We arrived on the Eurostar in no time at all from London and were settled into our dorm room of an airbnb by 1 pm. Great location but really, a five star at an Airbnb is now meaningless to me. Remember- bring soap, hand towels, dishtowels, a few trash bags and a good attitude because […]
As I am in a must have Chinese food week I headed out today towards Aldgate , my newest favorite place to go. Also I needed to go to the bank so dumplings at Xi’an BIANG BIANG seemed right. The place was full, it’s big open windows looked clean so in I went. Though I […]

The Amazon 4 Star Store. Who knew? Not I. Fun to see but not much that I haven’t seen before. just an empty yard. Well,almost empty. Next to my new favorite shop snow peak. All sorts […]
