Update on our trip

Ok so here we go. Tommy and I (mostly me) have been doing a lot of reading and planning for our awesome trip coming up next March. We are so excited!!

I have to tell you our somewhat tentative plans to explore the UK in only 10 days.

1. We will get to Dublin at 8am on the 11th of March. We decided to rent a car since public transportation there maybe difficult for our tight schedule. Since it only takes about two hours to drive from one side of the island to the other, we thought we would explore as much of it as possible.

The Blarney Castle is definitely on the list of places to go. I am determined to kiss the germiest place on the planet (Don't worry, I will sanitaze sufficiently afterward).

2. Scotland is second on the list. We plan on taking a ferry from Northern Ireland to Scotland and then visiting a few places there including some awesome castles and some old plagued cities I've heard about. We're still working on this one since I don't know anyone who has been there recently. However, if we have the time, Tommy thinks a nice trip up to Lochness to see Nessy may be nice.

3. On our way down to England, we plan on stopping in Manchester. There are a few estates used in Jane Austen movies that I've really wanted to see. Lyme park specifically. It's beautiful.

4. Obviously we can't go to England without seeing Stonehenge. Since it was, in fact, built by aliens.

5. Also inspired by Jane Austen, we plan on going to Bath. I've heard that it is a marvelous place with beautiful buildings. I can't wait to see it myself.

6. And last, but not least, we are going to spend the last couple days in London. My friend at work, who is from England, has told me some wonderful places to go and things to do while we are there. One, of course, is Buckingham Palace. Maybe the queen will have time for tea and crumpets after all.

The Loch Ness monster is real, she's nice and not really a monster. This is going to be the best trip ever!
