The past few Christmases have been spent here in Chile. I don’t feel like I’ve been slighted – we’ve still seen my family plenty and been to the US at least once a year, and it’s just worked out that it’s made sense to stay put for December – but there’s still nothing like going home for the holidays. Which is why I’m very excited to share that it’s official:
We’re spending Christmas 2011 in England!
There was never any question in my mind of this happening, but it’s still nice to finally have plane tickets confirmed. I should probably get around to discussing this with my boss soon too…
Last time we went to England at Christmas, we spent a great couple of days in London and made a stop at Windsor Castle as well. We also spent plenty of time hanging out at my dad’s house in Cheshire, but we didn’t do much exploring beyond that. Rodolfo was working on his thesis, which made finding free time for side-trips tough.
This time, however, we’ll be spending more time in London and heading to some other English cities. York? Liverpool? I seeee youuuu. Plus now that we’ve got our tickets to and from England set, we can start planning a little side-trip to somewhere else in Europe. I foresee some more racing around trying to fit everything in, but I’m determined to avoid the stress and focus on the excitement. England for the first time in three years!
I think it’s time to start wishing for a white Christmas.
