Saddest, weirdest, 'funnest', trip ever

Just got back after nearly 4 weeks in the UK - won't have a chance to work on the trip report for a few days. Did everything from scattering Mom and Dad's ashes in the Lake of Menteith, to riding on the back of a motorcycle in the Dales, to spending nearly 12 hours on a sailing barge moored on the Thames just up river from HMS Belfast during the Jubilee Pageant, to eating lunch next to Joan Collins (!)

Thought the jetlag wasn't supposed to be so bad flying back west - I'm a zombie about now

Gadzooks! Your trip sure beats the hop-on/hop-off bus!

I think I'm always affected worse by the return trip west. It takes several days before I'm back to normal. At first I'll be exhausted at 4:00 p.m. and wide awake at 2:00 a.m.

Ditto from me; I look forward to hearing more and like what I've already read.

Flying back west from Europe kills me. I'm mostly in bed the next day.

Took my sister's ashes to Greece. It was a disaster, and it sounds like your trip was better than mine.

Janis....I was at a cocktail party with Joan Collins yesterday and she kept gushing all about meeting a famous California chick named Janis something-or-other. If I had only known.

Waiting for the rest of your report..great title..a grabber.
