2 Weeks To Go…

Oh wow its getting closer to my adventure to the other side of the Pond…

Tomorrow I am visiting Di who is my travel agent at Travel Escapes to collect all our paperwork… Then I think it will be even more REAL…

I still need to vote and to exchange currency and to load a Money Travel Card from the Commonwealth Bank with funds…

Then a final going over of my luggage and a list compiled of stuff I am taking…

Oh and a final clean of my camera gear after the weekend…

The next 2 weeks is going to fly by so quickly…

So how much is this holiday costing you ask…

Airfares – $4000

Hotels  – $2000

Tours   – $2000

Total   – $8000 (covers 2 of us )

Plus spending money

Liverpool Hotel…

With the Liverpool leg of our trip I actually had some help from Matthew Hart who is a photography friend living in Liverpool… Who I am meeting up with to do some photography, I love his images and he inspires me…

I was able to give him a list of hotels and he let me know which would suit our needs best… Thanks Matt…

So in Liverpool we are staying at The Liner which looks impressive and again is near the train station in readiness for a day trip to Edinburgh and to Holyhead for our ferry ride to Dublin

London Hotel…

As with any trip finding a good place to stay is always hard especially if you don’t know the area, all you can do is look at where you arrive and leave from, where transport is and then places you want to visit during your stay…

London is a pretty BIG place…

I liked the Bloomsbury area due to it being not too far from the St Pancras Station where the Eurostar arrives from Paris and also where we will catch a train to Liverpool a few days later…

So after much looking by myself and Diana from Travel Escapes who at the end suggested Royal National Hotel, so that is where we are now booked into…

It also is a pick up spot from some of the tours we are booked to go on and one is a very early started so didn’t want to be traveling to far at like 5.00am in the morning…
