    Travel: Eurostar London to Paris

    Eurostar London to Paris is well worth checking out. The trip itself is just over 2 hours and 30 minutes. Plus, unlike going to the airport for an international flight, you only have to show up 60-45 minutes beforehand. Leaving you far more time to visit London or Paris. The last awesome part of travelling by train – your drop-off and pick-up points are in the city centre. Not hours away at an airport. Eurostar First – keep you eye on Eurostar’s site – that’s…

    Travel: 4 Days in London

    4 days in London – that’s right, this past September we ventured over the pond as people sometimes call it and spend 4 days in London and 4 days in Paris, coupled with a couple of travel days for an awesome 10 day trip. So – where to start? First, we got a great deal on flights. I used Hopper this time, but didn’t buy directly from them. Instead I used the app to keep track of flight prices. Once that was done, I did…

    Travel: London Sights

    London sights – this city has so much to offer, from museums and monuments, to even iconic items like red double decker busses. If you’ve been following along, you know I’ve shared quite a bit from our time in London this September. Here are just a few photos of sights that didn’t get their own post – and a list of all the London sights worth visiting. London Sights The Globe Theatre – we didn’t make it in for the tour, but checked it out…

    Travel: Buckingham Palace

    Buckingham Palace – my oh my, it is the best sight to see in London. Even if you’re not hugely into the Royal Family, the architecture, the history, and the stories you’ll hear on the self guided tour are worth it. Bryce and I watch The Crown, and Victoria on PBS – so visiting Buckingham Palace State Rooms is just too cool. When the building was built there obviously wasn’t electricity – yet you can see the conduit added after. It’s cleverly covered in the…

    Travel: Qbic Hotel

    The Qbic Hotel in London is a sweet little place that’s reasonably priced and close to the tube. They market themselves as a eco-sustainable hotel, which is important in this day and age. Check out their site for more info. Qbic Hotel In the lobby you’ll notice a huge open space – they have a restaurant and bar. We found it over priced for the quality of the food, so we never ate there. Yet, I love the lobby bathroom – such creativity in design.…

    Travel: Victoria and Albert Museum

    The Victoria and Albert Museum in London. Oh my goodness, this place is massive and so awesome! Jewelry, furniture, and dinnerware were my favourite exhibits – and photography. Silly me, I initially thought that the museum would be all about Victoria and Albert. We really like them and enjoy watching Victoria on PBS – such a great show. So, in looking back, I should have put it together – they loved of the arts, thus an epic museum to hold all items that are representative…

    Travel: Michelin House

    Michelin House is the home to Claude Bosi’s restaurant, Bibendum and it’s worth the visit. The building, the stained glass, and the atmosphere are all in balance with the service, and the food. Oh, the food! Classically French dishes served in a modern and thoughtful way is what Bibendum is about. I’m not usually a chatty with the server when we’re at restaurants – Bryce and I enjoy each other’s company and we usually know what to expect. Yet here, there were so many new…
