This is a test.  Sort of.  I just want to see if this will work. Also I will post my itinerary for the trip in case anyone is interested.

I wanted to chronicle the trip without boring everyone, so if  you want to know you can look but you won't be forced to look at boring pictures every day.

I'm still trying to figure out how to actually get pictures from my camera/phone etc. onto here, here being my tablet, but maybe it will come to me.

So here is my itinerary

Sunday, July13,  Fly to Philadelphia, then fly to London arrive Monday morning 10am, British time which is 6 hours ahead of Missouri time.
Monday, July 14 London on our own.  We hope to see Kensington Castle, Hyde Park and the Victoria and Albert museum
Tuesday, July 15, Take a tour on a coach to Stonehenge, Bath and Stratford upon Avon (home of Shakespeare)
Wednesday, July 16, London still.  We hope to take a river cruise up to the Tower of London and tour that.
Thursday, July 17, Still in London.  We hope to visit Buckingham palace (though no one is home and no changing of the guard. :(  But also we will see the Horse Guards (Where there is changing of the guard.) and some other things around the palace.
Friday, July 18, we get on a plane at the crack of dawn (literally) and head to Glasgow where we start a coach tour and meet up with our other friends who are skipping the London part.
Saturday, July 19 (Happy 50th Birthday to me and Mary Kay!!!)  We visit Loch Lomond then head to Inverness.  On the way we have a short cruise on Loch Ness.  (Nessie please show your slimy self!)
Sunday, July 20, We go to Edinburgh (pronounced Eh-din-burrow for some silly reason) and see the crown jewels and do the town tour.
Monday, July 21, Edinburgh again.  Tonight we have a free evening to paint the town red. Sleep.
Tuesday, July 22, Leaving Edinburgh and heading to Belfast to see the Titanic Museum then Dublin where we also are not served dinner have a free evening.
Wednesday, July 23, Walking tour of Dublin, see the Book of Kells at Trinity college and go to the Guiness factory (have you ever tasted Guiness?  Ewww.)  In the evening we go for a river dinner cruise on an old refurbished (hopefully) Guiness barge. (?)
Thursday, July 24  Leave Dublin and head to Killarney.  Stop at the Rock of Cashal on the way.  Evening in Killarney.
Friday, July 25,  Day in Killarney.
Saturday, July 26  Leave Killarney head to Bunratty.  Evening is a medievil feast at a castle!  Sounds fun.
Sunday, July 27  Head to Shannon airport and fly to Philly again.  Then layover for 4 hours then fly home to arrive in St. Louis around 8:30.  Oh heavens.  That makes me tired.
