So, I am not going to post much now, but, we had an AWESOME trip. We both loved London, and this is saying a lot since neither one of us are really big city kinda people. I took over 300 pics (shocker there), so I will post when I have time to edit them and cut out the ones that are not good........I will also do a trip report, but I will do a quick breakdown here, for fun.

Pros of Trip:
Leeds Castle (my soon to be second home, haha)
Easy city transportation
Food, with the exception of one place
English accents and phrases, i.e. "Mind the Gap" (which was a fav of Kurt's)
the city of Bath
All the tours we did

Cons of Trip:
How long the flights were and my neck pain after such flights
Me getting a HORRENDOUS cold 3 days into the trip
Exchange rate of money (their money is worth a LOT more than ours)
Getting up early for tours
The Mexican place we ate at our last night--service was HORRENDOUS
People who took screaming babies on tours
Rude, pushy tourists

Anyway, I am sure there is much more than the above, but that's just a glimpse into it. Sneak peak into my nonexistent trip report, which will be forthcoming.

The pugs were super psyched to see us when we got here, and although we stopped briefly into the office to look thru mail and the like, we spent most of the afternoon at home resting. Which I needed. In our brief stop at the office, I needed to not be there, as I had a headache from the flight and was kinda out of it.

This is the first time I've heard of food from England listed as a pro. I've typically heard complaints of English food. Interesting.

And bring a baby on a tour?! Who the heck would do that and WHY? I would definately hold off on any tours until the kids were old enough to enjoy them. Agh.
