We’ve been back in reality-land for over a month now and I can honestly say it feels like it all happened at least two years ago. Funny how jumping across large oceans and visiting foreign parts can do that to you. It’s all a little surreal.

If you thought the fish obsession was bad, hang onto your hats. You are about to embark on a mystical magical tour of the rooftops of England and Scotland. For some reason, seeing modern signs of convenience (like antennas and … Continue reading →
Well, here is the first of many signs that I may have a slight case of OCD. For some reason that I cannot explain, I seem to have an abundance of photos of, you guessed it, fish. I am going … Continue reading →
I’ve been to London to visit the Queen. Well, we tried, but there was some misunderstanding and we couldn’t get past the multitudes at the gates… So… we had a stroll through St. James’ Park and saw some birds and … Continue reading →

London has been a whirlwind, and we have covered the length of it at least once. I would say the breadth as well, but I don’t think we’d have the stamina. We ended up going to the Natural History Museum … Continue reading →
