  1. Chicken Club

    08 Nov 2017
    Before making it to The London Eye I stopped in to grab some food at a nearby pub. There were a lot of different options in terms of food but “bar food” was typically my mainstay while I was there. I ordered a chicken club on a sourdough roll with…

  2. Pasta

    30 Oct 2017
    After exploring Hampton Court Palace for the better part of the day I went to a nearby pub for a late lunch. I ordered a Pasta with eggplant, lime and beef to fill up after walking through all of those royal chambers.  This painting was very deceptive because I believed…

  3. Fish and Chips

    17 Oct 2017
    It was Canada Day and I was in London enjoying some art museums. To get away from the crowds I went to a restaurant in Westminster. I knew I had to get some authentic Fish in Chips while in the UK so today was perfect to check that off my…

  4. Pato Taquito

    17 Oct 2017
    I’m starting a new series on the meals I enjoyed in Europe over the summer. While in London my friends introduced me to a chill, Spanish restaurant in Bloomsbury. The main course (Super Nachos) was very good but it was actually the appetizer that stood out to me. I glanced…

  6. Barcelona: Arc de Triomf

    13 Sep 2017
    After getting to know the Navas neighborhood in Barcelona I walked to Passeig Sant Joan to see The Arc de Triomf. I was fascinated by the arc because there is an Arc de Triomphe in Place Charles de Gaulle and there is also the Washington Square Arch. The Arc in…

  7. Barcelona: Via Laietana

    08 Sep 2017
    The Gothic Quarter or Barri Gòtic was probably my favorite location in Barcelona. (La Barceloneta is a close second) It’s the center of Barcelona’s “old town” and stretches from La Rambla to Via Laietana. I actively avoided La Rambla for a few days because of pickpocket activity (The terrorist attack…

  8. Barcelona: Jazz Sí

    01 Sep 2017
    After walking through Park Güell and hiking to the top of Parc del Carmel I needed to rest my legs. I discovered there was a jazz themed Tapas bar in Tamarit. Ever since I got back from New Orleans last year I’ve had a great appreciation for live jazz. The…

  9. Barcelona: Platja de Sant Sebastià

    30 Aug 2017
    When I got to Barcelona, Spain for the tail end of my trip to Europe I knew I had to visit the beach. I spent my first day brushing up on my Spanish and walking around the neighborhood I was staying. (Which was called Navas by the way) The Metro…

  10. Avignon: La Manutention

    28 Aug 2017
    One of the more difficult aspects of planning my first trip to Europe invloved figuring out the places I was going to. Initially it was going to be London and Barcelona. Paris was a late addition because getting a train there from London was very cheap. My friend and art…
