Good morning, lovely followers!
With the help of all of your feedback (thanks!!), I’ve decided to do a mix of both an update of my travels AND some Delight of the Day posts. I’ll also add some pictures of yours truly once I recover from this awful cold.
I currently look like Rudolph. Super attractive. If at any point I become one of those obnoxious people who never stops rambling about things, please tell me. I hate that!
We (my sister, Melly, and I) left good ole Pennsylvania Monday afternoon and headed toward Chicago for our first layover. I’ve never been before, but it looks super pretty from the plane, so I’d definitely like to visit some time. (Plus one of my BFFs and Chicago Prepster live there!) Anyway, we had a 4-hour layover and decided to make the best of it with our last American meal – a phenomenal cheeseburger.
I’m all about the health.
After Chicago, we headed to London for a 13 freaking hour layover. Because I can’t sit still for longer than two seconds, we decided to venture outside of the airport to Leicester Circle. As you know,
I’m crazy OCD I like to plan things out, so I haven’t been sleeping much. That, paired with this awful sinus business, has me pretty exhausted. So exhausted that ALL I could think about was getting coffee. Leicester Circle, you didn’t disappoint.
There really wasn’t much else there, so we decided to head to Piccadilly Circus since it’s only one Tube stop away. (We’re pros now. Honest!) Of course, it started pouring while we were there, so we basically hid in Starbucks until it was safe to run back to the station.
Overall, nothing super excited has happened yet. But maybe that’s because I’m still riding the high of skydiving for the first time (thanks, honey!!). We should be landing in Athens at 3:00 am this morning, so I’m sure I’ll have better updates the rest of the week!
What are your favorite places in Europe? Or, if you’ve never been, where would you most like to go? (It’s never too late to book an impromptu trip and meet up with us!)
