Tower of London and Borough Market

Papa brought us Cronuts to Tower of London.  They were Lemon flavored.  I think the cronut has lost its magic.  it was good, but not great.   Our favorite parts were the weapons room and the Crown Jewels.  The kids love the legend of the Ravens.  As long as the ravens stay at the Tower, it…

Windsor, Stonehenge and Bath

We splurged on a tour to Windsor, Stonehenge and Bath because we thought it would save us a lot of time and hassle in seeing these three places.  Well…that wasn’t exactly the case.  We had the meanest tour guide EVER and we were rushed through every single site. It started in Windsor.  The tour had left…

Bike Tour of London

Our day began at St Paul’s Cathedral. It’s such a beautiful building! But we had quite the adventure to get there. We took the train form Clapham Junction and then needed to transfer to the Underground at Victoria Station.

Rusty here. Our apartment was right in the middle of the beginning of the more residential area of Rome. Just east of the Colosseum and a fair ways east of the old downtown area. Our apartment was far better than our Paris apartment, but it was quite strange. It was one corridor with a 90…

Vatican Museums and Colosseum

Monday morning we got up kind of early because we wanted to eat at Campo di’Fiori Market before we went over to Vatican City.  Our third country of the trip 🙂 We took the bus, the very packed bus, which means we started our day on our feet – and would pretty much stay on…

A miserable day at the airport

We woke up at 6am in Paris to our phones buzzing telling us our 10am flight to Rome had been cancelled and we’d been rebooked to a 3pm flight. There was an air traffic controller strike somewhere else in France.  Bummer.  We had to check out at 11 so we decided to head to the…
