Filed under England, Lita's Full Blog

It’s Wednesday, so it’s photo day – though this one won’t be very “Wordless Wednesday”. Today, I’m heading back to the fun we had on our England tour and our stop at Yew Tree Farm. Yew Tree Farm is located in the beautiful Lakes District and was previously owned by Beatrix Potter! In fact, because her […]

Next tour stop – LIVERPOOL! Which basically means The Beatles! At least on our tour it did. We arrived in Liverpool in the late afternoon – just in time for a Beatles tour – and then we promptly left for our next destination in the morning. But being there for just a Beatles tour is […]

Back to sharing memories of our trip to England. Next stop – Chester! We weren’t here long – only a few hours – but I’ve been here before and find this town so very precious with it’s black and white buildings – which it is somewhat known for. Chester is one of the best preserved […]

As we continued our travels northward from Bath, we stopped for a visit in the town Stratford on Avon. Stratford is best known for being the birthplace of William Shakespeare. He spent much of his life here and therefore it is also where you can find his gravesite. It’s a beautiful little town with many […]

England Day 3 – Bath

For me, 2 words came to mind on traveling to Bath – Jane Austen! See, I’m a huge Jane Austen fan. I’ve read all her books – numerous times, I might add. I’ve seen all the movies of her books, and movies about her life and movies about others who also love her and her […]

Day 3 of the tour and we’re off to the English county of Wiltshire to visit Stonehenge! Luckily, we are here a day before the Summer Solstice as the site will be closed to the general public this day when 10-15 thousand people typically arrive to celebrate. We did, in fact, see much more than […]

Day 2 of our trip and the tour begins. Today we traveled around the beautiful city of London getting to see a lot of the major sites. As you can see in the photo above, the city (and we later saw much of England), is still decorated from celebrating the Queen’s Jubilee! What an exciting […]

We’re Home from England – Time to Share

Wow, what an AWESOME trip we just had!! It’s hard to believe we’ve been half way across the globe and now we’re back home again! It’s time to share!! First, I’d like to say the trip was amazing. We booked our tour through Virgin Vacation tours (you can also book through Gate 1  Travel) Let […]

We leave London today to head to Stonehenge and Bath. Here are a couple more photos I’ve had time to play with using Photoshop on my iPad (yes, I’m being a techie geek even on vacay!)   This is the punk Lollita from the Victoria & Albert’s museums British Fashion exhibit…basically I love this! this […]

We made it and we’re having a great time! Testing different ways to post from here now, so sorry if this looks a bit funny at times ;) Happy Monday everyone! (yes, I went meatless today…even with having dinner in a pub!)  

Wordless Wednesday – England/Scotland Memories

Reminiscing over my last trip to England while packing for my upcoming trip. Happy Wednesday!   P.S. if you have a Wordless Wednesday post, please share so I can stop on by to view your photos!

Cannes Photos

I finally got a pretty good group of photos up for all of you who have been waiting. I wasn’t sure what was the best way to display them and of course my mac proved to have the answer for me. Click here to be taken to the main gallery page from which you can […]

Cannes Re-Hash

I actually am not completely recovered yet from the trip and all the days traveling. In case you’ve had trouble finding out how our trip went, here are some links to re-hash what I’ve posted so far. I have many, many more photos to post and tons of stories to share as soon as I […]

Cannes Day 6

We thought yesterday was going to be a “museum” day in Nice as it was raining in the morning. We all headed to the train station, bought our tickets and proceeded to tour a castle and gardens near the station while we waited for our train. The garden was amazing and as we roamed through […]

Cannes Day 5

Yesterday was a more “normal” vacation day – as normal as you can be on the French Riviera. Sam and Nia had midday business in Cannes and then a cocktail party to go to. The rest of us decided we were ready to see more of this beautiful area instead of heading back into Cannes. […]

Cannes – Day 4

Today was our first semi-relaxing day. It was so nice as we’re all pretty exhausted. Sam and Nia had to go In to town this afternoon to do a couple of hours of press. We met them there when they were finished so we could walk around and visit the castle. Unfortunately, the castle and […]

Am I dreaming? If I am, don’t wake me. Yesterday, we headed to the yacht for lunch and a relaxing afternoon. The yacht is owned by the man who financed Sam’s movie, Bill Price. Bill couldn’t be here because his wife is about to have a baby, so he sent his yacht for us to […]

Beloved Free Baba Jimi in Cannes

The last 2 days, I’ve seen opulence I barely knew existed. Each afternoon, as we were picked up by our yacht tender, which takes us out to our yacht worth $7 million with a maintenance budget of $700,000 yearly, I saw much bigger yachts worth a lot more. Some of the owners were paying $50,000 […]

Cannes Day 2 – The Red Carpet

Walking the red carpet at Cannes is ……exactly as you’d expect it to be…..crazy, exhilarating, mind-boggling and awing. There’s so much action going on as you’re “staged” which is fortunate for me because I simply didn’t have the time to get overwhelmed and to tear-up with emotion (which is typical for me). The only nervousness […]

Yahoo!! We made it, we’ve rested, showered, eaten great food, hiked, chatted, dressed and it’s only day one! Tonight is the BIG night! AND we get to walk the red carpet with Sam and Nia at the premier! It’s so exciting! Unfortunately we aren’t allowed cameras, phones, or any other gadgets while walking – so […]

From Beloved free baba jimi in Milano

Approximately 20 years ago Sam and I had traveled to S. Africa on a surfing trip there. S. Africans use a term called a “joll” which is short for a jolly good time. It’s a term they use on road trips to say all the normal rules don’t apply just relax, let it flow and […]

Cannes Film Festival

Um, yep, we’re going – me and Pops…. HOW, you say? Well, let me explain…. See, one of my husband’s absolutely best friends in the whole wide world is Sam George (go ahead Google him, you’ll get lots of info that way) and well, Sam wrote this documentary called “Hollywood Don’t Surf” that just happened […]
