Just one day till I leave!

OK, this is an outline of what we're doing in the UK, not necessarily in strict order and depending on weather etc:
  • Duxford air museum
  • Star One con
  • Bletchley Park
  • Hay-on-Wye ( a village consisting completely of second-hand bookshops)
  • Bath (Roman baths and a slap-up dinner at Demuth's
  • Bristol (bridge and seeing spacefall)
  • Newport (transporter bridge and seeing linda_joyce)
  • Caerleon (Roman ruins)
  • Portmeirion (Greg being a huge Prisoner fan)
  • Blaenau-Ffestiniog railway (Greg's a ferro-equinologist, which is what my father called it)
  • slate mines (for the third time in my case, the first in Greg's)
  • canal trip including an aqueduct I'm sure I saw the Two Fat Ladies on in one of their programmes
  • more canals: the Anderton Boatlift
  • Gateshead Millennium Bridge
  • the Falkirk wheel (yep, more canals!)
  • Edinburgh (because we're nearby and it's such a lovely city)
  • yet another canal with a tunnel Greg wants to go through
  • York (Viking excavations, train museum, a friend of mine)
  • tank museum at Thetford
  • assorted walks and sidetrips that might attract us along the way
Yes, there are a lot of canals but we're assuming weather and time constraints might force us to cancel a couple of them. We'll also see the air museums at Cosford and/or Hendon if we get the time.

Hey, we're geeks!
