October 10, 2022 It was a bit rough waking up this morning, Lauren said I talked in my sleep and when my alarm went off for the first time apparently I said “noooo” out loud! Anyway, after getting showered and dressed we had to pack our stuff up! We are heading to Inverness today!! But... Continue Reading →
Go Pack, noooooo!!
October 9, 2022 My day started very early this morning, my alarm was set for 330, but I woke up at 3am, so excited to go see my Packers in London! Lauren was not as excited about my early departure, but thankfully I think I was able to be quiet enough to keep her sleeping. ... Continue Reading →
He got a PhD to give free tours!
October 8, 2022 Today we had to get up a bit early, 6am, for a 630am leave to get to Edinburgh. It, of course, was dark when we left and we learned pretty quickly that nothing is open at 630 in the morning, or 7 or 8 for that matter. After a good search (attempt,... Continue Reading →

We got up earlier than breakfast today so we could walk around town since we didnt get here until basically it was closed for the night yesterday. On our way out we asked to move breakfast to 10 so we could stop at the bone church (wooohoo) BEFORE we ate. They had an opening, so... Continue Reading →
Gibraltar!! We are HERE!
This morning we started out with breakfast on the roof at our little B&B - it was pre-plated for us, so we just took what we wanted from each other's plates. I had two hard boiled eggs, grilled cheese sandwich and some water. Chris has ham and cheese sandwich, watermelon and some tea. After breakfast... Continue Reading →
The most beautiful gem
Friday, August 16 I slept in today because I was so exhausted from yesterday. Its crazy how traveling can where you out – even though I am just sitting there on a train watching my tablet. I need to get better at wearing my blue light glasses, because it really does help. The cleaning lady... Continue Reading →
Thursday, August 15 I had to get up at a reasonable time today to pack up and head to the train station – because I am going to Buchs, Switzerland! I was texting with my friend Heidi and she mentioned her dad loved Liechtenstein – so I thought well I should go there! I couldn’t... Continue Reading →
