I'm a 37-year old Seattle girl who was bitten by the travel bug on my first tour of Europe in 2004. This personal blog follows my attempts to visit as many countries as I can, as often as my budget will allow. Since starting this blog in 2007, I've also worked as a freelance copywriter for an online travel publication. This only served to add even more must-see locations to my already extended list.
Follow me as I try to balance "real life" with exploring the world, all while trying to conquer a wickedly ironic case of homesickness.


The Telectroscope

How did I miss this? It seems, several months ago, there were enormous telescopes next to both London's Tower Bridge and NYC's Brooklyn Bridge, designed specifically so people on both sides can see and silently communicate with each other. Googling "telectrosope" will take you to many humourous stories of New Yorkers and Londoners (and most likely a whole lotta geeky tourists like myself) engaging each other nearly 4000 miles apart. I also think there's something really cool about giving people this new perspective of others, as well.

And seeing that our early 2009 travel list includes both NYC and a return to London, I wish it would have remained for another run. I really would have liked to mess about with that. Oh well...

Yes how did you miss this! I blogged about it in June and thought it was so amazing, sadly it wasn't permanent!
