- Earn the money
- Plan the trip, ie. hotels, food, sightseeing, geneology
- Contact my family there
- Get out of debt so I can rack more up overseas!
- Lose some weight so I am more comfortable on the trip.
I have always wanted to make this trip and the year that I am 40 is going to be perfect for it. My kids will be grown, I have plenty of time to get excited, I can include lots of other goals and use the trip as my reward. I plan on some regular touristy stuff but I want to see all the places my family came from so it would probably be boring for most people. Everyone is wanting to come with me and all I can say is "Good Luck". I won't include anyone on my trip because I am selfish but if you happen to earn the money on your own and go the same days as me it will be great to get to occasionally see a fellow yankee. My mother was horrified when she heard I was going planning to go alone. My husband laughed his head off when she declared that I couldn't possibly be happy wandering the UK alone. He knows me so well.
Let me know if you have taken a trip to the UK and have someplace you really want me to see. This includes shopping eating drinking museums castles. Extra points if you have a place in Wales for me to see and can tell me in Welsh. Yep I know Welsh. Had to, to translate the geneology.
