As we mentioned yesterday today is our last day in the UK. We are sad to be leaving this amazing country, but we are also excited to be going home. We miss our family and friends very much, and are anxious to start planning our lessons with our new materials and supplies. Most of today was spent picking up final teaching items, and trying to find a carry-on size bag for Tammy to pack all of her extra items that will not fit in her suitcase. We finally found one at Camden Market, which the salesman even measured it to double check that it is the right size for Continental flights. We brought her new bag back to the hotel, filled it full, and are now worried that it weighs more than 40 lbs. LOL. We are hoping that they do not weigh her bag tomorrow because if they do, she will be wearing all of the clothing in her suitcase and I will be traveling home with the Michelin Man.
This afternoon we stopped at Caffe Nero one last time and sadly had our final coffee/tea and snack with them. This evening we are going to have fish and chips for dinner, which was the meal that we had our first night here so we thought it would be nice to end with it too. The concierge at our hotel has been kind enough to set up a private car to take us to London Heathrow Airport tomorrow morning at 6:15 a.m. Our flight leaves at 9:30 a.m. and is scheduled to land at George Bush Intercontinental Airport at 1:30 p.m. Justin and Cody will be there to pick us up and we are very excited to see them! Overall, we have had an AMAZING experience and we cannot thank Fund for Teachers enough for giving us the grant for our trip! Without them none of it would have been possible! Thanks again Fund for Teachers!!!
