So. Much. Joy.

So. Much. Joy.

I cannot tell y’all how much I am loving this trip right now. It’s true that sibling disharmony is not improved by being stuck in a car for 6 hours at a time, but if they’re going to be fighting anyway, they may as well being doing it half way around the world while...

Jabaritos near Chicago’s Humboldt Park

Jabaritos near Chicago’s Humboldt Park

We had lunch at this little Puerto Rican restaurant in Chicago’s Humboldt neighbourhood yesterday. We discovered it on Yelp. It’s the sort of place you would never have discovered before the internet, unless you lived locally, and it was excellent. The server didn’t speak much English, and my Spanish is limited to “Gracias”, but...

The Mountain Lion

When we were camping in Joseph D. Grant Santa Clara County Park the camp host told us that we were in mountain lion country. The mountain lion is a solitary creature and travels in ones or twos. When on all four legs at its highest point it is just above the knee of a...

Camping with Kids, Day 9: Stanislaus National Forest – Lost Claim Campground This is more my memory of camping in America, even though I only came up this way once. Then again, I may have camped in this very campground. I certainly spent a couple of nights up here at a very similar one. Tall,...

Torn between sitting & writing, taking a wander around the campground to enjoy the early morning light, or getting started on coffee & pancakes. Just really enjoying the quiet, though I think I hear movement from kids in the...

Is This Trip Jinxed or Something?

Is This Trip Jinxed or Something?

Camping Day 7. Third campground, Lake McSwain, California. Got out the stove to cook dinner after setting up camp. We borrowed this stove from some friends I used to go camping with back when I lived in the States, 20 years ago. We used this exact same stove back then, and it’s still going...

New York City Adventures: Central Park, Morningside Park, and Ice Cream!

looking down at central park through the window of an apartment across the road

New York was awesome, though very short. Central Park would take days and days to explore properly and we only had one. We were incredibly lucky to stay with a friend of a friend on the Upper West Side, right across the road from Central Park.
