Finally Home

Its almost been a couple weeks since I arrived back home and I’m glad to be back.  Don’t get me wrong I had a wonderful, beyond amazing time in London and will go back in a heart beat, but there is nothing quite like home and the holidays.  London is an amazing city with a…

I’m Ready to Leave

I have less then a week left in this country and I can’t wait to go home.  Don’t get me wrong, I more than enjoyed my time here in the United Kingdom, but I miss the United States, with the exception of the politics.  I miss my pets, my family, my friends, Rollins, my job…

Scotland!

When can I move to Edinburgh?  It is absolutely stunning!  There is so much history in the air you are swimming through it.  The buildings are all the same type, made from this light brownish stone color making the city look so beautiful and put together.  Despite the fact that the weather the days I was…

Words

Das Drücken: Push I first encountered this word on a door in the hotel.  It was either push and pull and knowing which one is which will save time. Die Kirche: Church Das Rauchen: Smoking Der Regen: Rain The reason I have decided to remember the word for rain is because it rains often here. …

Munster

Something interesting I found while in Munster was how the town decided to memorialize the victims of the Holocaust.  Usually when you think of memorials dedicated to the Holocaust you think about a giant tribute to all of the people who lost their lives during this time.  For example, the ones in Washington D.C., New…
