Happy Friday Bloglandia! In case you missed it in your WordPress Reader, Episode 7 of The Book Owl Podcast hit the air waves...or rather the pod waves yesterday. Although Episode 6, in which I took listeners to the moon with some Fake News, is my favorite episode so far, this one is a close second. … Continue reading The British Library Birthday Bash — The Book Owl Podcast
It's with a tear in my eye that this is the last of my London posts. And, as we wanted to make the most of our quickly dwindling moments in London, Mr. Husband and I took advantage of a night at the museum...no, not the Ben Stiller movie, although you may find a familiar face … Continue reading The London Trip Is Over?! No!!!!!!
It may sound crazy, but you really can take a day trip to Venice while you're in London. Okay, it's just Little Venice - a neighborhood in the northern bit of London - and may not be as famous as its Italian namesake, but it was still worth a little excursion while Mr. husband and … Continue reading Day Tripping to Italy from London
My original plan of covering the London Trip in only three blog posts seems to have failed. Ah well, it's next to impossible to not go on and on about such a terrific city. Today we head to the south side of London for some strolling, some shopping, and some Shakespeare-ing. The Making of This … Continue reading Making My Shakespearian Debut in London
Okay, okay, that title should be "Crossing the Line in Greenwich," but "Crossing the Line in London" appeals more to my alliteration-loving sensibilities. During our recent trip to London, Mr. Husband and I seemed to be making up for all the things we wanted to do last time (way back in 2013), but couldn't manage to squeeze … Continue reading Crossing the Line in London
Okay, first off, let's get our words in order. London is a marvelous city....note the lowercase "c" on city. But The City of London is also pretty cool...note the capital "C" this time. What's the difference? The city of London means the city as a whole, whereas The City of London is a section of London. … Continue reading A City Day in London
Since I couldn't convince the Queen to let me shack up in a room in Buckingham Palace, I'm back home from London. That means my only way of pretend I'm back in the big city is to share my trip with you. Even though I have SOOO much to show and tell, I'll try to keep this … Continue reading London is a Walk in the Park
That's right, I've made it all the way around the sun yet again (and yes, Bono and I do share the same birthday, which for some reason is a bit of trivia I love to brag about)! As if being another year older isn't depressing enough, my vacation is over and I've returned with no … Continue reading Happy Birthday to Me…Now What?!
Well, the weather here Portland isn't exactly get-out-in-the-garden weather, but that's no reason to not continue on our virtual garden tour of Kew Gardens situated just a short Tube hop away from the heart of London. The previous two weeks, we've roamed around Kew's Palm House and the other glass houses that are pretty impressive, but … Continue reading Travel Pic Thursday – Kew Gardens Part Three (UK)
