We're heading your way in less than two months. Found a good flight in and out of Heathrow. Have decided to try a same day flight. We'll see if that reduces jet lag. The trick may be falling asleep on arrival, but something about air travel seems to wear on me.
It will be a landlubbers vacation, no cruising. I think we will try to visit Portsmouth so will probably buzz by Southampton on the train. Maybe we will shoot for a weekend trip to see what ships might be in port.
All I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by; John Masefield
