An almost daily conversation in my home goes something like this:
Me: "I'm so excited for/to/that/etc.!!!!!"
Chris: "Okay/Cool/Nice." (If I'm lucky I get a "Niiice.")
Me: "It's not exciting to you?" or walking away in defeat.
The French don't even have a way to say, "I'm excited." If you say, "Je suis excité" it means you're aroused, which maybe you can say to your spouse, but you probably don't want to run around France telling everyone how excité you are to be in France.
Twinings is a must visit for any visitor (or anyone for that matter...in my humble opinion) in London Town, and I made a new discovery on my latest visit. At Twinings you can take a masterclass and learn all about the history of tea while tasting fine and varied teas. You can book a private class for a minimum of two people, or a regular class for a minimum of six people, and you can also book a bespoke blending experience for a maximum of six people. So for Londoners, I recommend this as a fun company outing or outing with friends and family. No matter, definitely call ahead or email to reserve your spot! You can check out the details here.
One of my favorite places to visit in England is Bath. It's so full of history and charm, and as a Jane Austen junkie, I like to think I'm walking amongst her spirit there. It's a perfect day trip from London or other nearby cities like Oxford or Bristol, but it's also a great little weekend getaway. Bath is a small city, so there are a few tourist staples one must do in Bath(other than walk around and enjoy the quaint town): 1) visit the Roman baths (duh), 2) visit the Jane Austen Centre, and 3) have tea or a meal at Sally Lunn's for the famous Bath bun.
I finally went to my first game at Old Trafford, and it was more glorious than I could have ever imagined. I've always heard, from all different folks who had ever been to a game at Old Trafford, that the atmosphere is a very special one, but when you're used to watching these games on TV, it's difficult to imagine what that really means.
When I was in Taiwan, we visited my uncle at the cemetery. This was unlike any cemetery I've ever seen, and it was kind of the most amazing cemetery I have ever been to. I know that's weird to say about such a place, but not only was it a peaceful paradise for the resting souls and their loved ones who visit them, but it also is no doubt the future of cemeteries.

Old Town Shenkeng is famous for it's stinky tofu. As soon as you arrive the pungent smell invades your nostrils like a men's locker room. There's so much to see though, and it's a charming quaint street lined with all kinds of shops for eats and goodies...mostly different kinds of eats, with each shop offering you all sorts of samples, so it's almost like having lunch at Costco, but better.
The Dodgers are in the World Series for the first time in twenty-nine years and it's both very exciting and extremely stressful. I can't say I'm an educated baseball fan, but as a native Angeleno, I was born a Dodgers fans and as such the team is part of my identity. We often refer to baseball as "America's favorite past time," and it is in fact very nostalgic for me. I love going to Dodger games, because it reminds me of when my dad would take my brother and I to games and we'd chow down on Dodger dogs, which at seven or eight years old seemed massive. It also reminds me of going with my Girl Scout troop, chowing down on Dodger dogs, and having so much fun but hardly even being aware of what was actually happening in the game. So, I have many a fond memory of baseball, of the Dodgers, and of Dodger Stadium.
