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.


England in film: Pride and Prejudice

One of my absolute favourite England movie moments:
Pride and Prejudice (2005)

I literally get lost in this scene
every single time I see it.

It's filmed at Stanage Edge in Derbyshire.
I haven't been there yet,
but I will...someday.

I can't decide if seeing my favourite city on the TV every day for several weeks is going to be exciting and comforting or heartbreaking and frustrating. I have already decided, however, that I'm glad I don't have to deal with the melee and the crowds of the games. London just wouldn't be right with so many people about, and rush hour on the Tube is irritating enough already.

The one exception, however, is the Opening Ceremony. I would love to magically appear in East London for that show and quickly leave as soon as it was over.

Haven't we invented teleportation yet?
