As I’ve mentioned before, I’m big with the planning of travel. The worse thing about that is when things don’t go according to my plans, I go into panic mode.
This trip to England in February is causing me to have all sorts of conniptions.
First it was changing my original dates from spending Christmas/NYE in London to February so I could go to a play; then it was the flight debacle & all that drama. Now it’s the actual play itself – it’s completely sold out for it’s 12 week run.
I know it was a long shot anyway and I probably shouldn’t have planned this whole thing around one 3 hour play but it is Hamlet so you know, what was I meant to do?
Now I am completely perplexed by the whole thing and overthinking the situation (perpetual state of mind for me), which is obviously not helping my sanity. I mean I know the trip that I had planned would be still pretty cool but now I just want to change everything again because I can’t go to this darn play.
Part of me wants to just give up on it all and part of me wants to be excited for what I am going to be doing.
Basically I have flights to London and out of Manchester and just over two weeks in-between… so now I’m thinking of doing a road trip instead of the train trips I had planned.
Even though I love travelling by train, having a car means that I can be more flexible about the route and where I stop. It also means I can spend more time visiting those gorgeous English villages and out of the way places you wouldn’t find if travelling by train.
So if I decide to go the road trip route, I can look forward to:
Have you got any tips on what places I should visit in England on this road trip?
