With excitement, that is!
Now that the horse series is done, I'm off again to Hannover, Germany, but this time via London, where Donica has been all week. I leave this evening and arrive Friday/tomorrow morning with the day before me while Donica is in business meetings. My plan is to walk around and see, among other things, St. Paul's Cathedral (which we missed in 2002).
On Saturday (this is where I'm REALLY fit to be tied), we have an all-day excursion booked to see the following 3 sights:
WINDSOR CASTLE: We missed it when we were in London in April of 2002 because of the Queen Mum's funeral. The castle was closed to all visitors, of course. It's the largest and oldest occupied castle in the world.
STONEHENGE: These 40-ton rocks were dragged to the lonely, windy plain of Salisbury Hill 5,000 years ago. Because astrology is one of my "hobbies," I am dying to see this magical place.
ROMAN BATHS: After lunch in a traditional English Pub, we head off to Bath to see the honey-colored Georgian terraces standing on the slopes of the River Avon. Then, on to Bath Abbey, where the first British King was crowned in 973 AD, the Pulteney Bridge, and the Roman baths.
OMG. I can hardly stand it. And guess what! It's all on my normal frequent-flyer miles to Hannover with no extra cost for the weekend layover in London (except for what we spend there!). How's that for excitement!
We'll fly to Hannover Sunday late afternoon and will be there till March 9th.
