London calling...

I've never been to Europe and to be honest I never really had any desire to go. A recent discussion with my husband reference his impending 40th birthday in January elicited a conversation as to what he wants to do to celebrate. We originally discussed going to Banff in Canada but we don't ski and spending two weeks watching the snow fall, albeit pretty, could get boring. We also don't want to tackle the states again right now considering the experience we had on our recent last trip. Neither of us are interested in visiting Asia or Africa. James wants to go to South America but I don't. So we were basically stuck with Europe.

We have pretty well decided to go to the UK for two weeks at the end of the year. It looks like we will be leaving on the 29th December and will be in London for New Years and then will spend the next few days there until James birthday on the 2nd. We are having the travel agent look into the flights and accommodations. The trip looks to include Scotland and Wales and possibly a stop over in Bangkok or Hong Kong depending what airline we take as we won't be flying United again after the last disaster we experienced with them.

Anyway, this is all in the preliminary stages of planning but I needed something to write about and this is it. I'll keep you posted as the plans become more solid.
