Super Blood Moon Eclipse


This was the Super Blood Moon during its orange blood moon stage as viewed from Batheaston, England near Solsbury Hill.  I took this with a Nikon DSLR with a 300m lens.  These images are straight out of my camera with out any editing whatsoever.


This was before the Moon turned into its Blood Moon phase.


This was after the Blood Moon during the eclipse, to which I finally fell asleep to get two hours of sleep in before getting up for work.  It was so beautiful. We could see it from our bed so I fell asleep cuddled up on my husband’s chest watching the moon as I drifted off to sleep.


Q: Did you get to see it from your part of the world? How did it look? Get any photos?

Where Will You Go?



Where will you go?

This year I have not had the opportunity to go outside of England, though my husband and kids did travel back across the pond to the US this summer.  It has been a busy year with much going on.  However I am now in a job that I love and things seem to be going in the right direction.  I am already looking at where we will go in 2016 and the different options are exciting.  I still want to take my family back to ‘old stomping grounds’ so that they can experience it for the first time.  Austria, Italy, Germany, Sweden, and Norway are a few on that list.  However I just realised that next year is the big anniversary for the artwork by Bosch and would love to go to the huge 2016 Exhibition in the Netherlands to see so much of his artwork in one place.

So where will you go?

Christine: For this coming year, I will be traveling to the east coast of America, Mexico, and Belize (as of right now) and will be sharing my travel stories from these places. I will also continue sharing my Houston adventures as well as fun Texas day/weekend trips. As long as I have at least 1 trip to look forward to at any given time, I’m a happy girl!

Sara:  My blog, SARA SEES, is my little online diary documenting my favorite things — traveling and music! I love to share stories, photos, and tips to encourage people to get out of their comfort  zone and TRAVEL! I want people to know that it is possible totravel as a college student/young adult on a budget!
I’m currently loving life as an expat in Dublin, Ireland so I’m sharing a lot more posts specifically about Ireland and expat life now, but still sharing stories on previous travels around Europe!
