A few weeks ago we decided to squeeze in a quick day trip. Rye, East Sussex, is about 2 hours driving from London (with traffic) and is one of the most beautiful little medieval villages. It is the perfect spot for lunch, a stroll, and grabbing ice cream. Rye is also home to The Mermaid […]

Warwick Castle is located in the county of Warwickshire, England. I originally booked us for a Santa Sleepover here in December but thanks to Covid and government regulations we had to reschedule. I was lucky to be able to use our voucher for a trip to Knight’s Village and Warwick Castle during the girls’ most […]

For our latest photo walk we decided to explore close to home. Right over the Thames is beautiful Fulham. It is full of historic parks, quaint boutiques and cheerful people. We met a few very friendly shop owners and I loved spending time in Tacco, a shop specializing in Apulian imported foods and wine. Puglia […]

It was a gloomy spring day but I wanted to get out to do something and it looked like we’d have a window of a few hours without rain. We hopped on the bus for the 45 minute ride to Richmond Park when it started to down pour. Ugh! I grumbled, but we continued to […]

We’ve found it really easy to get around England via train so far (we’ll see if that opinion holds up after our next trip to Warwickshire) so for our trip to Surrey we hopped on a train from London Waterloo and rode down to Gomshall. From there, it was a quick 15-20 minute walk to […]

I’ve always enjoyed documenting our family adventures and travels, but recently I’ve been able to go out and explore without my children. It’s been a bit of a transition for me to shift the focus from clients and family to capturing my surroundings and the strangers that make up this diverse and incredible city. Street […]

After 8 months in England we were finally able to get out of London for a day trip. Whoohoo! Although I absolutely love London, it was so nice to get a change of scenery and explore a little more of this incredible country. Since we are still under restrictions and hotels and indoor dining/attractions are […]

I feel like it’s been forever since I’ve posted in here… or anywhere to be honest. The past year has been challenging professionally thanks to the “C” word and yet another military move. I found myself hesitant to pull out my camera…feeling stuck and lacking inspiration in the confinement of lockdown. Now that things are […]

My oldest and I snuck away for a quick weekend trip to beautiful Calabria. Seeing the Aeolian islands and Tropea were on my bucket list so when a friend invited us to tag along on her trip we jumped at the chance. Tropea is about 5 hours by train (with one connection) from Naples. We […]

Puglia is a region of Italy across from Campania that encompasses the heel of the boot. For our Easter weekend break, we decided to take the quick drive over and explore the northern portion including Ostuni, Alberobello, and Polignano a Mare. Puglia has certainly become my favorite region in Southern Italy. It is dotted with […]
