Ever since getting my kindle, I’ve had the option to read both some very good classics that I’ve been waiting to read, but also a bunch of fun books that I would never, ever buy in the store. One of these was Are You There Vodka? It’s me, Chelsea. by Chelsea Handler. As it turns out, she’s a fairly funny lady and has written a couple of books that I recently read during my flights to and from Europe. Her first book was My Horizontal Life: A Collection of One-Night Stands. This one is quite short, but is a collection of essays about a number of men that she’s been with. Many of these one-night stands actually led to more long-term relationships, but the scenarios that lead to them are always pretty hilarious. I mean, if you chose to live so ridiculously and have such a funny set of parents (a European mother and a Jewish father who resells used cars), it’s a good thing to have an amazing sense of humor about it!


[good reads] great britain

December 24, 2017

Today I’m leaving for my next grand adventure! I’m headed to Great Britain tonight and will arrive on Christmas Day in London. Knowing me, of course this meant that I purchased Lonely Planet’s Great Britain book. I should seriously do commercials for these books I love them so much, even though this one in particular is a little too big and bulky to carry around. Nevertheless, I like the paperback versions more than the digital because it’s just so much more comfortable to thumb through them. I feel like I always get lost in digital books.

Anyway, my trip plans are still a bit up in the air but for sure my first plan is to arrive in London and then hurry on over to Edinburgh as soon as possible because in just a few days I will be headed on a 3 day, 2 night tour of the Scotland Highlands and the Isle of Skye. Even though it probably would have been possible for me to do Scotland on my own, not driving makes it that much more difficult and relying on public transportation for the amount of time that I have allotted for this trip just isn’t enough! Anyone have any fun Great Britain trip tips to give me as I take off?!?
