Great British Packing Guide


Packing for the United Kingdom can be tricky even in the summer time. I’ve learned after years of visiting and living there that the weather can change at any given time and the art of layering is important. The U.K. gets a bad rap for being rainy nearly all of the time, but in fact it is more often the case that it is simply overcast and cooler rather than wet. (more…)

A Return to London

Location: London, England

We settled on Laguna Beach because it was a part of the O.C. that I hadn’t been to yet and I had heard such great things about it.
