Tis the season to eat everything in sight, especially warm things as the weather has taken a turn for the FREEZING here recently (and there’s a bunch of snow out my window right now). When winter rolls around, there’s nothing that Guy loves more than pie. That is all he…
In a country seemingly full of places that look the same (sometimes I feel like once I’ve seen one English countryside village, I’ve seen them all), the Lake District stands out as one of our favorite places to getaway. It’s a four to five hour drive from London, making it…
Thorpeys-Fish-and-Chips-Review
If you’re into fish and chips, American-style diners, or bright roadside signs, you’re going to want to read this Thorpey’s Fish and Chips review where I tell the story of how one freezing cold November night in the middle of nowhere guided us to this awesome English experience. So a…
Over the years I’ve spent in London, I’ve taken part in quite a few different Christmas traditions. We’ve been to Hyde Park’s Winter Wonderland, Christmas at Kew, and generally spent multiple hours fighting our way through horrendous crowds on Oxford Street to see the twinkling lights for about ten seconds…

November Rain Poncho front
This past month, England has been living up to its ‘rainy’ stereotype and blessing us all with loads of water falling from the sky while we’re just trying to live our lives. I have to admit to being incredibly annoyed by this, as I’m used to massive Florida thunderstorms that…
If you’ve just  come out from under the rock you’ve been hiding under, you might not know that Harry Potter and the Cursed Child tickets are some of the hardest seats to get in London right now (and have been since they were released). If you’ve been paying a modicum…
So, to start this review off with a confession, I’m just going to say that I cannot stand cooking. I can see why other people like cooking. I get that it can be creative and fun and a self-esteem boost when you come up with an amazing new recipe. But…
