week-long jaunt to london

August 18th, 2008 · No Comments

So this past week I had the good fortune of being back in London, and I’m currently typing this as I sit on my plane back to the States. (Note: It took me about a week and a half after I got back to actually post this.) While a week is hardly sufficient time to […]

Yesterday was my last Sunday in London. I slept in a bit, took a shower, grabbed my camera and ventured into town. I ended up down near Big Ben and took a nice stroll along the South side of the Thames. I stumbled upon County Hall which was hosting a Star Wars exhibit that I […]

I saw my first ever live NFL game this past weekend. In February, the NFL announced that they would be holding an NFL regular season game in London in late October. The two teams picked to play were the Miami Dolphins and the New York Giants. Given that my team (the Giants, in case you […]

A relatively calm weekend this past weekend. Friday: Went south of Ealing to a town called Richmond, which has a lot of good restaurants and is located right along the Thames, making for a very picturesque scene, but it was night when I went, so I didn’t bring my camera. Saturday: Rugby World Cup Finals. […]

all things sports

October 3rd, 2007 · No Comments

Well, the big updates of things that have happened the past few days have revolved around sports. My flatmate and I found a sports bar in Central London that shows (American) football games. There’s nothing quite like traveling 1/4 of the way around the world only to end up hanging out with a bunch of […]

london day trip extravaganza

September 30th, 2007 · No Comments

Yesterday was a great day. I got to be a tourist and walk around with my flatmate (a fellow new employee and import from the States) and his girlfriend. We live in Ealing, which is about five miles west of London, but we’re right near a Tube station so it was easy to get into […]

Here in the UK, when referring to athletic completion, it’s not “sports”, but “sport”. Therefore, I will now drone on about sport. Mets – Today is judgment day.

hello london

September 23rd, 2007 · No Comments

I’m sitting here in my flat in Ealing, which is a town within London. The flight was long, but good, and I really enjoyed that they had video on demand on a screen in each seat. They even had TV shows, and they had my favorite episode of How I Met Your Mother (“Game Night”). […]

September 22nd, 2007 · No Comments

Welcome to the Blog. I’m going to use this as kind of a general way of keeping in touch with people while I’m over here in London. It’s also my fourth attempt at a blog, so we’ll see how well this actually works. Currently, I’m sitting in Philadelphia International Airport waiting for my flight. Very […]
