Alright so I have been meaning to jump all over this blog thing, but the honest truth is that I have been on the move since arriving home from Europe. Oh right Europe … So instead boarding the rehab train on this side of the Atlantic, I decided to jump the pond and corral this wandering appendage of mine in the UK… I just had a quick scan of that last sentence and thought I would give that explanation another go, this time in plain english, rather than the tongue chewing banter I delivered. Round 2… I dislocated my shoulder about a month ago, and decided to work through my physio in England. There we go a little more to the point. Although you might be asking yourself “Why England?”, and all I can say is when the you hit a bump in the road… you fly over the Atlantic with your girlfriend and make the best of a bad situation. Or I could say that the flights where super cheap, we had never been, and I really felt it would help expand my vocabulary which would in-turn make me sound exponentially more intelligent on this here blog. Either way it was a good call.
In a nutshell … We slept on a boat in Amsterdam, unknowingly drank 16 Euro coffees (ouch!), hired cruisers and mingled with 2 wheeled rush hour traffic (everyone is on bikes there, ridiculously cool), rallied our left handed rental car across the english countryside (only getting honked at once… chalk it up as a “win”), saw Stone Hedge, stayed on sheep farm, ate a proper Roast dinner in a legitimate english pub (awesome!), hung with Big Ben, had a look through London’s eye, kicked it with the queen/stood outside her house, walked, saw “Les Miserables” (actually pretty cool), rode trains, grabbed multiple lunches at one of Gordon Ramsey’s prospects, expanded my vocabulary ten fold, saw very few sets of bad teeth(stereotypes not living up), hopped a double-decker bus for two hours at midnight (best $2.30 we’ve ever spent), went over Abbey Road, stood on a castle, and took way too many pictures. Pretty unreal way to relocate a wing, and now it’s back on to business as usual.
