The London trip quickly approaches and I am ready to pop! I’ve never been out of the country before (unless you count Juarez, Mexico or flying over Canada to get to Alaska and I don’t count that), so I am ready to cross the pond!
I cannot wait to take a train to Stonehenge and look over the country side that is the home of so many of my favorite books. I wish I could ride a horse, but me thinks it will be too cold for that. I am taking an empty journal, Netbook, and documentary app in my camera phone. Soaking in all of the writing fodder to last me a couple of years, I plan to breathe it all in and make it a part of me.
I am a little worried about getting all I need into that 50lb weight limit for the luggage. I plan to put all heavy items in my carry-on. Any weight saving tips you have are appreciated.
My daughter wants me to be to be sure and let you all know that a ferocious dog (very like a werewolf), a black belt in Karate, and her boyfriend (see picture below) will be house sitting with her while I am gone, so criminals beware! We are well protected, not to mention, the TV is broke, there are no valuables in the house, and everything we own could be described as garage sale eclectic.
So “Cheerio” and “I say ol’ chap”, and “God save the Queen.” I will be brushing up on my Brittish in the next few weeks. What about travel tips? Any travelers out there that have specific tips to make our trip more hassle free? Scoop!
