Rough Itinerary!

Only 10 more days 'til I'm hitting the road - er, airplane!  We also have our rough itinerary!  Since I am anti-creeper, I won't say when we're going to be in each place, but here's a list of some of the things we'll be doing and seeing:
  • Bath
  • Cambridge, Bury St. Edmunds
  • Canterbury Cathedral
  • Chalfont St. Giles (Milton's cottage)
  • Dickens' London Tour
  • Dover Castle
  • Greenwich
  • Globe Theater tour (and seeing Julius Caesar while we're there)
  • Hampton Court Palace
  • Lakes District tour
  • Oxford and Christchurch College (where John Locke was a professor!)
  • Salisbury Cathedral
  • Stonehenge
  • Stratford-on-Avon (and Henry IV part I matinee while we're there)
  • Thames River Cruise
  • Tower of London
  • Westminster Abbey
  • Windsor Castle
We'll have a jam-packed trip and that's not even all of what we will see and do!  I'm so excited!  I'm already packing my bags! 

Also, for those who may be interested, I found a PBS documentary on Netflix called "Secrets of the Tower of London". It was pretty interesting.  For instance, did you know they keep 8 ravens on the grounds at all times (with a full-time Raven Keeper). This is because of a superstition that if the ravens ever leave the Tower, it will crumble to the ground and Britain will fall.  So weird - and pretty cool!
