HERE COMES FATE.......
A few of my coworkers invited me to travel with them to LONDON for a long weekend of sight-seeing and also to watch the fabulous Broadway show WICKED (the untold story of the Witches of Oz).
LONDON? Really?? Truth be told, England has NEVER been on my 'list' of must-sees. The rate of the pound compared to the dollar is RIDICULOUS, and images like this:

....have left me wanting to travel elsewhere. But then something as GRAND and WONDERFUL as this comes along and completely changes my mind:
AWESOME - I'm going to London!! So here is the TRICKY part of the trip:
1. I haven't traveled with any of these people before (there are 7 of us going - all different ages). Everyone has thier own travel style, so there is a huge potential for frustration here. I think the best solution is to go off on my own and do my own thing without coming off as rude. Ultra tricky!
2. I have to share a hotel room with a nurse and her daughter. Have you seen European beds? What if all 3 of us are stuck in a tiny room, or worse - 1 large bed?!? Ahhhgh!
3. I'm flying on a small airline, so luggage is an ISSUE. I'm limited to a SMALL carry- on bag which has to include my purse. I have no idea how to pack for this.
4. It is CRAZY expensive in London. My wallet will be crying. Military wages hardly justify the amount of traveling I've been doing. Oh well....there will always be more money, right?
The GOOD news is I can get along with just about anyone, and who knows .....maybe I'll finally see Prince Harry. Or maybe I'll have the opportunity to meet a royal. OMG - could you imagine? The visualization trick worked for the accordion, so I think I'll try the same trick with meeting ROYALS. Hey - it couldn't hurt, right?
Have you been to been or London or do you live there? Have you seen WICKED? I need help on where to go and what to see. Sure...I could research it like everyone else, but I'd rather get the inside scoop from you!
