We visited Windsor Castle. I took tons of photos and decided to split them in two posts to not overload. The Queen was home (you can see the royal standard), and photos are also not allowed in the castle. Here’s the first batch.
St. Paul’s was the first stop in our long day of London sightseeing. I originally planned to attend services here as this was a Sunday morning, but this was the only time on the trip I managed to get more than 6 hours of sleep. #whoops. Photos aren’t allowed in the cathedral itself, but you […]
One of the most iconic sites in London is Tower Bridge. After our foray in the actual Tower of London, we were at the bridge during photography’s golden hour. The light was perfect, so I snapped tons of photos from several vantage points.
Our first full day in London, we toured the Tower of London. We arrived close to the end of the day, so we hopped on the last official Beefeater tour. If you decide to visit, definitely try to do a Beefeater tour. The Beefeaters are very well-trained and knowledgeable about everything you could possible think […]
Over spring break, my graduate program went on a study abroad trip to Europe. We traveled with EF Study Abroad. Overall, we didn’t have the best experience with our tour guide, to say the least, but we still had a fun trip. We started off in London, took the Eurostar to Paris, and then finished […]
The job search these days is a long and arduous process. For most of us, gone are the days of mailing out unsolicited resumes, getting calls for multiple interviews, and picking your best option from several job offers. Several members of my graduate program cohort and I are still in the throes of finding a job, even with […]
I don’t know about y’all, but I love sending and receiving real paper mail. A nice card is a way to brighten up weeks of junk mail, credit card solicitations, and catalogues I get even though I have no idea why. I love sending moving announcements and picking out new designs whenever we move. For […]
We have moved back to Augusta, Georgia, where we lived for six months in 2013. This will be the second city I’ve lived in a second time (Colorado Springs is the first) and the third state I’ve repeated (Virginia, Colorado, and Georgia). Moving back to somewhere we’ve lived before can be an interesting experience, and […]
In the world of cross-country moves, things don’t always go as planned and you may find yourself living in a hotel. We spent about a week in a hotel once we arrived in Augusta, and it was an interesting experience. Bring your own stuff (soap, toiletries, towels, pillows, etc.). I don’t know about y’all, but […]
Our stuff was delivered a day early on Wednesday (hallelujah!), so we’ve been unpacking ever since. All of the boxes are empty, and the movers came back to pick them up on Friday. It’s easier to handle each room when you have no boxes to fight with. I prefer to unpack everything first, so I […]
