Travel // A Day Trip to...Bath Spa

Bath Spa Cathedral

Bath Spa

Pulteney Bridge, Bath Spa

Meeting up with a girlfriend took me to the beautiful historic city of Bath Spa. Nestled in the West Country about a two and a half hour train journey from London Paddington, Bath is an absolute gem. 258 more words


Bunting at Victoria Station

I went walking in London last week. Normally, I avoid long walks on pavements like the plague, for they play havoc with my back. But London fascinates me and I don’t feel the pain until after I’ve stiffened up on the train journey back home. 582 more words


The Tiger in the Smoke

I had forgotten just how much I liked Margery Allingham’s writing, though not how much I enjoyed her stories. As always, the class accents trouble me, but Campion is more a mockery of Sayers’ Lord Peter Whimsey (though I confess I enjoy those too) and these books are rather more self-aware of their station. 562 more words


A layover in London

We left Dallas August 7, so our day technically began at 6:30am on that day. We had one international flight and a 10-hr layover in London, we made it (barely) to our flight to Romania on Saturday night, after 32 hours straight with no sleep. 114 more words

That London

Without fail, when you mention London, someone will say: “Oh that London. So dirty, so busy, so noisy, it’s too big, everyone is in such a hurry, no one smiles, there are too many people and everyone is fighting each other when they’re not blowing each other up, then there’s the everyday crime, what about the crime, you just don’t feel safe, do you? 641 more words
