    1 week to Europe!!!

    A week from Sunday I will be leaving for Europe with my 2 college age children. We will go to France, Italy, Austria, Czech Republic and Germany. I will be spending 2 nights with a board member in France. Woohoo!!! I am getting excited - the countdown has begun!

    Our oldest Granddaughter just got back from a month in Italy and the euros are not cheap. It dropped while she was there and has dropped more. For $1,000.00 you get $700.00 in euros. Take lots of money, phone calls to the States are very costly. She kept in contact with me by sending messages to me through my facebook account. Didn't cost a thing, she kept her phone on airplane mode. She bought an Italian phone to keep in contact there with the others. She was there for college. We thought our money would go further over there, not true.

    My oldest grandaughter toured last year as a member of the Michigan State Women's Basketball Team. They had a marvelous time and stayed with host families. The only scary time was being served frog legs in one home. She decided to put on her "big girl pants" and dive in.......reported that they were wonderful.

    Have a great time. We went to England and Spain last year. We visited my cousin in England and our son in Spain (he was in the Navy). They were great. We definitely want to go back to England.

    I will be meeting with board member Pinot in France. It is kind of scary when I think about the difference in the dollar and the euro, but we will just make the best of it and save where we can!
    Cannyquilter, my daughter will be going to Ireland in January for a semester of study abroad. She wants me to come during her 2 week spring break and do some traveling. We are thinking about Ireland, Scotland and England so you never know!

    I live in the north of England about 50 miles from the border with Scotland, approx 90 miles from Edinburgh. A friend works with a girl from Canada and when her parents came to visit we took them out for a day into the Northumberland countryside and coast. We went to Alnwick which if you are a fan Harry Potter was filmed in the castle. I also have a caravan on the coast close to Bamburgh Castle, that was featured in the film, Robin Hood Prince of Thieves, so if you decide to come over this way let me know and I can make sure that as well as the obvious touristy place I can take you to some off the beaten track beauty spots. Enjoy your visit.

    I will definitely keep your offer in mind. I probably won't decide about that trip until closer to the end of the year. It may depend on if I have any money left after this trip!!! Thanks!
