  1. Hi Kids!
    Wow what a fantastic adventure! I went to England at your age for six months and I remember it to this day (well……….some of it!)
    England is the most wonderful enigma. Totally old yet totally hi tech.
    Where else would you find a six hundred year old stone wall and in the middle of it an ATM machine!
    Have fun and look forward to hearing about your trip.
    P.S. Go to the Tower of London and see the Crown Jewels and the Nasty Museum of torture! You get to see “a diamond so big it will make you puke” (Steve Martin from the movie “The Jerk”) and a museum display that truly WILL make you puke!

  2. I wish to travel alone to London with all its attraction, Glasgow, Manchaster, Scotland , Wales and Plymouthwith a fixed plan of 8-9 days in train. Is it possible to travel this way?
