Coombe Abbey and last day in Liverpool

Click Picture for Gallery Oh no! What? You mean it’s over?? Well, had a little breakfast this morning and then got checked out of Coombe Abbey. Met up with Nick and Soraya in the lobby and got the cars packed. It’s raining outside but softly. We went for a walk in the large park area […]

Coombe Abbey, Warwickshire & Stratford-upon-Avon

Click Picture for Gallery So today was the big secret day. I wasn’t supposed to know what was going on but as soon as you arrive at Coombe Abbey they make it pretty apparent that there’s an *award winning medeaval banquet* that goes on here. I tried averting my eyes but it was pretty obvious […]

Warwick Castle and Coombe Abbey

Click Picture for Gallery Today was quite fun. Got up and headed out to the middle of the country to the town of Warwickshire. First to visit Warwick Castle. Ooooooo castle. Lots of interesting things including a long bow demonstration. Good show, then we walked through the castle and up to the top of one […]

Windermere and Blackpool

Click Picture for Gallery Had to get checked out of the hotel this morning so had some breakfast and then packed up. Back to Liverpool tonight. But not without some adventures first. We drove down to the bottom end of Windermere and went to the same place we picked up the ship the day before […]

Windermere – The Lake District

Click Picture for Gallery Today we hung about Windermere the whole day and just enjoyed the lake. We had to catch the ferry across the lake to catch the larger ship that goes up the length of the lake. We were headed to the halfway point of Bowness for lunch and then catch the ship […]

Lytham St. Annes to Windermere

Click Picture for Gallery Today we had breakfast at the hotel. Continental, but it was pretty well stocked with everything you need to get ya going. And it did and we were off! First to St. Annes for some shopping and met up with Veronica and Rick for some light snacks. Then we were off […]

Lytham St. Annes

Click Picture for Gallery Day Three… and I think jet lag has finally released its evil grip on me. I’m yawning all day but it’s good. So this morning got up and had some breakfast and just kinda relaxed a bit. Met up with Soraya and Nick. I got to beat Soraya at Wii Tennis […]

Formby Beach

Oh hey! Day two! Look at that! Already? Where does the time go? Got up this morning and did some site seeing around sleepy little Liverpool. Sunday morning, where is everybody? Quite a change from the night before. Checked out the cathedral and walked around it for a bit. So now we’re off to Formby, […]

Arrival in Liverpool

A long day awaits me. I woke up this morning and went to work as normal, but with the added stress of knowing I wasn’t going to get back to the house if I forgot anything. My flight wasn’t until 9:30pm so I just had to get there a few hours before. No big deal […]

Los Angeles to Liverpool

Ok, so, there’s this place, right? It’s called Liverpool. That’s in England dontcha know? And there’s a rather fantastical girl who lives there. Well, I’m going to go visit her. Shut up! I heard that! If I get around to posting this week there will probably be some rather silly photos of two goofballs with […]

London to Paris

Today’s a travel day so it should be mellow. We checked out of the hotel at noon after sitting in a Starbucks this morning.

Bath is Beautiful

After the Stonehenge moment I was happy to finally get out to Bath, which is a beautiful town.

Behold The Awesomeness

O2 Wireless Festival Hyde Park

GOGOL BORDELLO JUST RULED THE DAY! They were so awesome I loved every minute they were on stage.

Dear Mom, Cadavers are Cool.

Dear Mom,I went to an exhibit today that you would consider to be a house of horrors. I found it terribly interesting.

Random London Wanderings

Things I learned today, Beefeaters really did eat beef, police “Bobbies” got their name from police chief “Robert”, Guy Fawkes real name was Guido Fawkes, Henry the VIII was pretty much an idiot, the London Eye is not for the claustrophobic, the Thames still has eels as I saw a bird eating one, I still laugh at the unfortunate street named “Cockspur”, I just laughed writing that, hands down Harrod’s hires the most insanely beautiful women, I kind miss all the pigeon’s at Trafalger Square, Star of India might be a good place to eat but it doesn’t open at 5pm.


Played tourist today and just traveled around the city taking in some sights. Hopped on and off the bus until lunch when we hit Nando’s in Soho.

Def Leppard & Cheap Trick at The Hammersmith Apollo

Aw yeah… Rock Rock ’til you drop!

European Vacation 2003

[IRELAND] [LONDON] [BARCELONA] [PRAGUE] Finally finished all the photos and videos for the trip to Europe last Oct/Nov 2003. Ireland, London, and Prague have little video clips I shot along the way to get a vibe. Prague is quite extensive, while Barcelona is quite short as I was only there a few days. You can […]
