Me and My Alien Go to America

Stuart and I made it to America the other day. Doesn’t sound that complicated. We fly around the world and between countries pretty regularly. He’s from the UK, I’m from the US. The two countries usually have a pretty open door policy between the two. So, what makes it worth writing a whole post aboutContinue reading “Me and My Alien Go to America”

What is COVID Protocol Like in the UK?

That question is a bit like asking “what’s it like in the US?” the answer is entirely dependent on where you are in the country. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect when I came over to the UK. In the news the UK response was painted as “not great” but “better than the US”.Continue reading “What is COVID Protocol Like in the UK?”

Roadtrip to England

We have a friend that lives in Southampton, England. That friend had a week off of work and asked if we’d like to come stay with him and his family for a couple days.

The Questions Post: July 2020

I’ve been home on land for just over three weeks now. Life in VT is kind of like it normally is – except that whole coronavirus thing. People normally find out that I just got back when they ask me where my husband is. When I tell them he’s still onboard and they do theContinue reading “The Questions Post: July 2020”

Part III: Acclimating to Land Life

I went to get a gallon of milk and realized as I went to pay I didn’t know if I could use cash or if it had to be with a credit card. This was my first time buying something in person from someone since this pandemic started. I didn’t know the protocol. Suddenly inContinue reading “Part III: Acclimating to Land Life”
