An Unexpected Vacation

July 2, 2010

We have not been planning to take a vacation trip this year. Some long camping weekends, yes, and maybe some ‘staycation’ time, but nothing major. We’ve been saving up to completely overhaul the kitchen instead.

Well, we got an opportunity we couldn’t refuse. Jeff is spending a week in the U.K. for work later this month, and his company will still pay for his flight if he comes home a week later. It’s not likely that we’ll get another chance like this so we’re going to delay the kitchen project and I will be joining him for a week when his work is done.

We’ve both wanted to visit England for a very long time and are super pumped about this trip! However, since everything is so last minute (at least for a trip of this magnitude) we’re scrambling to figure out what we want to see and do.

Anyone have tips/advice for us? What are your must see/must do things? What are the good, but not outrageously expensive places to eat? What’s overrated and too touristy? We’ll probably end up using London as our base, but we haven’t ruled out staying outside the city some as well.
