Judy, that’s great to hear it was helpful for you! I moved our trip calendar from my office out to our dining room table yesterday, as we were working through some London steps together. It is so helpful to have the whole picture of the trip on one large paper.
Dan received a notice from Delta yesterday that his flight back from London is leaving early afternoon instead of early morning, so that’s saving us an extra hotel cost that final night. I leave the next day through Gatwick, so we were keeping our in-city hotel that last night, so we didn’t need to mess with our suitcases that last full day, and my connections are handy from there. So, yeah! He said, “Let’s have a special dinner now that evening.” That’s a much better way to spend our time and the money!
I also switched our second Cotswolds’ lodging to a barn close to Chipping Campden. (The first one is one of the earliest inns in England with lots of interesting detail work.) I’ve never slept in a barn, albeit a charming remodeled barn - LOL! Oh wait, I did sleep in a barn! It was a Dutch home’s half home/half barn, and the son/daughter-in-law lived in what was originally the barn side of the structure.
Time to gather my daypack and packing cubes. Pam, mine are all weighed, too. The earliest mesh bags with the gather strings are even a little lighter than the slightly stiffer second set we received from a second trip.
