Highlights of East and North Yorkshire, Part 1

Standard

Here are a few highlights of our trip to England. Beverley Minster, feeding ducks and swans in Walkington, eating dinner at The Star in Sancton, fish and chips in Wetwang, and our old house in Market Weighton we rented from 2005-2010.

Grand Palace, Bangkok

Standard

Selection of photos from the Grand Palace in Bangkok. Alex and Sofia seemed to be part of the attractions at the Grand Palace. Two little blond, white children… They were repeatedly accosted for photos, tapped on the head, tickled under the chin, smiled at and people stopped to stare at them. Sofia was loving it but Alex, my shy boy, had enough and started hiding from people.

Round the World Update

Standard

So far, so good. A few minor mishaps here and there but
nothing that can’t be worked out. Alex and Sofia have proved to be
good little travelers thus far in the car, on the plane and by
foot. I have to say that jet lag wasn’t as bad as I thought it
would be with two kids. Today is sadly our last day in Europe.

Tomorrow morning at 7am we depart Barcelona for Münich and then
Charlotte, NC, for the USA portion of our trip. I will follow up
this post with a few more that have photos. Sadly, my camera is not
repaired and with the dollar in such a sad state, Europe is not the
place to buy a replacement. Tom has taken photos the past couple of
days with his Blackberry so i will have to have him either post
photos from there or figure out how to get them off of
there.
