Look what happened now...
Ready, Set, Jet!
I must confess I have a weird accent. Most people are surprised when I speak. (Its ironic because I am recorded often for work. But thats a whole other story, on a totally different blog.) I've always read those horror books starring mysterious immortals, where their accent was so hard to trace, that I ended up being one. (Not immortal, just a fucked up accent.) It also is apparent if you spend anytime reading this blog, my choice in words belies my language skills.Sometimes I think in American or Spanish or French. My Mandarin is not that good...But the point to this ramble is:
I now live in the Lake District of England. As I travel England, Scotland, etc (see recent blog posts already) I am asked where I come from. I usually reply, "Can't you tell from my accent?" Knowing full well the people cannot. "I live in Cumbria!" (see map)
I usually receive a SUPER shocked look. Then I'm asked if I come from Canada. (WTF?) No one seems to ever think I come from the states, much less TEXAS, Anyway, back to the point here, I currently hang my hat (Tall, Texas Stetson, not) in Cumbria. While my NOLA buddy was in town visiting we endeavored to show her why it is considered the prettiest part of England. Here a few of our many pictures and some of the adventures. Please to enjoy a bit of the lakes...
We also stopped at Rheged, on the way. Read about #Minecraft here.
After that we went top Castlerigg. I had heard of this one, but never visited before. A 4,500 years old stone circle!
As you can see from the pictures, there was a TON of people there. There was a convention going on, plus normal lake tourists.
"Part 2 In The Lakes" to follow and more on Scotland, shopping and even the #Outlander tour we went on in next post.
Have a good week and see you at the airport!
