    Hey! Smiler<!--graemlin::)--> Ian is from Canada (I think he’s one of the “Explorer” id’s here). Are you going on this one too? Come and join the facebook page if so Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    We are getting super excited about our first trip to the UK. We have our fingers crossed for nice weather….Smiler<!--graemlin::)--> Looks like there is still room on the trip so maybe it won’t be a full bus?? Any other Canadians travelling on this trip?

    I do see now that Ian is from Canada. We are about 2 hours north of where he lives. Too cool!!!

    For sure!! We’ll all get to catch up at the pre tour meeting thingy plus I think alot of people are staying at the Royal National before hand so we’ll probably run into each other there earlier!!! Big Grin<!--graemlin::D-->

    awesome – we are arriving very early on the 30th so we will catch up with a few zzz’s (we booked that morning in at the hotel) and then are doing a couple of touristry things that aren’t included on the tour. I presume we will run into each other somewhere! Are you staying at the Royal National?
