London, England

We have a love/hate relationship with London. (Andrew’s relationship may tend further to the hate side.) There are plenty of things we love about the city: the plethora of museums and theatre options, the shopping (Alison hearts Marks & Sparks), and the amazing international food scene. (The Indian food alone makes it worth the trip for us). But there are things we hate too: the crowds of people – everywhere, the traffic, the pollution, the prices (the exchange rate kills us), and a way of life we fled in North America.

No relationship is perfect and we’re not ready to let the bad outweigh the good (well, at least Alison isn’t) and we’re pretty sure we’ll be back in London again soon enough.

UNESCO-Listed Kew Gardens in London England

Although I’ve made several trips across the channel to London, England, Friday was the first time I visited Kew Gardens. Although I had been looking forward to it, Kew was even better than I expected.

For starters, it’s enormous; 132 hectares to be exact. There was no way I’d be able to see everything in the few hours I had to spend, so I decided to focus on several attractions and take the time to enjoy exploring and photographing them.
