Oct 16, 2013 - Time to go!

Mavis and I are getting our snuggle time in before I leave. Bags are packed! Had Raul's last night for my last dinner in "the Colonies" and Prince Georgie is anxious for my arrival. I get to Heathrow at noon tomorrow which is 4am our time, then hop a plane to Edinburgh. I have reservations at a cute Italian place Thurs night called Asti. Let the adventure begin! PDX update - bag was only 44lbs. Nice packing Casbow! Minneapolis update - this airport has free iPads for people to use for free. Swanky!

I will be making sure I have everything I need in my bag and ready to roll. I can't wait to get on that airplane, have a glass of wine, chill in my pod and just get to Edinburgh. It's almost here!...

Oct 2, 2013 - 2 weeks to go

In 14 days, I will be in a first class pod on my way across the Atlantic. I have since found out that my friend Barb Steeves will be in London on my last night there. We have reservations at a great restaurant, Rules. The menu looks fabulous! http://www.rules.co.uk/home We are going to meet up for a prefunk at a pub and then head to dinner. I have a ticket to "The Book of Mormon" that night. What a great way to end a trip seeing a friend from home. 14 more sleeps!

Sep 8, 2013 - 38 days until I leave for the motherland

I was with Pearce last night and she said I should do a travel journal while I'm off by myself in England and Scotland. I like the idea so I'm going to give it a shot. I hope you like it and I don't annoy you too much :) With that...g'day mates (oops, wrong country)

Jun 1, 2011 - Week 38 (5/25-5/31):

Week 38 (5/25-5/31): Bullards Beach provided the first of many Oregon lighthouses for us to visit. We spent a beautiful day on the beach, soaking up some sun and building forts out of driftwood in the soft sand. Glorious! M and I managed to find a beautiful bike ride on some deserted back roads, which came to an abrupt end when the road disappeared. So, our expected loop ride became an out-and-back. Given our surroundings, we had a hankerin' for some fish and chips. We didn't make it to the fish market in time in Bandon, so we had to wait...
