I remember my first Thanksgiving in London. My husband (then fiancé) was living here and I had just been placed on a furlough scheme from the airline where I was a flight attendant. I had earned a promotion in January of 2001, but due to the 9/11 attacks, Continental Airlines (like others) had to place a large number of staff on indefinite leave. I had taken the opportunity to join an MBA p...

Having thoroughly enjoyed my day out at Windsor Castle, I decided that I would venture out again the following week. Little did I know that it would be the last time I could do this before London entered Lockdown 2.0. So in writing this blog post, I am so happy that I did it because I am not sure when my next outing can occur. I still have not decided to take the tube, so once again it was t...

With the pandemic swinging around like a pendulum on a clock, I have been going through waves of emotion. From worry and fear, to frustration and fed-up-ness, I hover between the idea of staying home to stay safe and going out to just live my life. When Windsor Castle announced they would have Princess Beatrice’s wedding dress on display, I felt like this was a calling for me to venture out ...

  Greetings from Switzerland! I write this while looking outside a window at a mountain in the Swiss Alps. It is an incredible winter wonderland, and makes me want to sing, “It’s a marshmallow world in the winter!” My husband, baby cousin and her husband are somewhere on the mountain, enjoying beautiful powdery snow and getting in some ski runs. Meanwhile, I am sat in a res...

  On the eve of the premiere of the new film Mary Poppins Returns, I got a phone call from a local news reporter. It was 3:40pm. I was preparing to tour at Down Street Underground Station, part of the Hidden London programme with the London Transport Museum. The reporter was quick-spoken with a voice that combined chaos and urgency into one. “Tonight is the premier of the new Mary Popp...

This year, we decided to try Hamburg for the Christmas Markets. Two years ago we did Nuremburg, and last year we were in Basil, Switzerland. All year, I have been probing my German clients for suggestions, and Hamburg had many good recommendations. It was about 2 weeks before Thanksgiving when I finally sat down and made plans. So, an Easyjet and AirBNB later, we were settled.  German Christ...

This year, I am lucky to be celebrating Thanksgiving in a new home. It's extra special because now I own it. All of the things I have bought over the years that I have stored away "until we buy a house" have come out and are in full use. It has been a dream come true, and I think this was the best Thanksgiving meal I've ever made! I have lived in London for 18 years. We have spent about 12 of the...
