What with the garden and the animals, it’s been awhile since I posted about my travel plans…but I sure have been thinking about them! I can’t believe it’s next year that I’m going; it won’t be long until I’ll actually be able to start buying tickets and reserving hotels.
If you remember, I was planning on going to England and Scotland in June of 2015. That has changed. There are three places in the world that call to me more than anywhere else: England, Egypt, and Venice. Because of current events, Egypt is pretty much off the table at the moment. And for some reason, I thought Venice would be too difficult to combine with a trip to England, thus the addition of Scotland.
Then a friend made me jealous with *her* trip to Venice, and I looked into it. Turns out Venice is only a two hour flight from London…and the flights are super cheap. I could pay more for a train trip in England! So: New Plan.
After the England portion of my trip, I will fly to Venice, and spend a couple of nights there, before flying home.
Also, since I won’t be in Scotland this trip, I am changing the timing back to going in September of 2015. September works out so much better for me, schedule-wise.
And after I decided on September, I discovered the Benedict Cumberbatch will be playing Hamlet at a London Theatre….in September. So how perfect is that? Tickets will go on sale in a couple of months, and I’m definitely going to try for one. It’ll be a little tricky, since I don’t have my exact travel dates nailed down, but I guess I’ll just have to plan the rest of the trip around that single theatre ticket if I get it!
