Cantousent Posted March 6, 2007 Share Posted March 6, 2007 (edited) My passport arrived. My Tickets are waiting for me. My hotel stays are all aranged. In three more days, I'll be on my way to merry old England. I just hope that the terrorists don't think I'm an important enough target to try to bring down my particular plane. :Cant's looking over his shoulder for suspicious characters icon: I'll be staying in London for a few days, then to Rutland and finally up to the Lake District. I think, while I'm up there, I'll go to Hadrian's wall and Scotland. I'd really like to go to Wales, but I don't think it's in the cards this time around. There's just too much to see close to our locations to drive that far just so I can say I've been there. It wouldn't be an issue at all except one of my favorite series takes place, in part, in Wales. We also purchased free pass cards for our stay. Most of the time while I'm on vacation, I let my wife and other guests decide where we go. I, on the other hand, decide how we're going to get there and the basic itinerary. That just basically means that I have to figure out how to accomodate everyone's desires. Same with this trip. However, I would like to see the British museum and library. I'd really like to visit the Elgin Marbles. It's a big tourist attraction in England and a sore spot with the Greeks. I've never been to England, but my sister has been a few times and my brother travels in the region frequently for business, logging probably a couple months all tolled between Wales, England, and France every year. So, with all that, if there's any place important to see while I'm up there, let me know. This trip has been long in the planning, like most of my vacations. It involves four of us, my wife, my sister, my nephew, and myself. That's fairly common also. My nephew is eleven, so I hope the experience is good for him. EDIT: ...And, be warned, there will be pictures.
