England's West Country

One of the many places I’ve dreamed of visiting is Cornwall and this summer my dream became reality. After two days in London we departed for the West Country, the southwestern region of England that includes the counties of Devon, Cornwall, Somerset and Dorset. The first day of our week-long tour took us to the city of Wells and Dartmoor National Park.

Cruising the Thames to Greenwich

London is no longer a major port city but the River Thames still bustles with barges, yachts and sightseeing cruises. So it seemed only fitting that we take to the water for our journey to the World Heritage Site of Maritime Greenwich

Bridget Jones's London

Are you a fan of the Bridget Jones novels by Helen Fielding or the movies starring RenĂ©e Zellweger? If so, you’re probably looking forward to the latest film in the franchise, Bridget Jones’s Baby, which opens in North American theatres on Friday. I’m taking a slight detour from my planned posts to share some photos of London filming locations from the first two movies, Bridget Jones’s Diary (2001) and Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason (2004).

Day One in London

I’m back from England and what an amazing trip. We spent a week touring the charming villages and beautiful scenery of the West Country, plus another twelve days exploring the many sights in and near London. I took 4,000 pictures and there’s a lot to tell you so let's start from the beginning, in London.
