What started as a lighthearted exchange on social media has evolved into a 2 week holiday with 2 friends who I've known for...well...29 years. Next year will be our 30th anniversary from the days we all went through training with the RCMP. What better way to celebrate than by traveling to the UK. Why the UK, you ask? Well, we all are avid Harry Potter and Downton Abbey fans, and Shelley has added that if we're going that far we must experience the Beatles. So London and Liverpool are on the agenda. And what better way to follow up some time in England than with a few days in Ireland.
So let the planning begin. Some of the stuff is a no brainer, like our London hotel has to be near Paddington. And our Dublin accommodations have to be the Harding Hotel. Tickets to Highclere Castle have to be booked as soon as they become available because they don't last long.
It's early days. Lots of time to get that fabulous seat sale, to book that tour of the Harry Potter Studio, find the best Beatles Tour in Liverpool. And hotels...well, we've got bookings in each city. How many times those bookings will be changed before we actually depart...remains to be seen...because, for me, the fun is in the hunt!
Tally Ho, Pip Pip and All That!!
