I have been knee deep in trip planning this week - Kayak, Expedia, British Airways, Trip Advisor all open and slowing down my browser.  The biggest helper was a site called expertflyer.com that let me pinpoint available award mile seats (it let me figure out how to book Aer Lingus with British Airways miles to save big time) But after many hours of research under my belt I have finally FINALLY booked a trip I have been talking about for over a year - A drive through northern England & Scotland. Maybe I have been watching The Trip too many times... I am really looking forward to the art that will come out of my time there later in the spring!
