A Gifted Evening

Last night, I was one of about 15 bloggers that were welcomed by the folks over at Gifted on Dartmouth Street in the South End to participate in an event called “Meet the Makers” thanks to Jen from Boston Bachelorette, Olives & Grace and Blog and Tweet Boston.  Basically the idea behind the evening was to connect bloggers with the makers of things – their work ranged from lampwork beads, bronze and clay jewelry, delicious macarons, local wines, and the ‘world’s first premium cold brewed tea’.  As someone who is also a ‘maker of things’ running the gamut from jewelry to ...

Finch au France – Part I

The first of my photos from France – I had a wonderful time, I absolutely loved all of the museums, I easily could’ve spent the entire time sketching in the museums all over Paris. The weather wasn’t terrific, at one point, the winds were so fierce, they were knocking people over along the Seine! I went to cafés and sat on the sidewalk with a glass of wine, I saw some of the most beautiful works of art I’ve ever seen in my life and I walked close to 10 miles a day each day in Paris, it was amazing.

Across Scotland

These are photos from the Scottish leg of my trip – I spent a night in Edinburgh that was marked by a wonderful reunion and buckets of rain pouring down, then headed off with my friend, Claire, to drive across Scotland through the thickest fog I have ever seen in my entire life. We wandered around Inverness before heading up to Ullapool to catch a ferry across The Minch to get to the Outer Hebrides. We drove across the Isles of Lewis and Harris, saw blackhouses, the wildest landscapes I’ve ever seen in my life (lots of firsts on this ...

Littlest in London

Today was my last full day in London – I’ve got the morning tomorrow, then I’ll be back in London for 2 days in the beginning of June, but now it’s off to Liverpool for me and on to the next adventure. Had a wonderful few days in London, caught up with some friends who were counselors with me at a summer camp, including Jen, who was lovely enough to let me stay with her while I was here in London, at her flat with her fiancé. Plus, they humoured me with all my ridiculous questions about how to pronounce ...

London Calling

I arrived in London midday on Friday after a late flight from Boston on Thursday night. The flight first went to Reykjavik, where I was surrounded by a bunch of Boston twenty and thirty-something men on their way to Iceland for a bachelor party. They’d started drinking well before we boarded the plane, so needless to say, it was not a fun flight. Also, landing in Iceland? Terrifying and really disorienting! When the sky, ocean and land are impossible to distinguish, I imagine it’s a bit what purgatory is like. No thank you! I was only in Iceland for about ...
