A Bit About Me

I am an American married to a British person. I grew up in the New York suburbs and went to university and law school in New York City. I came over to the UK with my law firm to do a two year stint in their London office - 22 years ago! I’ve since dropped working in law but have instead acquired a husband, two children and a dog. We live in North London near Hampstead Heath.

As a family of four (my husband, our 14-year-old boy/girl twins and me), we have travelled extensively in the USA and Europe as well as parts of South America, Asia and Africa.

The Hidden Gems I’ve Found

There’s an Elf Garden in North Cornwall that is a lot of fun for the whole family.

There’s a Pinball Museum in New York City that is more fun than the average museum we’ve visited. Its vintage pinball machines are available for the whole family to play after you pay your admission entrance.

The Roosevelt Island Tram, also in New York City, just requires an ordinary subway ticket and gives you a great view of Midtown Manhattan, as well as around the United Nations Secretariat Building area when you reach Roosevelt Island. This tram is the one featured in the Spiderman movie.

There’s an Elf Garden in North Cornwall that is a lot of fun for the whole family. A retired artist paints elves and scatters them throughout her large garden.

My Dream Destinations

We would all like to go to the Maldives for the sunshine and overwater bungalow experience. We would also love to do a road trip on Route 66 in the USA to see the small towns and all the wacky roadside attractions we have heard about.
