If everything goes according to plan, this time next year we will be tucked up in bed on our first night in London.

Our tentative plan is 6 weeks in UK and Ireland with possibly a few days in Spain at the end of the trip.

As you can imagine, we are still in the early stages of planning.  12 months does seem a long time but we have lots of other things going on in our lives so we want to make sure that we are prepared and can catch the best deals on fights, accommodation and trains.  I already know that the cheapest fares on the trains are about 9 – 12 weeks in advance.

As we discovered with our USA trip last year, half of the fun is in the research and planning.  If you have any hints, tips or ‘must do’ activities please share them.

Now it is back to reality – I need to hang the washing out on the line.
