Stuck on the Autobahn

Snow in Germany is absolutely gorgeous. Everything looks like a winter wonderland. Still, it has it’s drawbacks (such as getting stuck on the autobahn for 3 hours). Nevertheless, it made for a great photo opportunity. Hope you enjoy- Advertisements

Stille Nacht

  There is a story that in 1914, in the midst of World War I, fighting stopped on the Western Front for one day. A Christmas truce between the Germans and the Brits. They laid down their weapons, put up trees, and the Germans sang the beloved carol, “Stille Nacht”. The song is “Silent Night”…

London: In Review

Before heading back to the airport, we stopped at Planet Hollywood to grab some lunch. There was a bunch of cool film stuff in there, handprints and kisses from famous actors. The atmosphere made me feel like I was back in the States for a little while, which was nice.   The best thing about…

London: Bond in Motion

The London Film Museum is currently hosting the Bond in Motion exhibition. It is the largest collection of 007 paraphernalia in the world. So many beautiful cars. Aston Martins, with built in weapon and missile systems. The only disappointment was that I couldn’t sit inside one. They also had a bunch of props and scripts…

London: The East End

  Wicked at the Apollo Victoria Theatre was astounding. It was my first time seeing the production, and the story line was a bit different than I had expected, but very enjoyable¬†all the same. A beautiful set. Lovely costumes. Dancing, singing, and acting were all first class. Our seats were center stage, seven rows back….

London: Winter Wonderland

Winter Wonderland at Hyde Park. I was expecting pretty decorations and a modest Christmas Market like others I’ve seen. Man oh man, did I underestimate them. It was enormous! It just kept going and going and going. Line upon line of booths selling food and Christmas trinkets among other things. Then in the middle of…

The Park Bench

The Park Bench by Kim Lindquist He saw her there everyday. And everyday he’d lean up against the old oak tree, pretending to read the paper, but really just stealing glances. Long, chocolate-colored hair. He imagined it smelled as sweet as it looked. Her eyes were the same warm brown, glittering with intelligence. Lips as…

London: Baker Street

  Have I mentioned that I’m a big BBC fan? Of Moffat’s work in particular. Well, being in London I couldn’t very well pass up an opportunity to check out the Sherlock Holmes Museum. Located at 221B Baker Street, it occupies the exact spot that Doyle wrote of in his original detective stories. It is…

London: Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre

If you know me, you know that I LOVE William Shakespeare. He is my favorite playwright hands down. So of course, my favorite part of my trip to London was visiting the Globe Theatre.   When we arrived, we had about twenty minutes to look around the museum before starting the tour. It went through…

London: The Hobbit World Premiere

December 1st 2014 in the heart of Leicester Square (pronounced: “lester”). Crews and crowds of people were bustling around, setting up for the World Premiere of The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies, the epic conclusion to the Hobbit Trilogy, and to the entire Lord of the Rings Franchise. As well as the conclusion to…

London: The Underground

It was like a scene from a movie. Doors open to a black morning sky, mist hanging low to the ground, the noisy engines create a wind that whips your hair behind you. You clutch your carry-on as you brace the cold, ascending the steps into the plane. One nice thing about living in Europe…
