I hope that you have an absolutely amazing time friend! Enjoy it fully! Take loads of photos!

Funny story: When my hubby went to England, I said to forgoe the souviners (as you know the pound is EXPENSIVE) and just take lots of photos. I had dreams of framing them and such. Well, he came back with 20 photos. Three of a dog who lived at the house he was staying at, a few of the room he slept in and the rest of this rock wall. We ended up having to see all the sites he saw on internet websites. I was so mad. :) But this is the best part. My hubby is NONobservant. Completely nonobservant. So one day when we had the camera, his group went into this town. His friend said, "go down this road and there is a large castle". So Shane went down the road to see it. Well, he finds this building with a drawbridge and a cemetary out front so he took a few photos. Went back to the group and his friend was like "did you see the castle?" Shane said "yeah, the building with the cemetary in front" And the guy says "No. That was a church. The castle was on teh opposite side of the road." They drove down to see the castle and literally, if Shane had just turned his head to the left, he would have seen this giant CASTLE. What a dork. Here's to hoping you don't have any experiences like that. :)

Have fun!!!!!!! Hurry back and be safe!

You sound as obsessive as me! Actually, you just sound thorough. Mine would be more like "try to pack less. Get stressed about stuff not fitting. Re-pack. Re-stress. Make new list. Re stress. etc"

Hope you're having a great time!
