I'm in England now, helping chaperone a school's language field trip and I thought I'd share a little treasury I created over on Etsy called 'Going to See the Queen'. You can't think of England without thinking of the Union Jack or tea...or Dr. Marten's or Liberty prints! I'm looking forward to riding the London Eye and hearing the fun accent all around me. Since I'll be following the field trip's agenda, there won't really be any time for me to explore on my own (Portobello Road, so close! *sniff*), but I think it will be a nice way to get some touristy activities checked off the list so that next time I can just enjoy the shops the tea culture.

Have you been to England? What were your highlights? Do you have any favorite non-touristy things you like to do in England?

indian food

I loved the Indian food at Brick lane, the pub food (Sunday roast), the crisp with vinegar and yes the fact that they can make a decent cup of tea - you see I used to live in the UK for 6 years!

I love Indian food and I had one of the best trips ever when I was in England.

Hello! It's been a while but I'm back to blogging and (hopefully) commenting more often :)

I love England and the accent. I lived for a year in London, but that was long time ago (ten years already, boy I'm getting old!)
