“Talent is cheap; dedication is expensive. It will cost you your life.”
– Irving Stone, The Agony and the Ecstasy
Planing is half the fun…sometimes.
Getting ready for our trip. This time we are organised, we have booked our hotels, our in country flights. We have booked the car and tickets to events.
We’re making use of our loyalty points and programs. Even I am impressed with our organisation skills.
Elf tip: We love Hotels.com – you collect nights from stays and these add up to free nights in lots of lovely locations.
We’re a month out from our trip so next on the list:
It pays to be ready and prepared.
We’re off to one of my favorite places, The Natural History Museum! This time we are going to see the new Venom exhibition.
First of all, book tickets, the queue is something else entirely. The size of it would strike fear in to the heart of even the most dedicated museum lover. Luckily we have booked tickets, so with rather smug smiles we sidle past the massive line and straight in.
The exhibition, is beautifully put together, with lots of information and specimens as well as real life survival stories. We spend a wonderfully morbid hour and a half perusing the fangs and barbs of snakes, jellyfish, spiders and all sorts of insects.
Get in before it closes, if you are a member it is free!
We are looking at the blank slate that is 2018 and making some plans and brainstorming some ideas for the year to come.
We’ve booked in a trip to Australia and to Hong Kong and are raring for that one. We are making plans for a trip to Wales and possibly back to Edinburgh.
Also on the cards is a British Sign language course or many a French Class. We are definitely signing up for a cooking course and have an adventure in Covent Garden planned.
But….we are on the look out for inspiration, what should we do? Where should we go? What are your favorites?
Making plans is full of excitement!
