It’s feeling particularly Fall-ish this evening with brooding skies and dried leaves skittering across the pavement. It’s the sort of night that makes me long to bundle up in sweater, scarf and sassy boots and visit England. That’s just what I plan to do March 26-27, 2011 during the Travel Bloggers Unite (TBU’11) conference in Manchester.
It’s been a lifelong dream of mine to visit England, and I’m so excited that my first trip there will be with a whole slew of fabulous writers, photographers, and travelers gathered to learn from stellar experts in areas such as podcasting, creating videos, and becoming savvy in business and public relations.
Early this year I started reading the Simply Zesty blog and have learned so much from their posts and delightfully informative videos. I’m so thrilled that Niall and Lauren will be coming in from Ireland to speak.
TBU’11 is the brainchild of my friend and travel expert Oliver Gradwell. A very funny guy and super hard worker, Oliver has done a fabulous job organizing a first class event that is not only going to be great fun, but highly informative and beneficial to both beginner and experienced bloggers.
As our beautiful Indian Summer is replaced by crisp Autumn mornings, rainy afternoons and blustery nights, my imagination turns once again to hot, sunny mornings in Cancun, Mexico. While I loved nearly all the food on this trip, one of my favorite things was breakfast. Every morning we were treated to a dizzying selection of freshly baked breads and pastries, ripe fruits, beautiful vegetables and cold cuts, and an array of hot dishes, from ratatouille and Mexican-style chard to build-your-own omelets and crispy fried potatoes.
I’m afraid I stuffed myself rather happily during my 4-day stay, and loved every moment of it. 🙂
What is your favorite breakfast while on vacation?
