  • This is not how I was expecting to spend my two year anniversary

    And this is not the blog post I planned to write.  April 2, 2020 marks the anniversary of quitting my job, selling my home, and traveling for two years.  I’d planned to announce that, after much dithering, I had decided to end (or at least pause) my nomadic ways and move to Munich.  I would speak of celebrations with my…

  • Gazing Over My Cuppa Tea

After a wonderful but uncharacteristically chilly and rainy stay in Germany, I told the homeowners that I was looking forward to going to England for some warmth and sunshine. I said…

People are friendly and have awesome accents. Despite popular opinion, I…

  • We arrive at Lovely Arundel castle

    After a harrowing drive, we arrived in the town of Arundel which was much quainter and pretty than Southampton where I work 45 minutes away.  The castle is very well preserved and still inhabited by its family.  Here’s a photo I took on the walk up to the castle.

  • Driving (or riding!) in England is scary

    My last European adventure began with my director renting a car in Heathrow and me navigating us South to Arundel castle which a coworker had recommended that none of us had ever heard of.  I was especially excited because the day we were going to be there was a smugglers and pirates festival. We hit the road and my director…
