Valluga, St. Anton am Arlberg

I originally wanted to post about St. Anton first. When I sat down to write, all I could think about was the highlight of our trip – skiing Valluga. I will share the details of our trip soon, but first, Valluga. To appreciate how incredible an experience this was for me,…

Things to do in London: Junkyard Golf Club

One of the best things about living in a city as large as London is that there is something here for everyone. You can find pretty much any food you can think of or class or activity. People who live here come from all over the world, and it reflects…

London Day Trip: Stonehenge and Salisbury

With so much to see, do, discover, learn, eat and drink in London, there are times when I almost forget that there is a whole wide, green, new (to me) country out there to discover! In the five months we’ve lived here, we’ve only left London without leaving the country…

As we approached, equally…

Black Rock Bar London

I’ll state the obvious – London is a huge city. With so many people and so many places to go, dine, learn, etc. London is a city where there may just be something for everyone. If you happen to be a whisk(e)y lover, that place is Black Rock. I figured somewhere…
