All Hail the Queen

in All Posts

It’s official!  We’ll be spending our first wedding anniversary in England!

We’re flying to London on Christmas Eve and spending 10 days in the Husband’s homeland.  We last went to England in 2006 for our college graduations.  I was looking through our old photographs and I couldn’t help but say, “Dang! I wish I had been a blogger in 2006.”  I only took 200 photographs of a two-week trip to England, Spain, and Rome! This time, I bet I take 1,000.


My mom flew over for a few days, and she and I went to Rome.  It was awesome to share that experience with my mom.


Then, the Husband, my sister-in-law, and I went to Spain.  I’ve been to Spain twice and I’m not really a fan.  But the beaches were LOVELY!


The entire trip, I only took 2 food photographs.  After a wild night at the clubs, we went to a 24-hour curry joint and got a massive amount of Indian food! 🙂


The second food photograph was of the most expensive drink I’ve ever bought.  This gin and tonic cost me 15 Euros (around $20 at the time), and I guess I believed it to be worthy of a photograph at the time!  🙂


Good times!  🙂


And back to reality….


I decided not to run tonight.  We got caught up in booking the plane tickets, and I just never got around to it.  I think I’ll make it up in the morning.


I had a bowl of granola and Greek yogurt around 5 PM, which was yummy but totally ruined my appetite.


Dinner was just soup, crackers, and pickles.  :) 


Have you been to a foreign country?  I’ve asked this before, but its so fun to read about everyone’s travels.  I’ve been to Canada, Mexico, Guatemala, England, France, Spain, Austria, Italy, the Czech Republic, Hungary, and Germany.   My favorite place was England by miles, but France runs a close second.

    You guys are going to have an absolute blast! What a great way to spend an anniversary! I have been to Mexico, Dom Republic, Bahamas, Aruba, Costa Rica, and England

  • Jessica October 12, 2009, 9:19 pm

    That will be such a fun trip and a great way to spend your anniversary!! I’ve been to Germany, England, and Ireland. Ireland was my favorite and i’m going back this coming summer, i’m so excited!! I’d love to live in London or anywhere in Ireland but I really loved Dublin.

  • Adriane October 12, 2009, 9:21 pm

    I was lucky enough to study abroad for a semester during my junior year. I was based in the Netherlands and traveled to Germany, France, Belgium, Italy, Switzerland, Czech Republic, Spain, and England. I have also been to the Bahamas. Can’t wait to go more places!

  • Mary @ Fit this girl October 12, 2009, 9:21 pm

    I have been to England, Scottland and Puerto Rico, but am going to Germany in November!! I am excited but nervous too, I am hoping that I know what to bring and pack. My brother lives there so I know this will be one of my best trips ever–he’s awesome. It is SO romantic that you are doing this for your anniversary!! I can’t wait to see all the pictures!

  • Sara October 12, 2009, 9:21 pm

    That Indian food spread looks to die for! Indian cuisine is my favorite gluttonous splurge!
    I’ve been to Canada, Israel, Egypt, and Jordan, but I can’t wait to see Europe someday.

  • Julie October 12, 2009, 9:22 pm

    Thats so fun!! You guys will have a blast! I’m very jealous.

    I’ve been to England and France and I’m majorly, totally, butt crazy in love with England. London was so amazing, I really hope I get to go back one of these days.

    haha I took a picture of a drink I had in London too…Bulmers cider. It was so freaking good.

  • Priyanka October 12, 2009, 9:27 pm

    I am definitely going to Germany this December, a second European country…we are thinking about it!! After that I am going to India.

    Hope you have a good time!!

  • Tracey@tropicalhappiness October 12, 2009, 9:35 pm

    I’ve been to many countries… I’m not sure I could list them all. I actually lived in South America (2 countries) and Australia, in addition to the States. I just went to Paris and Italy for my honeymoon in May… loved it! My husband & I both love photos, so we took over 3000! NO JOKE!

  • Michelle October 12, 2009, 9:36 pm

    You’ll have SO much fun. I have been to: Australia (ok I live here), Singapore, Japan, Canada, East Timor, India…I will get to Africa before I die.

    Good on your for taking a break.

  • Island Girl Eats October 12, 2009, 9:41 pm

    That is so exciting. I can not wait to see the pictures from your trip. I have been to: Canada (my home land!), US, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Bahamas, England, Scotland, France, Guernsey, Jersey, Amsterdam, and the Canary Islands.
    I would love to go to Italy – maybe one day.

  • Teacherwoman October 12, 2009, 9:47 pm

    How fun to be able to spend your first anniversary in England! I can’t believe that is coming up in the near future! WOW!

    The only foreign country I have been to is Canada… lol. I so want to tour Europe, maybe doing a Contiki tour some where down the road. 🙂

  • Erin October 12, 2009, 9:47 pm

    England at Christmastime is the best — you should definitely try to see a panto if you’ve never seen one — very unique to England.

    I’ve lived in England and South Korea (and the US haha) and traveled to Canada, Mexico, Jamaica, Belize, Guatemala, Australia, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, France, Germany, Switzerland, Spain, Austria, Italy, Czech Republic, Thailand and the Philippines.

    I *think* that’s it! Whew!

  • Mellissa October 12, 2009, 9:48 pm

    I love spending holidays internationally! We always go somewhere over thanksgiving and love it. I am at almost 20 countries and my hubby is at about 80, he is on a quest to get to 100 so we keep going to farther and more exotic places. Brazil is our Thanksgiving plan this year and potentially India in the Spring.

  • Evan Thomas October 12, 2009, 9:48 pm

    I’ve been to Greece, italy, Spain, France, and Costa Rica. I loved Greece and Italy and would want to study abroad ther some day

  • Lee October 12, 2009, 9:52 pm

    I did one semester my junior year in London and LOVED it. Other than that, I’ve been to France, Spain, Italy, Canada and Mexico.

  • Kristin October 12, 2009, 9:54 pm

    I’ve been to England, Kenya, Mexico, Italy, Panama, Costa Rica, Argentina and Ecuador. My favorite place was Kenya and unfortunately my least favorite place was Italy 🙁 But I am not much into cities. I like the wild and animals and hardly spoken languages!

  • Amanda October 12, 2009, 9:57 pm

    How fun! I’ve always wanted to go to England but haven’t been yet! So far I’ve been to France, Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Austria, Italy, South Africa, and Mexico. Hope to add some more to the list next year!

  • Lizzy October 12, 2009, 10:00 pm

    How amazing! 🙂 This will be the best trip yet i’m sure! All the photos your going to take are going to be exquisite now with all your skills with being a blogger! 🙂 so happy for you and the hubby!

  • Susan October 12, 2009, 10:00 pm

    Yay! That sounds like such a great way to spend the holidays! My sister has lived in both Germany and Mexico, so I’ve visited her there. As well as Holland, Belgium, Luxembourg, France, Cuba and Jamaica. My favourite trip was probably Mexico. We were away from the beaches in a small town. We stayed with a local family who owned a smoothie bar. And my god, the food was GOOD! 😛

  • Kath October 12, 2009, 10:00 pm

    Just caught up on HTP! SOOO jealous of the London trip!

  • Kristina October 12, 2009, 10:04 pm

    How exciting! The last time I went to England was in 2006, too. Three weeks over Christmas, also spent four days in Edinburgh. LOVED Edinburgh, and can’t wait to see more of Scotland one of these days. My boyfriend has family in Manchester, so that’s definitely a perk (especially since I’m a total anglophile). I was first in England in 2002…got to spend a week and a half in London.

  • Kristina October 12, 2009, 10:06 pm

    Oh…and I took around 1300 photos on my last three week trip to the UK 😉

  • jen trinque October 12, 2009, 10:08 pm

    I’ve been to Canada a couple of times and also New Zealand, which was gorgeous! I have SOOOO many more places I want to go…someday!

  • Laura@FindingAHealthyBalance October 12, 2009, 10:10 pm

    My step-dad was in the military so we moved every 2-3 years and during my late childhood years and early teens we lived overseas in England (which I loved and miss a lot), and while living there we visited places all over Europe (France, Germany, Spain, Belgium & Scottland). I agree with you on Spain, it was not quite what I was expecting, but the beaches were beautiful.

  • Freckles October 12, 2009, 10:15 pm

    Happy anniversary! I am looking forward to see your trip report w/ tons of pictures 🙂
    Well, your today’s question is kinda odd one for me… I am a Japanese and born and grew up in Japan until 15yrs old. I have been living in the US since then (for about 12 years now). So if you ask me if I have been to a foreign country, I would say…. YES! To the United States 😛 😛 Does it count?! I have also been to Canada, but it was only for a couple hours, so I don’t want to count 😉

  • Jessica @ How Sweet It Is October 12, 2009, 10:16 pm

    OMG that wlll be such a blast! I’ve never been out of the country!

  • Jenna October 12, 2009, 10:21 pm

    glad you booked the trip to england!
    i can’t wait to hear all about it now that you have a blog this time around going to england!!

  • Jolene ( October 12, 2009, 10:30 pm

    I have been to the US, Mexico, Cuba, and I will be going to Dominican Republic this new years.

    I look forward to seeing your pics from England this year – now that you are a food blogger!

  • Amber from GIrl with the Red Hair October 12, 2009, 10:35 pm

    Wow, you’ve done A LOT of travelling. So far I’ve only been to Germany and Disneyland for international travelling, but I’m hoping to do WAY more travelling when I finish university next spring. Starting with a few weeks in Europe!

  • Katie - Life Discombobulated October 12, 2009, 10:40 pm

    It’s so great to have an awesome vacation to look forward to, isn’t it??? I’ve been to England, too, and LOVED it! I’ve also been to Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Bali (Indonesia), and lived in Taiwan for a year. I’d have to say that New Zealand and Bali were my favorites, along with a few places here in the good old US of A! : )

  • Melissa S. October 12, 2009, 10:46 pm

    I’ve been to England, Ireland, Wales, Australia and New Zealand. Australia is my number one, followed closely by NZ. Awesome Awesome places!

  • Morgan October 12, 2009, 10:47 pm

    So fun! I’ve never been to Enlgand, and would love to go. I’ve been to Spain, Australia, Mexico and Israel and a handful of islands. I spent a semester in Australia which was amazing, and I just love Israel, I felt really connected to it!

  • Sara October 12, 2009, 10:48 pm

    I have never been to another country 🙁 I really really hope to one day though! The furthest I have been is to Hawaii!

  • claire October 12, 2009, 10:51 pm

    Let’s see…I lived in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan for a year (in fifth grade) and I’ve been to Moscow, St. Petersburg, Paris, Romania, Hungary, Kazakhstan, and somewhere else (just flew in and out so nothing exciting). 🙂 I WANT to go to England and Greece…though Australia would be fun, too!

  • Amanda (Two Boos Who Eat) October 12, 2009, 10:56 pm

    I’ve been to Italy and England. I cannot wait to visit more places!!

  • L October 12, 2009, 11:09 pm

    I’ve been to Mexico, all over China (including Hong Kong and Macau), Australia (lived there for a few years), Bali, Indonesia and Fiji. I have a ‘dream list’ that includes most of Europe, central America, India..If i could travel for a living I would.

  • Madeline @ GreensAndJeans October 12, 2009, 11:10 pm

    I’ve lived in New Zealand, Sweden, and England, and was lucky enough to get to travel all over Europe! Getting to LIVE in these places instead of just pass through was a great way to grow up!

  • Emily (Emily Eats and Exercises) October 12, 2009, 11:12 pm

    Sounds like great anniversary plans!
    Growing up I was part of an orchestra that got to go on amazing tours. I’ve been to: England, Wales, Switzerland, Chile, Argentina, and Brazil. Those were some great trips, I’d love to do some more travelling.

  • Cynthia (It All Changes) October 12, 2009, 11:16 pm

    I was born and spend a good portion of my childhood in Germany as a military child. I loved living through history. I even have a piece of the Berlin wall from when it fell.

    I’ve been to many other places including Spain. It breaks my heart that you aren’t a fan. I studied there for 4 months and it is like my second home. I wish I could show you the wonders and beauty I see “en mi pais”.

    • caitlin October 13, 2009, 7:56 am

      im only not a fan of spain because the first time i went, i ended up up breaking with my boyfriend while there and then we had to spend a week together, and the second time the husband and i went, we had some major family problems (not between us). lol so maybe i like the country, i just associate it with bad things.

  • Jacqueline October 12, 2009, 11:18 pm

    Can’t wait to see your pictures.
    Hope the Husband is on the mend.

  • Felicia October 12, 2009, 11:28 pm

    Most of my foreign travel has been in the Caribbean – definitely no complaints there. 🙂

    But one of my favorite trips out of the country was a 3 week vacation that I took in Italy the summer after my sophomore year with about 7 of my friends from college. One of our friend’s family is from there and he has dual citizenship here in the U.S. and Italy.

    It is such a beautiful country and was amazing to travel with someone who knew it so well and spoke the language. I can’t wait to go back!

  • Anna October 12, 2009, 11:50 pm

    Awesome! You guys are going to have SO much fun. Can’t wait to see the pics and read the recaps.

    I love traveling too- I’ve been to England, Greece, Canada, Italy, France, New Zealand, the Dominican Republic, and Kenya! Hopefully over Thanksgiving break, I’ll be adding Uganda to that list.

  • meagan October 12, 2009, 11:54 pm

    i’ve been to egypt and turkey…and we’re going to england in the spring time to see my husband’s sister in london. then we’re going to ireland in the summer with my parents. i can’t wait!

  • Kate October 13, 2009, 12:03 am

    I’m jealous of your trip. I’ve been to Mexico, Canada, England, France, Germany, the Czech Republic, Austria, Italy, Spain, Portugal, India, New Zealand, Fiji, and have a trip planned to Greece next year. And a (honeymoon) trip to either Vietnam and Thailand or Chile and Argentina planned for 2011.

  • megan October 13, 2009, 12:29 am

    Yup. I lived in Englad for 15 months when I was iin kindergarten. My dad was in the Air Force. We did a lot of traveling while we were in Europe, I remember so much but kind of wish I’d been a little older! I had such an accent- my teacher’s didn’t know I was American until my mom kept us home on Thanksgiving. 🙂

  • megan October 13, 2009, 12:30 am

    Oh, and Canada (just Niagra Falls for the day) and a day spent in a little Mexican bordetown, that was FUN!

  • Whole Body Love October 13, 2009, 1:05 am

    The only foreign country I have been to is Mexico. But, I would hardly call Cancun foreign since it’s so tourist-y. I would love to go to England or France.

  • Lucy October 13, 2009, 1:14 am

    I live in England! I have been to Germany, Spain, Italy, Belgium, France and America 7 or 8 times- it seems weird that you are excited about coming on holiday here when we get so excited about going over to America! I hope that you will enjoy it! Will you be spending the whole time in London? What are your plans? You’re making me feel very excited for Christmas! I think its going to be cold by the way, because its pretty cold already!

    • caitlin October 13, 2009, 7:57 am

      im not sure what our plans are yet – we have family there in the country so we’re going to travel around a lot. but id like to spend new years in london, of course!!

  • Kristine October 13, 2009, 2:24 am

    how exciting your going to england! i hope to go one day soon. for the foreign countries ive been too.. ive been to canada, mexico, jamaica, hong kong, taiwan, philippines, and malaysia. i hope to travel more later in life. i really want to visit new zealand!

  • Lara (Thinspired) October 13, 2009, 2:54 am

    Yay! How fun for you 🙂 Do you recommend Rome? I’ve been to other parts of Italy but have not made it to Rome yet. France is by far my favorite so far. Haven’t been to Spain yet, though.
    The picture in the phonebook is so cute of you 🙂 Classic.

    • caitlin October 13, 2009, 7:58 am

      i liked rome, but i would not go again during peak season (summertime). also, i think its a city you only need to visit as a tourist once.

  • Ellen October 13, 2009, 3:36 am

    yeah! i’m excited to read about your trip. it sounds wonderful. i’m currently living in Rome and i have fallen in love with Italy. it IS amazing how expensive things are here though (and it’s only gotten worse since you’ve been, i imagine.) i hope that drink was good 🙂

  • Ednabucket October 13, 2009, 3:40 am

    London at Christmas is so lovely, its probably one of the only times I like it – but as its only up the road I guess I take it for granted! Make sure you visit Harrods! I honeymooned in the states this year and loved it! I also loved Cuba. Italy and the states are my faves – not sure if I can pick one favourite!

  • Diana October 13, 2009, 4:05 am

    You should come to Portugal. 😉
    I’ve been to England and Spain. I really do wish I could travel more!

  • peony October 13, 2009, 4:14 am

    i live about an hour from london 🙂
    umm ireland, czech republic, spain, italy, austria, new zealand, poland, germany and kenya

  • Lola October 13, 2009, 4:50 am

    Can’t believe you didn’t like Spain! I suppose it depends on where you went? I’m living in Madrid for a year or so, but I wouldn’t be surprised if I end up staying longer or moving back some time.

    Though, I must say of the other countries I’ve visited, Ireland holds a special place in my heart. Could never live there, though, because I NEED lots of sunshine!

    • caitlin October 13, 2009, 7:58 am

      see answer to #39 🙂

  • VeggieGirl October 13, 2009, 5:21 am


  • Stacey October 13, 2009, 5:56 am

    I have never been out of the country (frowns) Haha jk. The boyfriend and I are saving up for a huge France trip sometime in the near future, France being my first pick of places I want to go 🙂 You are going to have so much fun!

  • Katie (Runs for Fun) October 13, 2009, 6:19 am

    Fun question! I’ve been to France, Switzerland, Austria, Germany, Liechtenstein, and traveled all over Italy. I’ve also been to Canada numerous times, but seeing how I went to college 10 miles away from the border, I don’t really count that. 😛

  • Kirsten October 13, 2009, 6:35 am

    I love England!! So exciting! I lived in Ireland for 3 years and I’ve been to 20 countries and four continents! My favorites were Argentina and Chile, Prague in the Czech Republic and Portugal. London has always been one of my favorites as well 🙂

  • Amy October 13, 2009, 6:42 am

    It’s funny – I lived in the same bedroom for the first 19 years of my life. Then I decided I wanted to travel. I’ve been to Mexico, Canada, Bahamas, Ecuador (honeymoon), Brazil, Philippines (with the Peace Corps), and then we got stationed in England where we lived for 3 years. While there we traveled to Scotland, Wales, France, Belgium, Spain, Italy, Germany, Luxemburg, Netherlands, Austria, Prague, Poland, Croatia, and South Africa. I feel like I’m forgetting somewhere, but I don’t know. We loved Croatia and Italy, but South Africa might have been our favorite. We now live in Okinawa (a tropical island on the southern end of Japan’s chain of islands). We’re going to Singapore, Phuket, and Malaysia on a cruise for Thanksgiving. Woohoo!

  • Kelly October 13, 2009, 7:01 am

    I LOVE traveling so much- living near my family but then traveling 🙂 I’ve been to Greece, Italy, Spain, France, England, Scotland, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand 🙂 I really need to go more places in the US though.

  • Jennie {in Wonderland} October 13, 2009, 7:29 am

    Hi Caitlin!! You’re going to have so much fun in the UK over Christmas!! 🙂

    I’m from Canada, and have lived in 3 Canadian provinces and only visited 5 or so. I’ve also lived in the US {Florida}, Germany, Wales and England. I’ve been to Scotland, Italy, Bermuda, Cuba, the Bahamas, Spain, Austria, France, Holland, Denmark, Sweden, Switzerland and to be honest, a few other places that I can’t remember. I’m a military brat, through and through! 😉

  • Paige October 13, 2009, 7:57 am

    You’ve traveled a lot! Lucky! I’ve been to Dominican Republic – that’s it as far as out of the country. That’s so exciting you’ll get to spend your first anniversary in England 🙂 So exciting!

  • christie @ honoring health October 13, 2009, 8:50 am

    Wow, you have done so much traveling!

    The only foreign country I have been to was Fanning Island which is a third world country on a beautiful island in the pacific ocean. I went there are part of my honeymoon cruise to Hawaii. It was pretty awesome.

  • Julie October 13, 2009, 8:55 am

    I have been to France, Hungary, Vienna, England (times 2), South Africa, Mexico, various Carribean islands, including Turks and Caicos (my fav), and Italy.

    Please check out my post (I have linked my name) of my most recent trip to England (late August) – we rented a car and drove into the country and we survived – the BF did all the driving but I was navigating and making sure he did not hit too many curbs or any other cars or people. Ha!

  • Bridget October 13, 2009, 9:02 am

    Have fun planning your trip!

    I loved England, too! Most of my time was in or near London, but I definitely made myself at home for those two weeks and was sad to leave!

    I’ve been to: Canada, Mexico, Jamaica, Guatemala, Japan (my home for at least a couple more years!), Thailand, Hong Kong, England, Scotland, and India. The most pressing places that I want to visit are Greece, Russia, Vietnam and Kenya.

  • Sarah @ See Sarah Eat October 13, 2009, 9:11 am

    I have only been to one…Nicaragua, on a mission trip. It is a beautiful country to behold but also sad because it is among the poorest in the Western Hemisphere.

    I’d love to visit Europe someday, especially France!

  • Juli October 13, 2009, 9:12 am

    Have fun! I have been to England, Scotland, Ireland, Amsterdam, France, Spain, Canada, Mexico, and St. Lucia. I think Ireland was my favorite, but St. Lucia was amazing too.

  • Tina October 13, 2009, 9:15 am

    Ahhh, I went to London last year and totally fell in love. Everything about it was wonderful. I cannot wait to go back.

    Why didn’t you like Spain though!? I’m thinking of studying abroad there.

    The places that I’ve been to abroad are Peru and England. I have soo many plans to go to other places though 😀

    Sorry if this has been asked already…Do you find it difficult to maintain a vegetarian diet abroad?

    • caitlin October 13, 2009, 9:34 am

      i havent been abroad yet as a veggie but im guessing the answer will be yes. 🙁 i mean, ill maintain it but it will be hard.

  • Kate October 13, 2009, 9:27 am

    That is going to be such a fun trip, i’m excited to see all of your pictures. I have been to Mexico and thats it. Hopefully more in the future.

  • Jo October 13, 2009, 9:44 am

    YAY – you’re coming to the UK!!! I’m originally from Edinburgh, used to live in London (until recently and I still visit often and I own a flat there) but now live in the Channel Islands…. If you want tips/restaurants/recommendations let me know as I would love to help you. You should go to scotland though! Ha ha I’m biased! You’ll have a great time. I adore travelling – I went to New york for the first time this year and adored it, wish I could live there.

    re veggie diet – if you are in the UK its easy peasy to maintain a veggie diet – especially London

  • Melissa October 13, 2009, 10:07 am

    What an exciting vacation! 🙂 That will be a great way to celebrate your 1st anniversary!

    I spent a month in Chile when I was in 10th grade. I celebrated my 15th birthday there, and fell in love with my Dulce de Leche cake.

    I’ve also been to Trinidad, Toronto, Barcelona and London. Plus, over the summer, I spent 2 weeks in France…even stayed in a house built by the Templar Knights, about 2 hours from Bordeaux!

  • brandi October 13, 2009, 10:09 am

    aw, that will be so much fun!!!

    I’ve only been to Honduras, but we’re hoping to go visit my sister and her husband in Spain next year while they’re there working. Should be fun 🙂

  • Nicole (dishin') October 13, 2009, 10:12 am

    You’re so lucky to be going to England in just a few months. So exciting!!

    I’ve been to Ireland, Italy, Dominican Republic and Jamaica. Oh, Canada too!

    England, Scotland and France are on my list for a next trip!

  • Anne Marie@ New Weigh of Life October 13, 2009, 10:51 am

    That’s awesome!! I hope you have a great time!

  • Meg @ Be Fit Be Full October 13, 2009, 11:41 am

    What a great trip you have planned! I’ve been to Australia (study abroad), New Zealand, South Africa (honeymoon), London, Paris, Madrid and Seville. I really want to go to Greece and Croatia!

  • Bethany October 13, 2009, 12:08 pm

    My boyfriend is also from England–born in London and went to boarding school at Harrow (maybe your hubs is familiar?). How have you guys decided to do your citizenship? Do you have any desire to convert to EU for the health benefits? Think you may ever live there? I believe you have to give up your US rights though….can’t be both….It’s fun loving a Brit 😉

    • caitlin October 13, 2009, 12:20 pm

    Fun fun fun! We’re trying to save up for a big European vacay right now, but it probably won’t happen for a couple years. The boyfriend hasn’t been to Europe at all but I’ve been to Italy, Czech Republic, Austria, Germany, and Switzerland. I loved them all but would most definitely live in Florence or somewhere in Austria.
    Traveling is so fun!

    That sounds like fun! I love england…I have been several times and I always have a great time. As for countries I have been to…must be over 50??? More? I grew up (10 years in Africa and (6 years) in Asia, and travelled all over those continents. Now I live in Sweden, but am doing an internship in geneva, have been to most Western european countries, Russia, the US, and Ecuador! Do I win a prize for most travels/craziest parents who took me everywhere? haha

    Now only have Australia and Antarctica to cover and I’m done!

    A trip for your anniversary sounds fun! I’ve been to Mexico, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, Peru, England, Italy and Ireland for my honeymoon. Peru and Ireland were my favorites. Ireland because it’s absolutely beautiful, and Peru because it’s so exotic and has a mix of traditional and modern.

    I love England! I’ve been to Mexico, Bahamas, Puerto Rico, Domincan Republic, Tahiti, Thailand, England, France, China, Italy, Ireland, Brazil and Spain. I wish I could travel more!

    Sounds great! I read your other post- don’t worry about being vegetarian in England. It’s really easy to find veggie food- if all else fails, there are no shortage of Indian restaurants which have great options, but there are TONS of amazing places in London (make sure you check out Neal’s Yard in Covent Garden!)

    I am from the US, but live in Scotland so I guess that counts as foreign 😛 I’ve also lived in London, and been to France, Belgium, Germany, Luxembourg and Dubai. Australia is on my list of places to go to!

    What a great way to spend your anniversary! I was under Big Ben to ring in 2008, it was a fantastic New Years. During this month-long trip I went to England(obviously), Paris, Amsterdam, Venice and Barcelona. It was my childhood dream come true! I loved Barcelona, and cannot wait to return.

    I love traveling, especially internationally!
    So far I’ve been to Bahamas, Antigua, Puerto Rico, US Virgin Islands, France, Switzerland, Lichenstein, Austria, Italy, Fiji, New Zealand and Australia! And I’m still missing a few caribbean islands I think…
    Favorite place was Austria , least favorite was France.
