I just got off the phone with my fabulous friend, Michelle. After spending a grueling half hour on the phone with “Orlando” from Delta, she successfully BOOKED OUR TICKETS TO THE UK IN SEPTEMBER!
You all have no idea.Â Behind love, children and a house this is the dream of my life.Â And it is happening.
We will be gone from September 10th to September 22nd. Originally, we wanted to fly into Edinburgh by the morning of the 11th go all throughout Scotland over to the Lake District of England, take a train to the South and tool around the area, including a stay on Isle of Wight (Because I have been researching THIS place obsessively for about 10 years now) and fly home from London.
Michelle told me that finding a flight that didn’t have 6 layovers was a challenge. It was a zoo because of high demand (And because my miles took so many months to unravel and earn).
Never doubt Michelle, though. She came up with an even cooler plan than our original. We fly out of Salt Lake on a red eye and get into Newark at 5am. We fly out that night for Edinburgh at 8 pm. SOOOOOO…. We are going to be in New York City for an entire day! Ironically, it will be on September 11th. Weird, huh?
I’m really looking forward to it. There are still so many things I want to see in New York that I haven’t on the previous three trips.
Yay! Yay!! Yay!!!
So…If anyone has NYC, Scotland and England tips, just let me know.
