Drew has always wanted to fly a plane, maybe ever since he can remember. A few weeks ago I became aware of the fact that small aircraft businesses and private pilots often offer “Discovery Flights” for those interested in flying. So imagine my delight, when one happened to pop up on Groupon! I secretly purchased … Continue reading

I love hats, but unfortunately don’t have many opportunities to wear them. After searching tons of British sites, I finally found one. What I had … Continue reading
