I don't blog often, obviously.  But recently some photographer friends suggested I blog some experiences.  My husband and I are in the U.K. this year while he works on a project.  We are living in a small flat near the Eton/Windsor area.  We are a short walk from Windsor Castle where you'll often find the Queen's flag up on the weekends. 

Since we aren't living here permanently, it's hard to be all in.  We don't have a U.K. phone number or bank card so many services aren't available to us.  We don't have a car, so traveling around the area is usually places within walking distance.  If we do need to visit or go touring outside of our little area in Windsor, we need to take taxi or the train.  We should maybe save the train conversation for another day.  0_o

Among the best... the food, Sunday roasts, the history, the architecture, the lifestyle, tea.

 I never drank milk in my tea before coming here (I'm allergic to it!) but I tried adding soy milk to my English breakfast tea and was very impressed.

 A look down Eton High Street standing at the Windsor/Eton bridge.  This is the walk we take to go to the shopping district, the market, the train stations, pubs and restaurants.  It's just minutes from Windsor Castle.

Among the worst... my husband's work hours, no dogs, no car, the lifestyle, tv programming, combo washer/dryers, learning the "lingo"

It's amazing how different it actually is here.
