Testing a new plug-in, here is London.

Now that flickr has redesigned me out of the picture, I’m going to hopefully be posting things I’m interested in here instead. I’m testing a new plug-in today, and I think it will work! Very exciting for me.

Day 2

We mostly walked all over today – through Covent Gardens, Camden, The City, over the Thames and now are in Shoreditch.

Really love Hoxton Hotel where we are staying today. More on that later.

Did a tour of St Paul’s. Paid our respects to Sir Christopher Wren and William Blake. Brian walked to the top of the dome.

Crossed the Thames on the Millenium bridge.

Look what Hoxton Hotel did for Brian!!

Err….hi

St Paul's Cathedral

It’s been a while. I need to get to the point where I have the app set up on my iPhone so I can write from anywhere. I’m not on my laptop much right now (it’s summer, and I am working and commuting, so hanging out on the laptop is lower on my list).

Lessee, what have I been doing? Hopefully longer stories soon. I flew to Wisconsin for a day to hang out with my sister, and then we drove to Chicago where we caught a plane to Dublin. After Dublin, we took Ulysses (the third largest ferry in Europe) to Holyhead, Wales and then spent a day in Wales. Down through Stratford-upon-Avon and into London. After London, we took the Eurostar through the chunnel (did you know your ears pop constantly?) and headed off to Paris. It was fantastic.

When I got back, I stayed in Chicago and Brian flew in and joined me. We hung out at the Shedd, the Field Museum, the Adler (and he got the Art Institute in as well, lucky guy). We took a great run along Lakeshore (although the humidity almost killed my heat-hating-self). Visited a lot of restaurants I wanted to try or that I missed. I started a new job – two days of training there, and then I flew home on Tuesday night, started my commute and work on Wednesday.

Frontera Grill

It’s been busy. I’m adjusting but my free time has definitely become smaller. More later I hope.
