In the autumn of 2005 I received a package from The Churchill Center in Washington DC announcing plans for a trip to England, “Churchill’s England: The 12th Churchill Tour”.
It’s interesting the timing because in the last year I’ve been thinking a lot about educational holidays. Yes, it’s nice to go and you see the sights and treasures of of a new city but in my travels I want to mix in educational experiences and this seemed like a perfect opportunity.
I was immediately interested but I thought “I can’t possibly take a week or two off of work in the spring in order to take this trip.”
Then I thought to myself, “Why not?”
Why not indeed.
As I was reading through the itinerary and the description of the trip I saw I was limited to 50 participants so I immediately got on the telephone to call the Center and registered myself for the list.
Ever since that moment six months or so ago I have been anxiously awaiting the arrival of springtime.
