All right already. So I suck at updating!

Doesn't help that there's nothing to update.  I just get up, go to work, go home from work, go to bed, get up, go to work, go home from work, go to bed, get up, you get the picture.  I am genuinely sick of the sight of this place.  Work, that is.  Home is okay.  My kitty is at home, so home is nice.  Work sucks.

BUT!
I'm starting to plan my holiday to the UK!!  I will shortly have $10,000 in my savings.  I want to get $14,000 to be able to jet off to the UK for 4-5 weeks next year.  I should be able to save that much, no problem.

I'm thinking about going in May. Would UK peeps say May is a good month to travel the Isles??? I'd love to see a northern hemisphere winter but that would mean waiting longer, or going sooner (and I can't afford that).  So April or May 2013 is my shortlist.

I'm going to fly, drive and train.  I do NOT to buses and I do NOT do tours.  I'm all about the hire car, baybee.  I'm fairly against trains as a rule and any other kind of public transport but I will swallow my pride and my motion sickness tablets in order to 1) save some moola, and 2) see things I wouldn't normally have seen, and 3) save my poor tootsies from walking too far.

I'm going to visit wadjet_theperv for some fun and frivolity and a trip to Paris.  I can't go all the way over there and not see Paris. The thought of a whole whole other country that speaks a different language and where everything is alien is terrifying, but I can be brave.  The thought of going to the UK isn't so terrifying because at least I know people there, all  my LJ friends and apparently I have a zillion relatives who I've never met or spoken to, and everything will be mostly familiar.  

So I'm open to suggestions for key travel destinations that should not be missed and/or sooper sekrit local-only-knows sights :-) 

Anyway, its Friday and its 4:15 and I'm tired of being at work and I think I'm going to go home in a minute.

May and June are good over here. If I were you I'd stick with the car because the trains and buses are really expensive.

Agreed. Fuel is horribly expensive as well, but I still think it's worth driving. The only exception to that I'd say, is London. Driving really isn't worth it there!
