Festive Season travel plans

Just thought I'd add a post to update everyone on what we'll be doing and where we'll be this christmas and new years. We decided early on that we'd already done a London christmas last year, and just incase this is our last one here, that for this one we'd be trying to do something a bit different.

So below are our plans for the coming month of December:

Thursday afternoon December 8th
Fly to New York for 8 days in the Big Apple, and 3 days in Boston.

Monday morning December 19th
Arrive back in London from Boston at 6:30am, and straight back to work

Thursday night December 22nd
Depart London on overnight bus to Edinburgh with friends Pete & Sueanne

Friday morning December 23rd
Arrive Edinburgh from London, then depart Edinburgh an hour later on a 6 day tour of Scotland and the highlands, with christmas day/night in a castle!

Wednesday afternoon December 28th
Return to Edinburgh from Scotland tour

Thursday night December 29th
Depart Edinburgh on overnight bus to London

Friday morning 30th December
Arrive back into London
Collect hirecar and depart London at lunchtime to drive out to Newquay, Cornwall - Staying in the seaside town for 2-3 days, including New Years night with Daniel & Sophie and friends.

Monday afternoon 1st January, or Tuesday morning 2nd January
Drive back to London to meet up with brother Mike and Rebecca


The last part of the trip will be hectic to say the least - we will be travelling from Edinburgh, Scotland.. all the way down to London and then westwards to Newquay, Cornwall, England in under 20 hours! But the travelling will be worth it for the fancy dress party we've been promised in the small town on new years night!

But first of all we have New York to look forward to, where we are meeting Carly's parents for the New York part of the trip. We both can't wait for that in just over a weeks time now! So much so I think the packing begins this weekend..

Then once we return to London in the new year, we have visitors again - this time my brother Michael, with his now fiancé Rebecca on their way home after their mammoth European tour.

Note to those back in Australia:
Most of the time we're away we'll be on e-mail & the web, and with the exception of international roaming in the U.S. between the 8th and 18th, we'll be contactable by phone.
