Greetings from England!!!

Hello there! Thank you everyone who has been praying for me and this holiday. It was a long trip to get here, but it's totally worth it!! It's so green and beautiful here. Everything is just dripping with lively vegitation. Ivy, plants, flowers, shrubs of all kinds and trees of all kinds too!

The driving is INSANE!!!! Seriously, the car my friends have has about 3 inches of front end in front of the teeny tiny wheels. So you end up being really close to the vehicle in front of you when you stop. I mean, so close I could kick the bumper of the next car! And the streets are so narrow and you have to share the road with the oncoming traffic in some spots.

I've been to Stonehenge now. It was very interesting...we were just driving along the road and then you look over and its right there! It's sort of unassuming actually. I took 152 pictures, so yes, I will have Wordless Wednesday covered for a while :)

Yesterday, we also went to 'Bath' which is famous for the Roman Baths. Very cool, I took about 117 photos there.

We are currently sitting in the living room making our plans to go to Italy on Thursday. There are so many things to see in Florence!! More about that later...

I'm having a great time, I still can't believe I'm here. Thank you everyone who is visiting my blog in anticipation of an update. To all those important few, I mailed off postcards today ;-)

I'm sorry for not sending any photos yet, this obviously isn't my computer, so I can't load any pictures to it. I have already used over 1 GB disc and bought 2 more 2 GB discs.

I'm having a great time on my European adventure...keep praying for me and I'll come back soon for another update, so check back in a few days!!!

Sounds like your trip is off to great start! I can't wait to see your pictures...one day I will get to go all those places, too. Stay safe and continue to an fantabulous time, Becca!

Wonderful to know that you're enjoying your holiday, Becca!

I took tonnes of pics too. Sydney and Hunter Valley are beautiful! Lovely weather there. I brought along my laptop so I managed to download hundreds of photos into my lappie and 'recycle' my 1 GB MC.

Enjoy!! Love to hear more about your holiday.
