Trip Update

I have made some progress on planning my trip to England/Wales in November. Actually I'm quite proud of myself, for I have booked all of my places to stay. When I purchased these tickets, I wasn't planning on having to pay for accommodation, so I've chosen to stay in hostels for much of the trip. Hostels have an added advantage for someone traveling alone: besides being significantly cheaper than even a B&B, they also have more of a community spirit. I'm hoping that I'll get to meet some neat people who will maybe want to sightsee together. If not, that's OK, too. I'm looking forward to spending sometime wandering on my own, regardless. I need to regroup, refocus, and rethink.

So anyway here's my itinerary so far (in the interest of letting potential stalkers know exactly where I'm going to be--but seriously if you reside nearby or are taking at trip at the same time, or, more likely, want to schedule your own trip so you can be with me--let me know, we'll hook up.)

Saturday, November 11th
I arrive early in the morning and I'll be taking a train from the airport to Cardiff. I'll be staying in Cardiff Saturday-Tuesday, leaving Cardiff probably around noon. I've been to Cardiff before, and I can't to get back. It's really one of the best cities I've ever visited.

Tuesday, November 14th (My 30th birthday *sigh*)
I'll leave Cardiff for Bath. I did some exploring online and found out that you can download MP3 walking tours of Bath. Perfect! I've been to Bath before, but not properly. Bath has a lot of Jane Austen associations that I want to explore. I'll be there through Thursday morning.

Thursday, November 16th
I'll wake in Bath but sleep in Oxford. I'm looking forward to exploring the libraries and museums here. I'll be here through Saturday morning.

Saturday, November 18th
I'll wake in Oxford but sleep in Stratford-upon-Avon. Cheesy touristy stuff about Shakespeare here, who actually spent most of his life in London, but still...I'm going to try to catch a performance of King Lear by the Royal Shakespeare Company while I'm here. Maybe I'll see Patrick Stewart *swoon* who performs with them from time to time, I hear.

Sunday, November 19th
I plan to spend much of this day in Stratford, but I'll be heading back up to Manchester in the evening.

Monday November 20th
Fly home.
