Windsor Castle and home

Who do I look like?

DSC_3987We walked through the town of Salisbury and a square with a farmers market being set up.  Had a “Full English Breakfast” (with
a long flight later in the day, we skipped the baked beans) at the Kings Head Inn, the only place open at this hour.  With our bellies full and a coffee in hand we did a drive by of the Salisbury Cathedral (picture to the right), a beautiful old church in a cute English town. With Jake at the wheel, we were on the road with the top down and the sun at our backs.  Next stop Windsor Castle.

I would never do this!

We spent an hour and a half checking out the castle, witness a changing of the guard, giving the queen a kissed and saying hi to one of the Royal DSC_3999Guards before making our way to the airport and the 7 hour flight into NYC and then the hop to Boston.  Everything when like clockwork on our way home except for our ride from airport that was late, Alice.  You would almost think she did not want us to come home so early.

Changing of the guard, how cool

Windsor Castle

I had a shower at the airport and we were upgraded to business class (life is good) on one of American Airlines new 777-300 planes (a very different experience to our way over on one of AA old planes). We could not decide which had a better seat and amenities the new plane on it second voyage or the car we had just returned.

This is the only way to fly.

Alice,

Thanks for letting us go! We had a great time that we will both never forget. Love you.

PS: I just upgraded us to Business for our France trip! 

Another nice ride

About JSH

There are more than 195 countries in the world by my count and I want to see them all before they all start to look the same – The United Nations has 192 members, but they do not recognized two independent countries, the Vatican City and Kosovo. U.S. Department of State recognizes 194 independent countries around the world, but their list has a political agenda and is missing Taiwan. All of this is without getting into the dozens of territories and colonies that are sometimes called “countries” such as Puerto Rico, Bermuda, Greenland, Palestine, Western Sahara, and even the components of the United Kingdom (such as Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales, and England) and without counting states and provinces like Texas and Montréal that think they are independent countries. No madder how you count or tag them they are changing, starting to look the same and losing a little bit of themself every day. I do not want to see the world through the eyes of Las Vegas or Disney, like reading the Cliff Notes of a Hemingway novel; you get the idea but miss the point! Life is short, but how long live is up to you…
