An Evening Stroll Through the Streets of London

I don't care what it takes, we are moving to London. It's always been a dream of ours and it's becoming more and more of a real possibility each day. We both work from home. We both have very little tying us to stay in Portland. Following suit and making the plunge seems like the next step. Granted, it will take doing all the proper...

The Ampersand Hotel

This post is in collaboration with The Ampersand Hotel Arriving in London after an 11 to 14 hour flight can be a bit frazzling. Jade and I have taken this trip a few times and between the jet-lag, the usual cramped flight arrangements, and the having been up for almost 24 hours straight, we really just want to get in an cut out for the day....

London in an Instant

Author: Cory I think we're ready to just pick up & move to London. Granted this was only our second trip there, but sometimes that's all it takes to know. I knew that I wanted to be with Jade for the rest of my life first time I saw her. I know it sounds like a cheesy, romantic thing to say, but it's absolutely true. Every...

From London to Paris

I know it has been quite some time since our travels abroad. Real life took over, as it tends to do, and we never had the chance to talk in depth about Paris. We shared some polaroids and black and white film shots, but I hope you don't mind if we share more details now. As our time in London came to a close, we...

A Morning Stroll to Buckingham Palace

While we hadn't planned to go to Buckingham Palace (crowds aren't really our thing), but it seemed silly not to when we noticed on a map that we were in walking distance to it from where we were staying. We figured we would fit in a morning stroll over to it early in the morning. The air was cold so we bundled up and headed...

Notting Hill and Portobello Road

For years, I had avoided watching the movie Notting Hill. I'm a grump that way. But Jade kept asking me to watch it with her and finally I gave in. Now we've watched it countless times together. It's a ridiculously charming story about a average English bloke who falls in love with a super famous American movie star and all the quandaries they face to...

Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens

How beautiful it was to look out the window of our suite and gaze upon the gated entrance to Hyde Park. We had spent a few moments walking around Hyde Park Corner before tea a day or two before, but we really hadn't had the time to go deep into the park itself. Buttoning up our coats and slinging our cameras on, we started into the park...

Shake Shack at Covent Garden

I think that has become pretty obvious by the things we post on Endlessly Enraptured most of the time that Jade and I like to explore and discover new places to eat and take in local culture. We have both been wanting to try Shake Shack for ages now, since seeing the cheesy, fresh burgers covering our instagram feeds. When we found out last summer that...

Barons Court

We spent a lot of the time our first few days in and around our hotel while in London. Between the ridiculously lovely suite we were staying in and the crippling jet lag, it was difficult to leave. We finally had recovered enough by day four to wander beyond the realms of our hotel's district to outlying neighborhoods. We hopped on the tube and explored...

Dinner at Apsleys

This post was sponsored by The Lanesborough, a St. Regis Hotel. Follow them on Facebook and Instagram In my lifetime I have not been able to take part in a lot of the finer things in life. In fact, before meeting Jade, I would consider my quality of appetite and overall quality of life to be below average. I was a young bachelor who grew up sheltered in the woods...
