Yeah, this is way, WAY overdue...I apologize. This will be my last entry in this series for now, unless something MAJOR happens. 1/3 - Roast Pork Neck: If they hadn't told me it was neck, I wouldn't have known really. Quite hammy. 1/6 - Pork Knuckle: This was AWESOME. Think of the most succulent and … Continue reading Rhys’ New Foods List – January/February
All-nighters are definitely on my Murtagh list. I’m too old for this stuff. The last day (a day for us is from when we get up to when we go to bed, not this inconvenient 24 hr setup) has been a blur. Let's recap: 01:00 PM – Awaken from a late night (Indi only had … Continue reading An Irish Welcome
Our bags are packed once more. We handed the keys over to our landlord and now just wait until it’s time to go to the airport. The old, familiar process has remained unchanged throughout our journey. It WILL be interesting to see what other hoops we’ll have to jump through at security. It’s hard to … Continue reading Bob Loblaw’s Prague Blog
...to come home, our thoughts turn first to - where on earth are we gonna stay?? We have renters in our house for another year contract, which is fine, because that mortgage is awfully high for us to cover right off the bat anyhow. Our families have been through some rough stuff while we've been … Continue reading As we begin preparations…
12/1 Jowl, Jyunkei – Served at our favorite meat-on-sticks place in Osaka, Jowl was a tough and well-seasoned beef-type meat that I enjoyed thoroughly. 12/3 Margherite Pizza – Margherita Pizza is like a cheese pizza, but in Italy, it’s totally different. It’s the best pizza I’ve ever eaten. Who’d have thought I enjoyed basil so … Continue reading Rhys’ New Foods List – December
So it’s snowing/raining here, really cold back in Oklahoma, our next destination is the UK and they are having crazy snow! I’m wearing my Hawaiian shirt out of spite. Speaking of our next destination, we have the final destinations mapped out. We’re spending a week in Ireland, hopefully in the western portion of the country … Continue reading It’s Cold Everywhere!
Between the two of us, Rhys and I have lost 118 pounds since April. ONE HUNDRED AND EIGHTEEN in NINE months. That's extreme. So what changed? Beginning Now On the surface, not a whole lot. Yes, we're walking more - but no additional exercise. We eat when we're hungry, and we're not on any sort … Continue reading 118 pounds later…
Yesterday was a bit of a low key day. That’s really your best option when you wake up around noon. The days of waking up automatically at 9:00AM are long gone. We must’ve left that internal initiative in New Zealand. Not the worst thing in the world, for sure, but when the wintertime sun starts … Continue reading Good Times
Well, Indi and I sat down tonight and not only crunched the numbers for what we need to make it as long as we can in Europe, but what we'll need to restock when we get home. Remember, we sold EVERYTHING when we left (from the furniture to our clothes to our bedsheets) and we … Continue reading Mr. Sulu, set a course…for home.
Christmas abroad is an odd thing. For one, it doesn’t REMOTELY feel like it should be Christmas. We’ve had a long eight-month string of Saturdays and we often have a difficult time figuring out what day of the WEEK it is, let alone a major holiday. Christmas is a big holiday for the Czechs just … Continue reading So This is Christmas
