Off to England!!!

Well, it has been a long time coming, but it's finally here! Tomorrow morning, I'm off to England and Italy on my big vacation! Tonight I had dinner with my mom, brother and his girlfriend Amy to sorta say good bye for now (hopefully not forever!). I still have a ton of things to finish before I can go to bed tonight, including deciding my outfits and packing the last 3/4 of everything!!

If all goes as planned, my plane is scheduled to leave St. Louis @12:05 pm Sat. Sept. 15th. I'll have a 2 1/2 hr flight to Newark, New Jersey followed by a 5 1/2 hr layover. Next, a 7 hr transatlantic flight to Bristol, England!

There will be lots to do and see including Stonehenge, Bath, London, various castles and such. Then on Thursday, the 3 of us are off to Pisa, Italy where we will enjoy a 1 hr train ride through the Tuscan countryside to Florence. We rented an apartment and will stay for a long weekend (6 days actually)! Tuesday we will leave Italy :( and return to England. Friday night will bring a medieval feast in North Wales at Ruthin Castle, along with an overnight stay there. Remember, I also found Ruthin Castle or 'The Red Fort' on a haunted hotel website! Eeeek!! After that, time to pack up and come home!

That was the short of it...I'm sure there will be many more details to share once I have returned. I will try to post at least once while I'm gone, but I'm unsure of how much access I'll have to a computer. Until then, miss me whilst I'm gone!!!
