To what seems like half this Board (plus a good friend who's not on the DisBoard but is also winging off next Thursday to DL and NY for a week in each) have a fantabulous time with no dramas, no illnesses, no mislaid luggage or undelivered parcels, happy happy kids/hubbies/partners/others and lots of pixie magic . Those of us left behind will be enjoying the "virtual" ride with you

Thanks so much

Whatever happens, happens
I'm looking forward to spending time with my family and making new memories and adventures.

One of the ladies I work with said to me "treat this holiday like it's your last one, you never know whats around the corner"



So true

I am looking forward to sharing my virtual ride with you all

Is it bad to think of my next trip?
I'm already thinking Northern Ireland/Scotland, never been there, and what an adventure it would be

i always double check the following:

- virtual or printed copies of all confirmations
- all passports and print outs of ESTA confirmations in my handbag/carry on etc
- all regular medicines packed
- reading glasses packed
- bank notified as to where/when i'm going
- turn off modem/wifi so it can't be used/hacked while i'm gone
- give emergency numbers to family/friends and copy of itinerary
- extra cash/credit in case i need to buy something i have forgotten
- adaptors
- extra batteries/SD cards for camera
- all electronic gear fully charged.

anything else i lose/forget i figure i can buy while over there..

Just got DS some polaroid sunglasses, bargain price of $15.20

Washing, doing

Have copies of everything (except passports at this stage, i'll do that tomorrow)

Bank notified

New pair of shorts for the empty suitcase

I can't wait to shop


Just trying to decide which MNSSHP to attend, Tues 25th Sep, Fri 28th Sep, or Sun 30th Sep ?

DH just said "I don't care, you just tell me the daily itinerary and i'll turn up"

They have it easy

You've spent all this money and all this time planning. And you'll be there. Just remember....you CAN attend more than one MNSSHP if your family likes it. Afterall, when are you likely to go back again?
(Even if it is the next year, it'll still be cheaper to do it now!)

Not bad at all!! LOve Scotland - and definitely want to go back there. Ireland is on my to-do list. I'll be very interesed to hear your plans

I'm already thinking of next year - DS will be going on a History trip to Europe with school so I'm thinking ahead to the first holiday in 26 years that Dh and I will have had without any kids Thinking Hawaii or Fiji at this stage.
