The most annoying sounds in the world... - January 19, 2011

Although, I have to agree that the usual suspects do indeed fit the bill when it comes to annoying noises—things such as nails on a chalkboard, dripping water, woodpeckers—I would like to put forth a few less commonly touted audial disturbances. For instance, irritating cell phone rings and text message alerts, especially in the hands of a teenager who receives the posts at a rate of once every 60 seconds while at the dinner table. Or the din of the fan on a desktop hard dr...

Historical Wife Swap - January 17, 2011

Growing up, I attended a Lutheran Church, and as a child, for the longest time I thought the father of the Protestant Reformation, Martin Luther, was also the father of Martin Luther King, Jr.  This made for some very confusing Sunday School lessons and a curiousity as to how Martin Luther's son someone also became a king.  And in my typical stubborn, independent way, I refused to ask the necessary questions to straighten out this conundrum, lest I look stupid or ignorant.&nb...

It's all Greek to me... - January 14, 2011

You asked: Which UK location had the funniest accent? I have a particular affinity for the UK and their accents, so I don’t know that any of them struck me as particularly funny, but there were a few that stuck out significantly in one way or another.  The employees at our hotel and the restaurant we ate at in Glasgow win the prize for the most difficult to understand. I pride myself on my ability to comprehend most UK accents, courtesy of numerous viewings of British films and...

The path less traveled... - January 12, 2011

You asked: I know you went to some really famous landmarks and other "not so touristy" places. Were the tourist locales simply one-in-a-million or do you think more travelers should check out the places less-traveled? First off, I should say that many of the touristy places are so well visited for a reason. Many of these hot spots are interesting landmarks that every traveler to the UK should check out, either for their beauty, their cultural or historical significance, or simply...

A Good, Driving Beat... - January 8, 2011

Maybe it’s my effervescent soul bubbling over, my overactive auditory nerves, or my cheerleading roots showing themselves. Maybe it’s all of those things combined, or none of them at all. The only thing I know is that I have a love obsession with dance and techno music, anything with a beat fast enough, bouncy enough, driving enough to get my heart racing and my feet jumping. It makes me smile. It makes me motivated. And, oh so obviously, it makes me want to ...

The Worth of Christmas - December 21, 2010

About this time every year I find myself scrambling for an emotional connection, a proper appreciation for what is about to happen on the holiest night of the year. It’s not a matter of unbelief, or skepticism for the holiday. I have as much faith and holiday spirit as most, if not more. But somehow amidst all the decorating and baking and wrapping and caroling, inside I fall flat. Outwardly I smile and celebrate, but inwardly I’m trying to understand my inability...

York - December 19, 2010

England’s second city between 1100 and 1500, York, has a colorful and rich history, which is utilized to its fullest in the city’s numerous and diverse tourist destinations. “A medieval city constructed on top of a Roman one, it was first built in AD 71, when it became capital of the northern province and was known as Eboracum. It was here that Constantine the Great was made emperor in 306, and reorganized Britain into four provinces. A hundred years later, the R...

The Peak District - December 19, 2010

Our day in the Peak District was pretty much a wash out because of the gloomy weather. We left York late and had difficulty with the GPS, but we eventually found our way to Castleton. Lovely Castleton lies in Winnats Pass, a spectacular gash in the landscape, below the romantic ruins of 11th century Peveril Castle, which gave Castleton its name. The old stone village is close to dramatic caves from which minerals such as Blue John, a unique local purple fluorspar, has been mined f...

Stratford-upon-Avon - December 19, 2010

The village of Stratford-upon-Avon is, of course, best known as the birthplace of William Shakespeare, and most of its tourist attractions are geared around the life of the bard. A tour of selected locations can take you through his life, starting with his birthplace on Henley Street, then on to the 15th century half-timbered Grammar School in Church Street, which he attended. Most famous of all is Anne Hathaway’s cottage, home of the woman he was to marry. New Place, on Cha...

London - December 19, 2010

I was so excited to step off the train at Paddington Station and arrive in London. Our taxi driver was talkative and friendly, pointing out the sights we drove past on the way to our excellent hotel location directly across Westminster Bridge from Big Ben. After checking in, we set off across Westminster Bridge, snapping pictures of Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament, the Statue of Boudicca, and the London Eye as we walked. Strolling past the government buildings lining Whitehall, ...
