Let's talk about: Travel News


That's right!
Scones and Crackers is going to London!

For years I have dreamt of going to Europe, especially England. 
It has been my #1 travel dream since marking Prince Edward Island, Canada off of my bucket list. 
My husband Doug and I have talked about it many times. How to afford it? When to go?

Then last summer he said, "We can't go for a while with the kids but you should see if your mom wants to go with you."
My mom is one of my favorite travel buddies. She lets me plan pretty much everything (I admit I am a control freak.), she puts up with (and enjoys, I think) my commando type traveling, and we like so many of the same things that it makes it easy to figure out which are the most important things to see. 

So I called her up. 
We talked about it and have been planning ever since. 
Finally over the last couple of months we have put our plan into full speed ahead. 
And we are going!

Our trip is still about a year away but I have most of our hotels booked and am holding out hope for a good airline deal. 
We will be visiting England, Wales,  France, Switzerland, and Germany for three weeks.
But on this blog I will only post about England and Wales where we will be spending the most time.

I wanted to bring up my trip so that I can post occasionally about the places we have found to stay in, things we plan on seeing, and of course a full report on everything when we get back.
But I also want to post on places I find that we won't be staying in and things we might not do... just in case any of you are planning a trip and could do those things. 

I hope you will all enjoy the travel posts as much as I will enjoy writing them!
