Good afternoon, Ladies and Gentlemen! Matthew here. We apologize for the delay in posting this, but we were pretty worn from our journey last night, so my body decided you fine people could wait an extra day. Our last day in San Francisco was a short, but busy one. After checking out of our
This is Val and oh my word, where do I even begin to tell you about our day? Well, after finishing our second blog post at 1 a.m. Sunday, we noticed we had yet to pack our stuff to leave the AirBnB. So we decided not to leave at 8 a.m. Sunday morning,
Hello again! Matthew here, reporting in from Walnut Creek, California! This entry is to chronical our third day in California. We had a blast, and I hope I’ll be able to convey that in the next few lines. Our day started at 8 a.m. with the normal 30-minute trek into San Francisco proper via BART and landed us
Hello! Matthew here. I would like to welcome you to another adventure with the Pearons! If you’ve joined us before, you know the drill – but if not, just try to keep up. Generally, we try to alternate blog entries, so you hear a bit from both of us, but there are exceptions made
Good morning, everyone! This is Matthew with the last of the actual posts of the “Surviving London” series. We hope to do a “What We Learned” wrap-up post about a week from now, just to give a brief synopsis of our overall thoughts. For now, I’m just going to give a brief rundown
This is Valeri and this post will hopefully be short and sweet … but I can’t promise that. We woke up this morning sad to leave London. Matthew had threatened many times that he was staying and I just knew I’d miss the beautiful city. However, I was also a bit excited for Paris –
Good afternoon! Matthew here, reporting from London. Today was bittersweet. It brought an end to our London adventure, but will mark the start of our journey to Paris. I can’t say I’m quite as excited as my wife is about France, but it will be a neat trip. We will only be there a day (closer to half
Good afternoon, everyone! Matthew here. I’ll be bringing you today’s report from London. Good news! We will be adding the pictures in our previous blogs today, because our hotel’s internet is behaving. If you’re like me and like pretty colors and shiny things, browse back through them. Today’s coffee stop was
Hello, this is Valeri. I’m just sitting here with my feet up in our hotel (boy do they hurt) waiting for the series nine premiere of Doctor Who to come on at 7:40 p.m. I know you’re all jealous … and you rightfully should be. Anyways, more on Doctor Who later tonight. We
Hello, everyone! This is Matthew again. Sorry to mix things up on you, but we’ve switched nights so I can pay attention to the Doctor Who series nine premier – which I will be watching “live” for the first time! Yes, people … I’m a Whovian. Embrace the geek. On a
Good afternoon, everyone! This is Matthew, reporting from London. (I wish I had more opportunities to use that phrase!). This is the sixth installment of Beauty and the Geek: Surviving London. According to Val’s Fitbit app, we walked about 14 miles today, bringing our week so far to 57.64 miles – roughly 132,127 steps.
Hey! Valeri here. We are somehow on our fourth day of London. Not sure how that happened. Everything just needs to slow down. After breakfast at the hotel, we went out to find our morning coffee. This morning’s choice was Prufrock and we were not disappointed … except, once again, no drip coffee.
Greetings from London! Matthew here. It’s my turn to write the blog again, so prepare yourself! The day started bright and early with breakfast provided by the hotel at which we are staying – Hotel Makedonia (read the review by clicking here). As usual, my plate was filled with all sorts of good-looking foods and
This post is written by Valeri Pearon. Matthew and I made a trip to Kansas City this past Wednesday and Thursday to use the New Theatre Restaurant giftcard my parents gave us for Christmas this past year.Although the play wasn’t until 7:30 p.m., we wanted to spend a little time in the city before making
Okay…we survived day two! No one ended up in the hospital, behind bars or otherwise disabled. :) We’ll give you a quick run-through of our activities! :) We started the morning with a visit to the Public Market on Pike Street. Of course, there was a coffee shop visit in the process. :) We had
