Three Planes and Two Buses Later

Three planes and two buses later - Kristie Jean

Three planes, two buses and (nearly) two weeks later…where did the time go??? Needless to say that I made it home from England. Between the jet lag, being sick, and photos that needed editing this poor space on the internet has been neglected. It is weird coming home from a quick trip half way around the world. There is a part of me that is …

England Day 5 – Brighton

Brighton, England - Kristie Jean

I had the most delicious bowl of porridge and fruit to start the day today. SO GOOD. I stayed at the Motel Schmotel, a little B&B only a couple blocks from the beach. It is not a super fancy place but man do they know how to make breakfast. Plus the name, how you can resist a place with a name like that? I spent …

England Day 4 – Brighton

Brighton, England - Kristie Jean

Today was another travel day but before I headed to the train station I grabbed some photos of where I spent the last two nights. Like I mentioned in the last post I stayed at the Burcombe Manor which is possibly the coolest place I have ever stayed since it looks like a mini castle. If you ever have a reason to be in the …

England Day 3 – Tisbury

Tisbury, England - Kristie Jean

So I was a little tired last night by the time I got back to the B&B and I passed out before I could finish this. I had planned on finishing it while I was on the train earlier but the trains here are just a little crazy so that never happened. I have a whole new appreciation for my car now (also I will …

England Day 2 – London and Tisbury

London Tisbury England - Kristie Jean

Have you ever been near Buckingham Palace during the changing of the guards?? Lets just say it is a little insane. I didn’t know what time the changing of the guards happened when I set out for my walk to Waterloo station and I got caught up in the crazy crowd of people. I managed to shove my way through, and got to Waterloo station …

England Day 1 – London

London England - Kristie Jean

There is only one word to describe London and that is overwhelming. Take the usual hustle and bustle of a city and times it by a thousand, add in people smoking everywhere, an obscene amount of tourists, cars that don’t stop for pedestrians and you’ve got London. I genuinely thought I was going to get hit by a car the first time I stepped out …

Airport Chats

Airport Chats - Kristie Jean

Airports are an interesting place. They are made even more interesting by cancelled flights. You have all the people who have missed their flights through the morning and are just trying to find a seat on another flight. Then you have those who’s flight has just got cancelled and have already gone through security, those are the people who look a little dazed and confused. …

A Weekend Away

A Weekend Away - Kristie Jean

There is something about waking up and not being able to pick up your phone and find out what is happening in the world first thing. There is something about not looking in a mirror for three days. No one cares what you look like, no one is in a hurry to do anything. Wake up, slip in to a swim suit, have breakfast with …

48 Hours in Victoria

48 Hours in Victoria, BC - Kristie Jean

Okay this is going to be a bit of a long one, I took way too many photos and the title of this post is a little bit of a lie, we were on the island for more like 50 hours and only a short time was actually spent in Victoria, the rest of the time we were out in Sooke which is about an …

Wells Gray Provincial Park Adventure

Wells Gray Provincial Park is somewhere I have been a few times, in fact Melody and I went there just last summer. It is in Clearwater BC, just an hour and a half from Kamloops. Most of the time when people think of Wells Gray they think of Helmcken Falls, it is the most well known waterfall in the park though only one of the …
