Ode to Autumn

Autumn in London is amazing!
These were just taken from a short stroll through Hyde park.

Today is another Tube strike day.  Though I welcome the extra day indoors and not out braving the cold, I'm really hating the guilt that comes with taking so many days off :/

Also, every week I am excited by the prospect of snow!  But London doth disappoint.

Last week, I bought a pumpkin pie from whole foods!  It was delicious.   And also roasted some chicken drumsticks with gravy for a mock thanks giving dinner :D
Not being American or even living in the U.S I thought a mock dinner was enough effort :O.

Quad biking in Paros and Lake Como

 Greek Sweets
Whilst traveling in Greece, the best way to get around is to rent some quad bikes.  They are so fun!  Though my only experience of riding one lasted  around 2 mins and under 30k/h.  The rest I spent clenching Ed's back.  The best time was down the huge stretches of cliff-side highways along the ocean. 

OH can't believe I forgot about this!  I saw 4 shooting stars in the span of 30 mins in Santorini.  But it doesn't feel as special now, knowing they're so common.

In front of our pretty hotel in Lake como.
