Yesterday was our last day in London. Our Oui bus got into our favorite European, very straightforward bus station eyeroll – the Victoria Bus Station at 7AM. We spent the day walking around London re-visiting our favorite dapper monuments and tourist traps. We also found the New Scotland Yard and Harrods – talk about one […]Read More You’re The London Of My Eye!
We summited! On Wednesday we went all the way – 276 meters! up to the third deck of the Effiel Tower. We waited in line for a very long 3 hours. We each drank a Heineken, split a soft pretzel, and took turns going to a secret men’s bathroom…sorry “hommes” of France but when we […]Read More Sacré Bleu!
…in our posts! Here’s a recap of our last two days Tuesday in Paris, France. Tuesday, we woke up bright and early and headed to a bakery that Maggie found, Utopie. Maggie found Utopie on Vogue’s 2019 list of top ten boulangeries in Paris so we knew we had to try it. After doing some pre-noshing […]Read More Please Mind The Gap
Bonjour from Paris, France! Today we left London on a Oui Bus at 7AM. We stayed up all night with our new friend, Glen, in the lobby of the downtown Best Western. The Victoria Coach Station is located just a couple blocks from the BW. As soon as the sun rose, we rolled our tonnage […]Read More The Bus Was CAUGHT!
…And we’re bloody glad! Today we woke up and headed to Haley’s first Yelp pick of the trip – The Dominique Ansel Bakery. The Dominique Ansel Bakery is famous for being the originator of the cronut. A cronut is what would happen if a donut and a croissant met at an English Pub…and you know […]Read More London Bridge Isn’t Falling Down!
Alright mate! You guessed it – We made it to London! Yesterday was our first day here in the UK. We arrived at 10AM local time. Our getting here went very smoothly…besides the fact that our plane was delayed due to mechanical issues several times on the tarmac in Chicago. But this didn’t bother us […]Read More Chi Town to London Town!
…I see two gingers scrambling to plan their summer jaunt across the pond. Bloody long time & no blog – well we think it’s time to bring her back! eh?! This past week we were lucky enough to enjoy our family’s last summer vacation before Henry heads to Columbia, MO to start there as freshmeat […]Read More I see London I see France!
Long time no blog. But here’s a lil short and kinda late update…but DMSP (Doesn’t Matter St. Pat’s) right? 🙂 My friends and I are all juniors at MST this year – so this was our third go at Pat’s. After each one passes it quickly becomes THE BEST EVER and makes us get that much more FIRED […]Read More Best Ever St. Pats 2018

Today, we woke up in Bushmills. We had breakfast at our B&B with a very nice English Couple. Because we’ve been traveling in the “low season,” it was the first time that we had the pleasure of dining with other tourists! Our companions were from Lincoln, England and were very versed travelers – they recently […]Read More “Fee-Fi-Fo-Fum, I Smell the Blood of an Irishman”
