I am taking my netbook, I will be buying some internet time while at AKL, but don't think I will do loads of updates. WIll mainly be checking fairfx accoutn and work e-mails etc. I'm sure I'll find some DIS time though.

Haha, my spare bed was covered in holiday stuff until I cleared it to help pack (and use it for photo purposes) today! Very nice to have it back, I think that's why Bella was so eager to help me pack! It's HER bed after all.
aw bless! poor thing

I think we will be taking ours to help free room for more pictures instead of taking LOADS of sd cards

CANT WAIT :D

Yeah, that too!! Our little flip video thing can only free up space by the videos being downloaded, so we'll be doing that each day too.

Oooh, this jsut reminded me! I'm going to go put the LAN cable in my case now!

Hey Torsie! Looks like I found you. Congrats on you and Jack's engagement that is so exciting! I think a Disney wedding most definately suites you guys! How cute!

I have been trying to talk DH into going to the UK...I am hoping we can do this next year..we will see..the big debate is whether or not to bring the kids! Any suggestions? They will be 3 and 5 and people have been giving me a hard time for wanting to take them to England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales (I would have to sneak Paris in there too but don't tell my husband!)

I look forward to hearing more of your plans and who knows maybe we will run into eachother!

Torsie,

After your packing update with photos I'm an even bigger fan of yours! Your luggage is so cute, and I feel a bit sad looking at your mousekeeping envelopes that I didn't get a chance to make any! I didn't bother to take pics of my packing (we're leaving Tuesday for a few weeks in Vegas before we move on to Disney) because my stuff is no where near as lovely as yours lol - but I do feel a lot more encouraged to pack knowing that others are getting down to business too!

-Leit (Jessi)

Oh, and the peek inside your DS case was awesome! I love knowing what fellow gamers are playing!

Lol, I might not be the best person to ask about visiting th UK, as I spend most of my days plotting how to get more time away from it!!!

My only suggestions really would to be come July-Sept, as they tend to be the best chance of good weather (no promises though!), London is a lot nicer in summer than other months. Although last weekend Oxford St (Main shopping area) was so busy I couldn't believe it! You could totally make it a fun trip for kids, there are fun museums and Hamleys is a huuuuge toy shop (seems much bigger to the FAO Schwartz in NYC to me).

I went to University in Wales (Aberystwyth) and it really does have stunning countryside, so you could maybe stay on a farm there? (Don't go to visit the cities (Swansea.Cardiff) as they aren't touristy really. Aberdovey is hours from anywhere, but is a beautiful town. With a great beach.

Scotland I'd say do Edinburgh and then Loch Ness, avoid Glasgow!

You'll notice I don't mention Northern England, as a southerner I'm not a big fan . Also I've never been to Ireland, but Dublin looks great, and I know my parents love Belfast.

Whatever you do don't miss Paris though! Beautiful city, wonderful people and Disneyland is like 30 minutes away!! If you book early enough you can get returns on the Eurostar from Central London for around £50.

Thanks Jessi, you're so sweet. A few weeks in Vegas?!? You're so lucky!! I looooove Vegas!

Glad you liked my DS games.

Yes! I'm really looking forward to this one as well. I want to finish Prof. Layton & The Diabolical Box before I purchase it though.

Good to hear!! It doesn't come out in the UK until October 9th, so I'll get it in FL. Does anywhere in DTD sell video games? Should keep me well occupied on the flight home!
