For Christmas, I got a thingamajig that allows me to play my iPod through my car stereo, so I've been uploading tons of music and listening to songs from my past . . . specifically high school. It brings back all kinds of memories, reminding me of the English exchange program and the boys I had crushes on, and so many other silly things. I love reliving my trip to England, especially the nights we were in London. Actually, I'm thinking of going back to show my kids where I had such a good time all those years ago.
If I went to England now, I'd want to stay in a London hotel for the entire trip. I would want to see some shows, especially some fractured Shakespeare, and I'd really like to go by Buckingham Palace and Big Ben . . . all the traditional English sights. When we went on the school exchange, we stayed in a little town about an hour away from London. There wasn't nearly enough time for all the sightseeing I wanted to do. I think staying right there in a London hotel would make a huge difference.
Maybe when we get our tax refund, we can start planning a trip. I was going to book a cruise for next summer, but maybe we should do something more cultured!
