Adventures in the UK

March 8, 2008 Comments off

Driving over here in England is “great fun”.  I’ve actually gotten to the point where I’m comfortable driving on the wrong side of the road, and on the wrong side of the car.  I can even take roundabouts at maximum speed!  🙂

The flat I’m staying at in Reading is across the street from a major mall with lots of restaurants, so that’s nice and convenient!  Ironically there’s a Chili’s, Starbucks, Pizza Hut, McDonalds, and even a Krispy Kreme, along with a handful of other restaurants lining both sides of the river next to the mall, so a taste of home is not too far away.  I’m still getting my morning Starbucks hot chocolate!

This morning on the drive to the office (in Kingsclere – about 25 minutes south on a bunch of back roads) we discovered a new style of music on the radio I’ve never heard before: punk rock with bagpipes.  Only in the UK!

Well, back to work!  If you’d like to catch up with the travels of one of Kaitlyn’s favourite toys, Milk Dud, keep an eye on
