This last month of May has been a hectic one…
planning, booking, arranging a family trip towards end of June…..
my youngest sister and my mother in Oz have decided on a quick trip to UK.
Everyone is so excited… they both have never been to the UK… so want to see everything!
Which is virtually impossible in just three weeks!
So it has been fun arranging an itinerary and costing the trip… booking accommodation and planning and deciding what to see and do !
First week we will be doing London and giving them both a chance to get over the jetlag – and also my sister is booked in for 3 day/3 night package with the Bon Jovi concerts.
So that’s the main reason for staying put for that first week.
Then we are taking them to Paris for two nights – travelling by train – dinner on the Eiffel Tower and then 2 whole days of Paris touring!
We return on Thursday night and will have two days at home before we take off on a driving tour heading to Bath – staying two nights – visit the Roman Baths and Thermae Spa and a bus tour of Bath – en route to Bath will stop at Stonehenge and then take a small detour to Glastonbury and walk up the Tor – maybe my mother won’t do it – but that’s OK – my sister and I will do it and mum and Keith can entertain themselves in the abbey ruins etc.
After Bath we are driving to Scotland – my sister really wants to get up to Loch Ness.
We are going to stay in Edinburgh for three nights – a day of Edinburgh castle and Royal Mile touring and the Whiskey tour.
Next day travel to Loch Ness – and en route visit the Falkirk Wheel.
Once we leave Edinburgh we will be travelling south towards Newcastle upon Thyne and plan to visit Hadrian’s Wall en route – destination Cambridge.
Overnight in Peterborough – just one hour from Cambridge – which will give us a whole day of sightseeing and punting on the Cam in Cambridge next day.
AND at the end of the day travel back home to Whitstable – where we will have one whole day at home before mum and sis leave for Oz on the Monday.
Are you exhausted ?
