          Monday was our last day in London before leaving for Edinburgh and, at this point, we would like to acknowledge our travel consultant, Margaret of Flight Centre Sandy Bay and the fantastic job she did with our flights, trains, hotels and excursions to this point. We have had a couple of issues on our travels that we have referred to Margaret and she has followed up on them and sorted them out for us. Thank ...

          ... director was an important element of the trip for me, so I hoped that a Will would turn out to be a strength of the trip. The boys and male chaperones helped to bring bags from the baggage check to the group so that we weren't crowding the conveyor. Before long, all bags had arrived and we were ready to head to our bus. Will mentioned along the way that our bus driver preferred to be called "Del Boy" and that he wasn't sure what the driver's real name actually was. Apparently ...
