Kevin & Jeff's Excellent Adventure

A travel blog entry by jeffsaunders3


"A man travels the world in search of what he needs and returns home to find it." -George Edward Moore The kid made it. That's right, my little brother is here in the United Kingdom with me. He flew into Heathrow on Thursday morning, where I was late meeting him due to tube delays. After some train confusion resulting in having to pay extra for the …

What I thought Edinburgh would have been

A travel blog entry by caelyn

Oh Newcastle... I really wish I could have stayed there more than one night.

It was here that I stayed in my first hostel. I wish I would've stayed in more after that experience. I met super cool people - including a cute boy (practically the first I'd met my entire trip - British boys just don't do it for me!!)! I wasn't even in this …

All in all it has been a quiet few weeks since dad left. However, after two more weeks of hunkering down in the library I am off to Ireland on the 27th. In the meantime, I will be attending a St. Patricks Day formal and party, a Harry Potter themed banquet and much much more. Keep on reading - the adventure is just kicking off.
