Oct 31, 2005 - Sweden to England

It was off to the airport and back to London. We were lucky enough to sit next to a English lady and her kids whom did what they wanted, kicked the chair in front, threw food everywhere and terrorized the whole plane. Stocked about that. Then we were forced back into the way of England as we arrived into Luton airport to find no help at all, asking 3 flight attendants for directions only to get a rude response as they kept walking past....... Yep we are back, unfortunately this is one of the main reasons that we are leaving this country....

Jun 24, 2005 - Warwick Castle & English Countryside

Warwick Castle was good, but it rained the entire time we were there. So all the little tents were closed, and there were no demonstrations (like the jousting). The stairs in the towers were wet, and several times I thought I was going to fall. However, seeing the dungeons was really interesting and kind of scary. They had this one contraption that they basically hung you from the middle of the ceiling by attaching a medal harness to you, and they just let you rot to death. I am glad I got to see it. After that we went to Stratford on Avon...

May 21, 2005 - Cairo to London

Left hotel at 5:00am to get the airport for our flight to London. Arrived Heathrow just after 11:00am. Made our way through customs and there was Amanda in the front row waiting for us. Lots of Hugs and tears. Then she took us back via train and buses to her place in Shepherds Bush. Lots of catching up to do. One of Amanda's flatmates, Myra was also there. Later we went down to the supermarket for Vicki to do some shopping and then make one of her great dinners.

Mar 3, 2005 - London, England

We're finally back in an english speaking country. We didn't think we missed english until we got here. The only problem is that now people can hear the stupid things we say. Anyways, we left Paris this morning. I guess early in the trip we were a little more ambitious, cause we had to get up early. Of course we didn't go to sleep when we wanted, Lindsay was having conversations in her sleep (way too much for me to remember), and of course I woke up an hour and a half earlier than the alarm and couldn't go back to sleep. So, I'm tired. And...

Jan 22, 2005 - 22.01.05 see ya London!!

Cheerio chaps, Technically we are still in London but we are leaving tomorrow. Not to say that I don;t like the place.. nice to visit but I could not live here. There are some really beautiful things here to see, the usual tourist attractions and such but I just find it difficult to enjoy being somewhere that costs so much yet the service you get is totally crapola ( I don't know about you guys but if I'm going to pay the equivalent of 25AUD for a glass of water, some dry pieces of chicken and a teaspoon of rice thet has been spilled onto...

Jan 5, 2005 - Oxford

Well we arrived in Heathrow London and was met by Nicola. We went on a large bus ride to Oxford where we were going to stay until we found a place to live in London. The trip was long and we were tired from all the flights from New Zealand and a severe lack of sleep. When we arrived in Oxford we had our four suitcases that we had to wheel through the streets to get to Nick and Nics place. Oh what fun! Oxford was nice, quaint and old. The streets were narrow and there were lots of people on bikes everywhere. And to top it all off it was just...

Jul 31, 2004 - Chesham & the Court-Nothnagle family

Went to Chesham where Steve's family lives and where Steve and Darcy and Sophia were staying before their move to Bath. They are living in the Royal Crescent which is really the coolest old building in Bath, all historical and stuff. It's on postcards and everything. Lydia and I didn't book ahead into a room since we have always been able to find a B&B and we were getting there very early. But apparently Chesham is not the kind of town that people stay in and there are really no official B&Bs. But after a couple of hours searching with the...
