And we're off!

Here we go - a massive tour of the UK and Ireland as a special treat for total Anglophile Maddy's spring break. In about nine days, we are seeing: Cardiff ("Doctor Who" Experience), Dublin, Belfast (Easter mass in Gaelic? Yes, please!), Glasgow, Edinburgh (cafes where Rowling wrote), London, Oxford (Harry Potter tour and the pub where Lewis and Tolkien wrote), and Brighton.
I'll take exhaustion with a side of fabulous, please!
I'm not sure what my Internet situation will be throughout these journeys...I have the feeling Facebook is going to be overwhelmed with Instagram photos, but you all may have to wait a little bit. We shall see.
For now, though - pip pip, cheerio!


  1. Who is Tolkein? Not familiar...
    Have a fabulous time!

    Love you!

  2. Your mother is such a comic! I note she doesn't ask about Rowling.
    Have a wonderful trip.
    love- granna

  3. No, she was just being mean about the fact that I misspelled Tolkien. Sorry, universe! Bus blogging is hard...

  4. Be sure to take in the "Giant's Causeway" near Belfast!
    Have a great trip!
