation, followed by a 2 hour episode of Downton Abbey! Love it! I really wish I could have lived in that century for just a little while.

We celebrated New Years Eve in Berlin this year. Berlin was a quick flight from London so many of my friends flew in especially for New Years Eve and flew out on New Years Day. It was well worth the effort. Continue reading “New Years Eve 2012 in Berlin: Happy New Year!”

Dare devil rides and merry-go-rounds

Do you like dare-devil rides? Roller coasters, water rides and twisty turvy rides?! I do! My friend celebrated her birthday in Thorpe park this weekend and we joined her on the adventure.

We started out all smiles with relatively empty stomachs so that we could scream and squirm our way through every single roller coaster in the park! Continue reading “Dare devil rides and merry-go-rounds”
