British Museum, Eurostar to Paris, Hotel Du Louvre, and Le Thermidor

We had our last free English breakfast in our hotel. I tried Cafe Au Lait first. It’s half milk and half coffee coming out together in two different pipes. Then I tried Chocolatte. The machine had milk and chocolate alternating from the same pipe. Sugar was pre-added. I had tried five different drinks in three mornings.That’s the most variety I had in any hotel. The weather was so nice that we had beautiful sunshine and blue skies for the past two … Continue reading >>

Big Bus, Big Ben, Admiralty Arch, Nelson’s Column, St. Paul’s Cathedral, London Eye, Buckingham Palace, and Thames River Cruise

We got up early again to have our free English breakfast. I had a cup of Cappuccino. The machine first filled my cup with 3/4 of milk, then added coffee to it. After that, I tried a cup of Espresso, which was very bitter and only filled 1/4 of my cup. I ate a lot for breakfast because I knew that we probably wouldn’t eat lunch on time. Adventurer Jr. had a fever last night, he stayed at the hotel to … Continue reading >>

Ma‘as-sālama Morocco, Hello England

We were leaving Morocco today. We rose at 8 am and planned to take a shower but people were in there whenever we checked. We lost interests to the same breakfast we had for the past several mornings, and couldn’t finish most of it.

England, France, and Morocco Itinerary and Prep

We want to visit many countries in Europe and Morocco in Africa, but due to time constraints, we can only visit these three countries this time.

Adventurer Jr. III’s passport expires in Feb. 2018, so we’ll go at least 6 months before that to save on passport renewal fee. That leaves us December of 2016 time frame. … Continue reading >>
