Dreaming Of The UK

I checked my Friendster account earlier and was treated to sights in England courtesy of a friend already living and working there. I saw pictures of their (his and her wife's) trips to the Wales, Scotland, London and lots more places in the UK.

I was just so green with envy because they had the pleasure to see museums and art galleries in Manchester without having to pay for airfare and without spending a dime on lodging in one of the hotels in Manchester.

And they could see palaces, cruise along the famous River Thames and loiter around London (maybe at the slightest whim) without spending much.

Now, I just couldn't help but dream. If only I can board an airplane and book myself in one of the hotels in London – for FREE. It would be lovely to take a stroll at Hyde Park or the Kensington Garden and visit the Old Royal Conservatory.

Or if I suddenly found myself billeted in one of the hotels in Birmingham, by God, I would be heading straight to the Planetarium at Thinktank, which is the world's most advanced digital planetarium projection system, the very first minute.

If only.

That's the way I feel about Italy! I would go there in a heartbeat. The only thing stopping us is Hope. I don't want to be that far from her and I really don't want to bring her with...
