We’ve got some exciting news! After an 18 month absence, we will finally be returning to the UK for a long visit later this year.
We last visited Britain during the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee last year and it was an amazing experience. Ever since we’ve been chomping at the bit to go back.
But we decided to not travel for the last year or so while we’ve been waiting for the arrival of Miss Anglotopia (previously known as Anglotopia Jr. #2). Mrs. Anglotopia doesn’t travel well while pregnant, so we’ve stayed close to home, dreaming of going back and saving our pennies for our eventual return.
Well, now that Miss Anglotopia is here, we can plan our next trip to Britain!
We’re going this December for 33 days, we’ll be arriving in the UK in Mid-December and staying until Mid January.
In between we’ll spend some quality time in London, then spend the actual holidays in our favorite place in Britain: Updown Cottage in Shaftesbury, Dorset where the owners, Jane and Simon have kindly agreed to decorate it for us for Christmas so we can have a traditional English Christmas.
We could not possibly be more excited. We’ve never ben to England over Christmas so this will be a truly lovely experience.
We booked our tickets with British Airways last week and we have 163 days until departure.
I’m planning a series of articles on our trip plans as well as preparing for an English Christmas. So, there will be plenty to read. And of course, while we’re traveling we’ll be sharing pictures, videos and more of England during the holidays.
