Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside of a dog it's too dark to read

Lifestyles of the rich and famous...

Henry VII and Hampton Court Palace- another beautiful day walking in the footsteps of royalties of past. Immediately upon arrival, the sense of awesomeness sets in. The grandeur and impressiveness of the palace is still holding after all these years. If you look carefully, you can still envision Henry walking through the main courtyard or through the gardens. You can still hear the sounds of everyone rushing around trying to win the favor of the king and to please him while he entertains guests.
We are beginning to wind down our travels but we are still going out in style. I hope we can all hold out a little bit longer though- about half of us seem to be dropping off. All the traveling and walking around and definitely taken a toll on the group. Tomorrow is our last full day but it's probably for the best. I think it's time for some of us to return to the real world with fond memories of this incredible trip.
