York, England: National Railway Museum (not just for train enthusiasts!)

After spending four hours at the Castle Museum in York, we decided to hike over to the National Railway Museum. It is a bit of a walk, so if you are short on time, you might consider taking a taxi. Also, you might want to save your touring feet for all the walking you’ll do […]

York, England: Castle Museum

York is filled with at least two full days worth of goodness–and that’s picking and choosing from many worthy venues. Using the Rick Steves and Michelin guidebooks, we settled on our top three sites: the Castle Museum, the National Railway Museum, and the York Minster. We also enjoyed an evening stroll around the city’s beautiful […]

A Family Reunion (of sorts) and the British Library (again)

Trudy in a nearby field. Taken yesterday in England on my Blackberry Pearl. Saturday, Roxi and I went into London to meet a cousin of mine at Waterloo Station. Actually, it was more of a drive-by reunion since we only spent about 15 or 20 minutes together. But wow-we’d never met before, so it was […]

Documentation Centre and Nazi Party Rally Grounds in Nuremberg, Germany

Our trip to Germany included some stops that I must admit wouldn’t have been on my list of things to see had it not been for Mr. DJ’s interest in the First and Second World Wars. If it were up to me, we’d be in museums and cafés. If it were left up to Roxi, […]

Imperial War Museum London and Whole Foods Market Kensington
