Links to Writing & Marketing Blog Posts PLUS Pictures From My Adventure in the UK

At the top of the London Eye
I’m back from the UK and exhausted. I’m more tired than I was after I ran the Air Force Marathon last September. If it was possible to have a travel delay, we had one (except for the awesome rail system in the UK).
At Covent Garden

Yesterday, I started the day at 12:00 AM EST and crawled into bed at 10:00 PM EST. My brain isn’t working so well this morning even after 2 cups of coffee, but I think that’s about 22 hours without sleep. Instead of napping during the international flight, I watched three movies. LINCOLN was just as good the second time around.

I have many observations to share, but for the next day or two, I’ll post pictures while I try to get my head around my first experience overseas and what I learned. I do know that my idea of a vacation has always been a couple of weeks at the beach reading and relaxing. Spending every day of a two-week vacation sightseeing (or traveling) with little or no down time requires, at least for me, a week to recover. Then I’m off to NYC for a couple of weeks. 

The trip was, however, the most exciting adventure I've ever had, and Ken is an incredible boyfriend to have given me such a fantastic gift. I have read many books about London and Edinburgh. Now, I have wonderful memories to treasure and write about. Thank you, Sweetie, for this gift.
