Souvenirs from Around the World

I got this idea from Andy’s My REAL Wall except I used souvenirs instead of postcards. I took some of my souvenirs that I bought or saved during our trip around the world.. and placed them on my whiteboard/corkboard. Click the photo or here to view the Flickr page with notes for each souvenir.

Headed Home

Ivan, Jennifer and I woke up very early on November 3, 2009.  Jennifer couldn’t sleep last night.  She kept hearing the songs from Priscilla Queen of the Desert in her head.  I guess she was also thinking about flying back home.  I know she’s sad to be going back to Las Vegas.  Ivan and I will remain in England.  In a few days time, we’ll be headed to Africa for a 54 day organized tour of Africa.  Read about our Africa trip on Ivan’s blog.

Jennifer boarded her plane to Atlanta, Georgia, USA.  It tooks 10 hours to arrive.  Jennifer had to move her luggage for the next flight.  Good thing it was all in the same room!  She had a 3 hour layover in Atlanta.  Most of that time was going through customs.  She got on a plane headed to Vegas which took 3 1/2 hours.

So, that’s the end of our trip.  Thanks for reading about our adventures!

Comedy, Fondue and Bright Costumes

Ivan, Jennifer and I met up with Neal at La Tasca on November 1, 2009.  It was a great meal as usual.

We got a train into the city.  We went to watch the show Change.  It features an Italian man named Arturo Brachetti.  He quick changes into different outfits.  It’s really amazing to see!  He’s pretty fast at it!  The stage had a big box and it turned and opened into a different rooms.  It’s a fun show.

We stopped by The Comedy Store to pick up tickets and reserve our seats for the show.  We walked to Busabi Thai for dinner.  There was a short line.  I had the banana curry.  Ivan got the Geng Gari Gari while Jennifer got the green chicken curry.  The food comes out fast and is always amazing!

We walked back to see The Comedy Store Players at The Comedy Store.  Ivan loves contributing to the show providing things like when the players ask for a job or a type of theatre show.  The show is always really fun and keeps you cracking up.

Ivan, Jennifer and I chilled in the room on November 2, 2009.  Ivan wanted to take us to Loughton where he grew up.  But, we didn’t get a chance to.  I’m sure we will see it next time!

We walked to the Gourmet Pizza Company.

Jennifer got a chicken and vegetable one and I got a banana one.  I can’t recall what Ivan had.  The pizza was very tasty here.

We walked back to the hotel and relaxed more.

We took a train into London.  We went to St. Mortiz for dinner.

Ivan ordered us fondue with bananas, potatoes and bread.  We dipped the food into the tasty cheese.  It was really yummy!  Ivan and Jen were so stuffed afterwards.

Next, we went to see the musical Priscilla Queen of the Desert.  This musical has lots of great songs like I’ve Never Been to Me, Pop Musik, Always on My Mind and I Love the Nightlife. Jason Donovan plays Tick/Mitzi.  His performance isn’t anything special though.  Jennifer really thought Oliver Thornton was fantastic in his role as Adam/Felicia.  The costumes are so bright and colorful.  Wow, this is a fun musical!  I recommend it if you want to have a fun time watching a good story and hearing some great tunes.

Spooky London

I said goodbye to my dad on October 30, 2009.  Ivan and Jen said goodbye to Ivan’s parents.  We got on a train in the afternoon to London.

We checked in to the Marriot West India Quay.  It’s a great hotel in the Docklands.  We got a nice room overlooking the docks.

We took a train into the city.  We met up with Ivan’s brother Neal for drinks. 

We walked to Satsuma for dinner.  I had some banana sushi rolls and yaki soba with bananas.  Ivan and Jen shared some spicy tuna rolls and marinated tofu steak.  Ivan got the yaki soba with chicken.

Jennifer got the yaki soba with Japanese fish cakes and prawns. 

Afterwards, we walked to the Avenue Q theatre.  We saw Avenue Q.  It’s a really funny show with puppets!

Ivan and Jennifer went to see Saw VI on October 31, 2009.  They thought it was good movie  I stayed in the room to work on the blog, jump on the bed and watch monkeys on the tv. 

We took the train into the city.  We were going on the Blood and Tears Tour.  It was a special one for Halloween.  A lot of people in the group were dressed up.  We walked through the streets of London.  Our guide told us about murders and spooky things that have happened in London.  We did hear about Jack the Ripper as well. Our guide is writing a book about who he thinks was the real Jack the Ripper.  It seems everybody has a theory!  It was a good tour.  The guide walks really fast though.

We got a taxi to Kenza.  It’s a restaurant serving Lebanese and Moroccan cuisine.

Ivan and Jen shared the hummus, a pastry with chicken, falafel with prawns, a salmon dish and a chicken kebab.  I had a good chicken and banana kebab.  The food was pretty good!

Back to England

Ivan, Jennifer and I took a bus headed to London on October 28, 2009.  We took a ferry for an hour and a half.  It was 6:30 pm when we arrived in London. 

We went to dinner at Chowki.  Dave had a banana curry.  Ivan had a fish curry while Jennifer got a chicken madras curry.

Ivan thought it tasted better the last time we came.

We went to see the movie Couples Retreat.  The movie was only okay.  Ivan and Jen thought it would have been a lot funnier.

It was time to head to Southend.  We hopped on a train to Ivan’s parents house.  It was great to see my dad again!  We were all so tired and we went to bed shortly after.

I worked on the blog on October 29, 2009.  Ivan and Jennifer chilled and used the internet.

We went to dinner with my dad and Ivan’s parents.  It was good, but not as tasty as last time.
