London Calling...

Well, I'm off on a quick trip to England and Paris.  Here I thought I'd have a couple of days to unwind, do a little reading, blogging, commenting, etc.  Boy was I wrong!  School ended on Friday with graduation, which went off really well.  That next day I had a good friend come into town and we went to see Les Miserables, which is touring the country right now.  (The play and the company both were great!)  Sunday I collapsed in a heap of post-school year fatigue, and the first two days of the week were spent at a school meeting that kept me busy all day long.  This transition from the end of school to this trip has been a pretty busy, eventful one.  Maybe that will make sleeping on the plane a possibility so the jet lag isn't quite so crazy?  I sure hope so!

Thanks to everyone who has given me great advice on everything from what to take or what to see.  Now I can hop a flight and be on my way.  Oh, and thanks to my new toy (iPad), I didn't have to pack half a suitcase of books!  It felt really odd and I almost snuck a stack in anyway, but just knowing I have hundreds to choose from on my iPad is pretty great.  Maybe that means I can buy more once I get to London??? 

When I get back, things will be busy throughout much of the summer, so I'm going to really try to kick back and completely enjoy every moment.  Yes, I'll be taking a lot of pictures of places and things that I can share in some of my lessons at school, but that's always kind of fun.  My students tease me a bit about some of the pictures that I'm included in from my trip to Greece, so I have to keep the teacher-included pictures to a minimum on this trip! 

Thanks again, and I'll see you on the other side.  (We'll see if I can get a post or two written before I leave, but it seems a little unlikely at this point!)


  1. Woohoo! I'm sure you'll have great time. :)

    Just as a side note, when I went to Italy on a class trip, one of the other students took a Benedryl just before we left the US and was passed out for the entire flight! I was so jealous. I'm going to try either that or Nyquil the next time I fly overseas.

  2. Safe travels! I can't wait to hear about your trip!

  3. Hope you have a safe and very happy trip. I'm green with envy - or is that mold?
