I haven’t posted in almost a year! I don’t know why, it’s been a fun year with lots of trips and visits from family and friends.
Tel Aviv in April
The Cotswolds for a big 3 day hike across the English countryside ending with a surprise visit in Exeter,
Drunken party week in Sunny Beach with Kelly
Budapest for the Formula One race
Agata and Tyler came to visit…oh and, Arek and his family surprised Agata for a day.
Hung out with my long lost friend Marjo in Portugal
Mom spent a month with us
We also went on lots of mini trips around Bulgaria. In a couple weeks we are going to Morocco with long (enough time to explore) layovers in Germany and Brussels…also, we have tickets booked for Malta in January!
I can honestly say the the Docklands museum is one of the best museums I’ve ever been to. The exhibition starts with the history of London and the sugar slavery and ends in modern times. My favorite section was on WW2 and how the docks we affected during the Blitz. Ok, I’m lying, my favorite part was a side exhibition; the Sainsbury Study Centre which documents the history and development of one of the nation’s oldest food retailers, from its foundation in London in 1869 to the present day. Displays showcase the history of Sainsburys, with sections on the Sainsbury family, uniforms, advertising and the development of packaging since 1869!

Spice rack of my dreams.
Personal bunker for the dockyard employees.
Steel beams after a bomb explosion.
During the Blitz people would leave notes on their doors with forwarding addresses.
Our London trip was a great success, we accomplished everything we wanted to do with a few extra adventures. I have many more pictures to post and stories to tell but first I must unpack, pet the cats and somehow whip up a Christmas party.
We are having such a great time exploring England. Spent 4 nights in Exeter with our friends Jenner and Dan then jumped on a train to meet Kelly and Mat in Oxford. They picked us up in a cool rented car and drove us to the picturesque Cotswolds to hang out in a beautiful farm cottage for 4 nights. Here are some photos taken while we quickly explored Oxford in the 2 hours before meeting our friends.
