Afternoon Tea

I have been bugging Chris to take me for afternoon tea in Southport for forever! Finally, he took me. We went to Westminster Tea Rooms. As you walked in, it was as though you had stepped back in time. The staff were dressed in period pieces and the music was as though you were back […]

VanDusen Garden – Festival of Lights

For the past few years I have rung in the New Year with hundreds of strangers dancing in clubs in England and Vancouver. This year I wanted to do something a little bit different.

English Tarts – Mission, B.C.

I’m a sucker for anything British. No one knows that better than my best friend, Karleigh. For my birthday she made me a coupon for high tea. A few days ago I was finally able to cash it in. High tea, or afternoon tea, is an English tradition that includes tea, sandwiches, scones and cakes. […]

Nice, France

Whenever we fly over to England to visit family and friends, we always try to make a quick getaway to somewhere in Europe. Since we have been to Paris many times before, we decided to try somewhere different in France. This time we chose Nice in the French Riviera. Our flight was early in the […]
