It's official - my husband says he's taking me back to England for our 20th anniversary in October!! I'm so excited since we'll be staying about 10 days. Having spent most of the last trip in London, we're going to rent a car and drive around the countryside, visiting castles, cathedrals, villages etc. The fun will be in deciding where we are going to go - we will have a plan...

That sounds wonderful! I hope to do the same sort of trip as I've been to London several times. Can't wait to hear about your trip!

Oh, I'm so jealous! Love traveling in Britain - and planning is almost as much fun as doing. Congratulations and enjoy!

Counting down days until my first trip out of the country... ever. :D
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!

Hope you have a lovely trip, Tanzanite! Don't forget the northern part of Britain, especially Yorkshire!! We have some terrific scenery and, just in case you don't know, Yorkshire is the largest county in England. We maybe blunt but we're very friendly!

Where are you going, Nefret? I have to say if Britain had the weather, I don't think going abroad would have the same lure. But all the seasons seem to merge into one! :( Just sort of murky!!!!
