EVERYTHING COMES WITH CHIPS! Another Fun Blog on the Joys of the UK

Knowing that I am always looking for first-person summaries of travel abroad, a friend of mine -- a Brit living in the States -- just sent me along the following post, which seems to have gone viral.  It is a set of one-liner observations made by an American, Scott Waters, who has made several trips to the UK.

Overall, it is not bad and, I must admit, many of his observations resonate with mine, and it made me glad that I leave for the UK again in a couple weeks, for my tenth trip to this wonderful country!

Motherhood Around the World

My wife recently came across this blog -- Motherhood Around the World, which is run by Joanna Goddard and her excellent Cup of Jo blog -- and sent it to me.  It is really interesting, as it explores, from a first-person perspective, the oft unique and also common challenges women face raising children around the world.  I find particularly interesting the posts where someone has moved to a different country and are raising kids in a place culturally foreign to their originally known way of life.
