As I watched the final few minutes of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part Two, a sort of emptiness sunk in, as if I had lost a pice of myself. It was bittersweet, as I was elated that the story had come to a resolution, but wistful that Harry’s journey was over.

Summer has officially made its way to Southern California, so we have our fans and air conditioner working overtime. All this heat has us daydreaming of cooler locales, foggy mornings, rainy afternoons, and snowy weekend getaways. In that spirit, we’re excited about our next two planned trips!

Six years ago, I visited York for the first time with my study abroad class. The trip was an optional add-on, but everyone went. There was so much that I loved about the city, that I made it a point to have Julie and I transit through there on our way to London. Though we certainly could have made the train trip down from Edinburgh to London in one day, York is a great place for an overnight stop, or longer if you have more time.
6 Years As I sit here writing this post, it has been six years to the day (we even departed on a Thursday) since I left for my ten week study abroad adventure in Oxford, England (thanks Chris for reminding me!). I was twenty-five years old and in my […]
