No, not "a broad" in the Bea Arthur sense. "Abroad" in the fancypants sense.
My Guy has worked for his corporation for so long that he got a sabbatical. And so, we took this precious time to get off our couch and go to the United Kingdom. The trip destroyed my feet, gave me a new appreciation for free public toilets, and was generally perfect. Here are some highlights.
Instead of The Dollar Store or Dollar General, the UK has Poundland. This makes sense since they don't have dollars, but pounds. Except that we kept calling it "Poundtown," because both my husband and I are actually 12-year-old boys.
|Man, I am really good at selfies.|
|Bath Abbey has both salient and flying buttri. And my husband, listening to an audio guide and pretending it's an old-school cell phone and he's on a very important call, probably with the pope. Or Mayor McCheese.|
|Your breath is amazing.|
|People here were really on edge, never knowing when the giant tube was going to pop.|
|This is a slight exaggeration of what we traversed, but not really. And we're still married!|
Toward the end of any European trip, I think it's normal and perfectly fine to be castled and churched out. Here we are in front of the ruins of the Melrose Abbey. Yes, there's a fence between us and the abbey. Because we didn't feel like spending money to see yet another church and we decided to eat instead. It was kind of like in "Vacation" when they see the Grand Canyon - "Well, yep, there it is. Let's go!"
|Even our eyes are like, "Obligation photo. Hope skipping this one doesn't make us bad Christians."|
|Step aside, haggis. This is the true taste of Scotland.|
Once the jet lag wears off, we want to start planning another trip. Where should we go? What destinations have you loved?
