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.

Signs of Anglophelia

I miss polite British apologies for...well, everything.



I miss irreverent British humour, even in warning signs.



I miss product names like Utterly Butterly.

Lisa E, have you read 'Imagined London' by Anna Quindlen? She to is am American anglophile, and in the book, she tours all(and i mean all) of the places in London she read about in the classics as she grew up.
It is an amazing book!

I've picked it up a time or two. Perhaps I should open it next time!
