I did it.
I've talked about doing this for years but I finally did it.
I booked a round-trip flight to London for myself and my two lovely daughters for three weeks in June. I'm still a little shocked that I actually did it.
We have family that lives outside London so we will be spoiled by them picking us up at the airport and providing a place for us to stay while we're in the London area. Of course we can't just fly to London to spend three weeks there so we've got to go exploring. The question is, where else should we go? I'm planning on making Paris a part of our itinerary but after that it's a big question mark. Should we head south to Spain or north to the Netherlands?
How far north do we want to go in England? All the way up to Scotland? To the lakes district to visit Beatrix Potter's Hill Top Farm? Questions, questions... Then there's the biggie: Can we fit everything we want to take in carry-on sized suitcases? I've always been a big believer in packing light, even before they started charging for checking your luggage.
We leave in 11 weeks and in that time we will be finishing school for the year, hosting Emily's graduation party, going up to the cabin for Memorial Day weekend and getting ready to go. I'd say that's enough to keep us busy this spring!
