Somewhere in this maternity hospital on a warm and dry July day in St. Andrews, Scotland, Brian came into the world. A little more than eight years later on an even warmer October day in Hayward, CA, USA, Peg was born in this building. Five states, two countries, three marriages, four kids and […]
They go through my head as I go through my day. When I climb out of bed and see the city outside my window with the morning light streaming across the rooftops, I think of my cousins. I wish I could show them the colors and the way the sun crosses the northern sky. When […]
Here we are half way through the year, which seems fitting given our circumstances. We’re in the middle again. Living in two different countries, in the middle of a move. We’re also half way through our big vacation, and not fully settled anywhere. But it’s been a great week! I’ll say it again, I think […]
I got to go in to the office with Brian today. True, it may not be our favorite way to spend a Saturday morning, but he had an important meeting while the boss is in town and I really wanted to finally see where he spends his days. The four of them sat behind […]
Looking for a family friendly place to take the kids where they can roam freely, touch nearly everything and learn about the history of northern England, engineering, light, electricity, manufacturing, naval science and more? Looking for a place that will make you go, “Wow!” when you come through the doors? A place with a friendly […]
When Sharon and I finished with our trek through Gibside National Trust, she drove me to another nearby treat. The sun was starting to head towards the horizon, which meant it was about 3pm. That’s very nearly nightfall here in December and it was getting cold, but the slanting light made the already […]
You know one of the really nice things about being a cross cultural/international couple? One or both of us have family and friends all over the world. For now we’re back in Newcastle in north east England and we’re lucky enough to live just minutes from Brian’s aunt, uncle and cousins. It’s been years since […]
We’ve had such a whirlwind (literally) five days driving and trekking all over western Scotland, and I’ve had five days of getting in to the nuts and bolts of my new camera, so my posts are going to be a bit photo heavy for the next little while. I know you don’t mind. At least, […]
Remember how excited Brian was to see all that snow stacked up? It was so amazing we had to go back for more. Our previous visit to the visitor’s center on Mt. Rainier was just before the regular spring season, and the lodge was closed. We made plans to go back on our last full […]
So we have ten days to spend in the Tacoma/Seattle area. What to see, what to see? Well, what kind of stuff do we like? Put us outside and we’re both happy. Show us a few animals, and throw in an ice cream cone and we’re on top of the world. Guess what we found? […]
What is one to do when bringing a Scotsman to see Washington state for the first time? A Scotsman who loves the outdoors, cool weather, hiking, mountains, trees, and water? You show him everything! I think Washington was custom built for Brian. As soon as we got off the plane and he felt the crisp […]
Who are these people?
Peg and Brian - An American photographer and her hot Scottish husband, expats and slow travelers out in the world and writing about it. Along the way we hope to see amazing sights, meet interesting people, stay in roach free lodgings and stay alive. So far, so good (except for the roaches).
