Planes, Trains and Automobiles…and Maybe a Boat.


It’s been a busy travel month and it’s about to get busier. If you’ve been following along (and thank you if you have), you know Rachel and I were in Jordan for a week…


before I was off to the Gulf Coast of Florida to visit family, soak up some much-needed sun and eat  pretty much everything I could get my hands on.


Now I’m back in rainy London, finishing up my Jordan posts and planning trips to Ireland, Scotland, Singapore, Malaysia,Hong Kong and Greece.  Just to keep things interesting, I decided this was also a good time to redesign and move my blog.  It’s a little crazy, but I’ll keep you posted on the blog move and my upcoming travels.  Thank you for reading and, hopefully, sticking with me through the bumpy parts of the transition.

Have you traveled to any of these places?  I’m always looking for great travel tips and advice!  Please share!

    You’ve got a busy travel schedule! I just got back from Scotland and Ireland (a week in each) ~ had a great time despite the cold/snow for most of it. Beautiful places!

      I loved your pictures. They were gorgeous! I’m hoping for a little sun while we’re there. 🙂 Did you have any fabulous meals while you were in Ireland? What was a highlight of your trip?

    Hard to pinpoint a highlight of the trip as we truly enjoyed everything we did. If I had to pick two things to be at the top of the list, it would be horseback riding in County Cork and the boat tour to the Cliffs of Mohr. The sun was out, it was warm and we were outdoors enjoying the fresh air/beautiful vistas.

    Besides the breakfast at Kate’s B&B in Doolin, none of the meals stand out as fabulous but I can say we didn’t have a bad meal at any of the restaurants we ate at. All had vegetarian options as well. Breakfast at Kate’s was fantastic ~ I wanted to eat everything on the menu!

    ENJOY your trip and let me know if you have any other questions about Ireland or Scotland.

    Hi Megan,
    It wasn’t so rainy today! So fingers crossed spring has finally arrived in England!
    Can you give anymore details on the move?

      Hi! I think I saw the sun today, but only for a minute! Most of the crying and whining parts of the transition are over, but there are moments. Still trying to teach myself everything there is to know about and bluehost. I set a date of May 1st for the switch, but I’ve set it up so this site will forward to the other. Or at least I hope it will, otherwise there will be more crying and whining. Hehe.

        I really want to change mine over for more control and professionalism but I haven’t a clue how to even start going about it! Any tips?

        I should actually do a blog post about how not to migrate a blog, since I’ve done everything the hard way. Live and learn. I’ve been taking notes and outlining what I’ve done so far and as soon as I organize it, I’ll post it! I think it’s a good idea to spend some time looking through other blogs, bookmarking the formats you like and possibly notating the template they’ve used (usually at the bottom of the front page) if they’ve used one. I would also think about the website name and if you want it to be a .com or a .org or .net. Just an fyi, you don’t necessarily have to migrate from if you just want to have a .com url as can help you change your domain name without migrating. Once you thought of a few domain names, you can see if anyone else has the name you want by going to and searching to see if anyone else already has it. I would also see if the names is available on twitter, fb and whatever other social media is out there since it’s a good idea to tie it all together. It depends on how “into” it you eventually want to be. The next step is to purchase your “domain name” and decide who will host your site. Some hosts like Bluehosts and GoDaddy will arrange the purchase of and registration of your site domain as one step. I didn’t do it that way, and it ended up being a pain. Anyway, it’s a good start and I’m starting to bore even myself. Let me know what you decide to do!

    Have you guys seen the movie? (trains, planes, automobiles) It was hillarious! Oh, and the pictures are great! 🙂

    • Megan says:

      Ha! Funny you should mention that movie. That is one of our Thanksgiving Day traditions….watching Steve Martin freak out over the car rental is classic. I still ugly cry at the end of that movie. 🙂
