Exactly one month from today, I'll be hopping on one of these
And going here
You see, 12 years ago I spent a semester in London doing Study Abroad when I was in college. I absolutely fell in love with the city (whole country, really) and have been yearning to go back ever since. My mom has to be there for business for a few days in the first week of November so we'd thrown about the idea of me possibly going, and in the past week or so we finally decided to do it and I bought my airplane ticket last night! And you can think me a sap if you wish, but I actually got a little bit teary-eyed when I pressed the "Confirm" button on the BA website (and not just because of the price of the ticket--youch).
In 1998 we didn't have digital cameras so all of the pictures I took were on film and they're still sitting mostly un-scrapbooked in a box in my office. I think it might be time to get them out and look at them again--I'm feeling a serious nostalgia trip coming on. I actually pulled out my journal from that time and I can tell you that on October 7, 1998, I was on a ferry going from Wales to Ireland and trying very hard not to toss my cookies from seasickness! I've got a lot to do over the next month to plan our trip and first on my list is finding us a place to stay. It's been a long time since I was there so if any of you have suggestions for me, please let me know! And now, I'm off to the bookstore to buy an updated guidebook!
