We're leaving tomorrow for London for 5 nights! This will be the first real vacation we've had since our honeymoon in April of 2004. Even though we've done a bunch of traveling since then, and it's been great and we've loved having those opportunities, there've always been agendas that went along with those trips. Most of them had to do with prepping to come here, so there's been a large element of work to those trips.
A relative of James' was incredibly generous in giving us the hotel stay he had booked for himself after finding out he couldn't use it or get a refund. We'll also get to see James' aunt who lives in London.
James recommended we not take our computer. OMG! I'm not sure how we're going to do it, there might be some slight withdrawal, but it probably is a good idea. I think it will help us totally disconnect from regular life and just relax.
