Just got back from the UK :)

And I soooo wish I was still there. It was everything I thought it would be and more. If you are on FB, I have posted tons of pics on there. It would take forever to put them on here. And Orion, Glencoe was simply spiritual. Pictures cannot do it justice. I understand how you loved it so much. It's breathtaking.


London was fabulous. I could never live there, but it was a great city to visit. Paris was pretty, but everyone is so freakin' rude there. Everyone in the UK was super nice and courteous. I had a wonderful conversation with a Welshman who taught at the local university while playing some pool.

And the highlight of the trip was getting to see Diane again. She is a truly remarkable person that not only took so much of her own time helping me plan this trip, something I could never have done on my own, but showed me London and Peterborough her hometown. It was wonderful spending time with her and her lovely family.

Scott, Heather, Lara, Shannon, Stephanie, and Kim

Of course I had to get into a real red phone box :)

It was a wonderful trip and I am so glad we did it :)
