Blogette #11: A Return to the Theater

It had been 476 days since I last set foot in a West End Theater. And now I know a lot of you are thinking, “and?I’ve been to the theaters once ever in my life.” Or maybe some of you are thinking good, I hate the theater. And honestly, to each his own. but I…

Blogette #9: Snowdonia Alpacas

The rain came down softly but persistently as I stepped out of the car in my orange Hunter Wellies. It had been raining all morning but that wasn’t going to stop us on this adventure. We had arrived at a small farm in Wales to walk Alpacas! Gayle, the owner of Snowdonia Alpacas met us…

Blogette # 8: Spectacular Sunday Brunch at Heritage London

Whew, what a year. But we’re officially into fall and with the ability to do a some more local things, I think this is a good time to resume my blogette writing. Today, I want to tell you about the SPECTACULAR brunch we had this weekend at Heritage Restaurant on Regent Street in London. Rewind…

Blogette #7: In Search of Nessie

Long fascinated with mysteries like the Loch Ness Monster, I knew that seeing the loch with my own eyes some day needed to happen. When we planned our trip through Scotland this Christmas break, we made sure to stop by Loch Ness to, hopefully, say hi to Nessie. Days before we actually stood on the…

Blogette #6: The Launch of Humphrey and Me Design

Way back when we lived in the states I was a graphic designer for a conservation consulting firm working on government contracts. And while I am loving the travel and blogging, I am missing creating. Over the past year I’ve done freelance work here and there but I am craving more. So I’ve decided to…

Blogette #5: A night at the symphony and an ode to my father.

Saturday night Tim and I had the opportunity to attend our very first symphony. Now, I know it isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but I love classical music for so many reasons. It’s great to listen to while I write, it’s calming, it’s beautiful to dance ballet to and most of all, it fills me…

Blogette #4: Getting lost in Venice

You’re going to get lost in Venice, just accept it and enjoy it. This was the advice I remember most from reading Rick Steve’s book on the floating city. And while my overconfidence in my map reading skills lead me to be dubious about this advice, it proved to be 100% correct. You WILL get…

Blogette #3 – A night at the Globe

During a summer AP English course with Mr. Stamford (my favorite high school teacher), I encountered my love of Shakespeare. Though I had read Romeo and Juliet earlier in my schooling, it wasn’t until encountering Mr. Stamford and his amazing method of teaching that I fell in love with Shakespeare and his plays. Since then,…

Blogette #2 – An anxious traveller in Milan

Sometimes, I am able to do semi-solo travel when I’m with Tim for his work trips. But often, due to my GAD and C-PTSD, it is very limited. In places like Edinburgh, a small big city, I am very comfortable. But when it comes to traveling alone in a new large city, I like to…
