I just realised today that I’ve not mentioned a thing about my up-coming trip overseas… Tomorrow Christie and I leave… our trip takes us to London (Via Paris – just a stopover and plane change, not a visit). From London we’re either going to catch a lift with the in-laws or take the tube and a train to Southend-on-Sea, where Christie’s grandmotner lives.
She’s not doing so well, which is what caused our trip (which was planned for early next year) to be moved to December. So while its not a happy reason for taking a trip, we’re going to make the most of the stay and try get into London for a day or so to see some touristy sites.
We leave for London tomorrow (21st), arrive there on the 22nd, and leave London again on the 27th. Again our flight goes via Paris but this time (unlike on the way to London) we are stopping in Paris and being picked up by my mother (who lives in Brussels), and we’re going to go stay with her for about 7 days visiting various touristy sites around there. (Brussels, Brugges, Amsterdam, etc)
We leave from Paris again on the 4th of January and arrive in Johannesburg on the 5th. So , I hope you have a very Merry Christmas, and a wonderful new year! I’ll be contactable via e-mail over that time but considering the amount of touristy things we’ll be doing, I doubt I’ll respond too quickly.
Here are some links to the various place’s we’re going…
I hope the links are useful… They have info on great places to see, things to do, where to buy stuff, how to travel, where to stay, etc… and if you find anything special out yourself, you can just add it to the page. (That’s the joy of Wiki’s) I’ll post an update (with pics) when we get back..
