Preparing for Spring Break ’07

Less than 72 hours to go before we launch again. Where? England – with the whole family!

While England isn’t most people’s idea of a desirable Spring Break location, there’s no where else I’d rather go: the cool weather & overcast skies (i.e. no heat/sun-induced migraines), the train travel (i.e. no stress-induced migraines), the historical treasures (i.e. photographic & literary subjects)… I’m hoping to infect the kids with my Anglophilia and yet still manage to give Kurt the vacation he desperately needs.

We’ve been preparing since September 2006: tickets and reservations, passports for the kids, new rolling luggage, books (including a guide to British wildlife – sorely needed last trip), camera repairs, waterproof moccasins, sturdy travel umbrellas, and lots of English food (the kids needed to practice/be desensitized).
I’ve looked up the location of the internet cafes near our hotels, so I will try to post at least every other day. Once we reach Reading, I may even be able to post pictures. No promises, though. If there’s anything I’ve learned in traveling with our kiddos, it’s BE FLEXIBLE;-)
