3 Weeks to go!

I had a bit of a wobbly about our overseas holiday at the start of this week. In fact you may have read my post about it, which I later deleted when I realised how totally ridiculous I was being. Anyway, most of my little issues have now been resolved and I am once again feeling quite excited about our holiday. So I thought I would tell you a bit about it.

We're doing the European Experience with Trafalgar Tours and we're also spending some time in Guildford and in London. On the tour we will be spending nights in: Amsterdam, Rhineland, Innsbruck, Venice, Rome (2 nights), Florence, Lucerne (2 nights) and Paris (2 nights).

Once back from the tour we get to spend a few nights with our friends in Guildford. While we're with them the girls are going to spend some time at Thorpe Park and we're also going to Windsor and hopefully we'll squeeze in a trip to one of my favourite places - Burley in the New Forest.

Then we're off to London. We're going to try to cram an awful lot into our time in London! On our itinerary we have: Madame Tussauds, Regents Park, Hop-on hop-off bus (you get to see all the important sights on the bus), the Tower, Greenwich, Little Venice, Camden market, Harrods, Covent Garden, Changing of the Guard, National Gallery, British Museum, Kensington Palace, London Eye, a London Walk and all sorts of exciting bits and pieces in-between. We've pencilled in plenty of shopping time to keep Rox happy as well ;-) And we plan a fair bit of socialising too! Shew!

It's all very exciting and when I am not getting tied up in knots over details, I am actually counting the days. We'll probably have to take a week off to recover when we get back though....I wish!

Oh, I hope you will be able to blog while you are gone. It would be nice to get a play by play description of what you're doing.

it sounds FANTASTIC, just wish you were going to have a bit more time as Guildford is just a little way from us and it would have been lovely to meet up and grab a coffee.

Your time in London sounds awesome if a little busy....leave LOTS of time for queues at this time of year and then you won't get frustrated....it is going to be STUNNING!

P.S. Maybe you could run an independant "Holiday Blog" which we can all follow and you can then keep and print as a diary afterwards. FYI Costa Coffee's in UK offers free wireless connection :-)

I am busy ruminating on an updated bucket list - it's a lot more difficult than one would think!  The last time I created a bucket...
