Best Example of how we're not as young as we think...drum roll please...

That's it for me till next trip!

Thanks for sharing Katrina. I lived vicariously through you and Faye. You two definitely had a great trip. One suggestion to your "best of list"....what about your accidental extra long walk in London along the canal? Lol

Yes, Valerie, that certainly crossed my mind...but couldn't figure out a title. "Best Forced March"? "Best Blisterfest"? Nothing really encapsulates the day!
