Almost Time!

It's almost time for our highly anticipated trip to England!  We leave tomorrow afternoon for Seattle, where we'll bunk down at the Bellevue Hilton (thanks for sharing your points with us, Pooh!), then we take off on Sunday for our trip.

I'm so excited!  10 days of touring with Pia and Katie (I'm going to make them sign a Peace Accord for the duration of the trip, so they won't be fighting on a daily basis...), starting in Edinburgh and working our way to London.  We are renting a car for a few days, which should be an adventure in and of itself :-)  Luckily, no one expects me to drive.

We have some fun activities already planned, including the Harry Potter Studio Tour, Stratford-on-Avon, a candlelight performance of Handel's Messiah at St Martin's in the Field church, a visit to the Dickens Museum, and lots more.  I'm taking the Barrister's Wig of course, and will be posing in it at various Victorian venues.  We watched a show about the royals and the new baby, so we plan to hang out in the street where we were assured Kate will be shopping for baby items :-)  Also heard that Suri Cruise is going to be in England for Christmas, so there's another stalking possibility.

So off to start packing!  Hopefully we will have internet access so I can blog about my adventures!

Happy Christmas to all!
