Let me fall asleep in your back. My hand tucked beneath your briefs. Inhaling your scent intoxicating. Breaths slow and steady flowing against skin so soft. Warm feelings igniting in the darkness of night. Suffocating passion. Drowning in lust.
Let me fall asleep beside you. My arms wrapped around you. Dreaming of this moment time and again. Afraid to wake and you’re not there.
Let me fall asleep on your chest. Listening to the beat of your heart. A rhythm tells the depths of your soul no words can ever speak. One rhythm becomes two dancing the song of songs.
Let me fall asleep beside you. Hands to myself only touching with my presence. Peacefully dreaming knowing you’re here only to wake with the sun.
During my stay in London, I experienced the tube, train, plane, black cab, double decker bus, and of course getting lost all along the way in this enormous city! From Dalston to Waterloo, I pretty much wandered about getting into random adventures. Thankfully, I started at the Sky Garden where I could get a good view of the city that would swallow me whole. Then ventured over to the London Eye and said Hey! to Big Ben near Westminster Abbey. I felt as though I was in Downton Abbey, but not really.
Did I mention I got lost? Oh my! Without any phone service too! Maps are great when you understand the crisscross streets that loop and loop and loop. I would not recommend exploring London without an international plan. I myself prefer to travel with least distractions, but I learned my lesson here.
Despite getting lost several times, I enjoyed the diversity of this huge city. I experienced Street Feast filled with amazing foods and beverage, playing quizzes at the rooftop bar, meeting the only 2 English men in London who insisted on talking about Trump at a bar named after a Dance Studio (confusing the next day when you check your bank statement. Did I sign up for a dance class last night??). However, once again the most amazing part was catching up with great friends from all over who just so happened to end up in London around the same time. Oh and Mammamia! Most definitely a great musical to catch if you’re ever in London! I will not spoil it!!!
Of course I had to venture back to one of my favorite cities to visit mum and dad and eat bread until my eyes popped out whilst stuffing down mum’s Irish fry. I needed all the energy possible to keep up with all the craic! From a morning stroll through the market to late night tea and scones, the Irish sure know a thing or two about hospitality.
Home Warming Party Belfast, NI
Besides the food, the views along the coast are to die for! This time I wandered around New Castle, NI and wandered through Titanic Studios in Belfast rather than hunt down sheep. New Castle, where Narnia was inspired. Titanic Studios where Game of Thrones is filmed and of course the Titanic was built somewhere nearby…
The coast is so peaceful, though pretty cold for this non-native! Make sure to bring a jacket for the Irish weather is so unpredictable!
I thoroughly enjoyed my time in Germany this year catching up with amazing friends and vicariously enjoying the child-hood memories of Spaghetti Ice. YES! That is ice cream featured above made to look like spaghetti with its strawberry paste sauce, white chocolate sprinkled parmesan and whip creamed stuffed cheese. A lactose and tolerant person’s worse nightmare and dream come true. I enjoyed having spaghetti ice in Mannheim where it was invented!
Dinner with my German Family
Spaghetti ice comes pretty close to this huge wine barrel made into a local restaurant and apparently the largest wine barrel in the world! You could drink yourself drunk inside drowning in the sweet aromas of authentic German food made to order with vegetables and produce from your local farms. The white asparagus was in season and I just couldn’t resist!
Last, but not least, you must wash it all down with a hearty German beer from your local Biergarten. I must say during my travels thus far, the Germans have the best beer and wine! Don’t quote me on that since I have plenty more places to explore on my list. However, I would recommend adding the historical town of Speyer filled to the brim with lovely people, food, hidden castles, and a random Salsa dance night under the stars!
