kai_wulf's Visit Plans

Early this morning I recieved the exciting news that my wonderful Wuffy has aqquired his flight tickets from Atlanta to London. I can't wait! Now there's no more fears of it not going ahead, I can lay out some dates and ask you, my friends, when you are free as we would like to visit various parts of the country, I certainly want to show Kai as much as I can.

Some events we want to go too are fixed such as ConFuzzled and Trooping the Colour. Others are not but I want try and make the most of the time he is staying. We may be possibly hiring a car for some days out as well, otherwise knowing in advance is great to book cheaper train fares.

Ideas that Kai & I have discussed include:
-Visiting Scotland (Caingorms) or Wales (Snowdonia), one of them
-Touring London, day-trips or hopefully a few days together crashing with local friends
-Castles, Kai wants to see as many varations as he can!
-Local sites such as Stonehenge, Bristol and Bath
-Photo days at some Zoos or Safari Parks, friends welcome to join in
-Day-trip to a Theme Park (Thorpe Park or Alton Towers?) Would love go with other friends
-Equine Events interest Kai, I may recommend going to a day at the Royal Windsor Horse Show
-Coastal Towns/Boat Trip, Kai loves the sea, so got to spend some time about it
-Furmeets, we may turn up to one or two if we're around
-Various cities, and seeing local friends in those areas

Another event that Kai is very keen to do is a spending some days in France, probably Paris. timduru would you be happy to accomodate us perhaps at sometime? Certainly discuss the idea further online in the near future.

Kai arrives on 28th April, he will depart on the 7th July.
Please comment/e-mail/text or call me, hoping to start drawing the plans up this month, thanks everybody!

My dearest, I cannot wait to have you here to feel your snuggles and kisses in-person. I love you, Kai! <3

Also wish you all a Happy Easter, if you have chocolate eggs...lucky! I need to buy myself one. XD

Woof!
That is wonderful news for you indeed! I know I mentioned that I was interested in doing something after ConFuzzled this year. But the reality of other vacation time needed for different trips cut into my travel time this year for ConFuzzled this year. Mylo and I arrive Thursday morning, manly this is for me to adjust for the 6 hour time difference. And we both depart on Tuesday morning. So it is possible to do something for the rest of the day on Monday. I not made any hotel arrangements yet for Monday night since it I still had not fully planned it all out as of yet. Granted we could easily stay another night at the CF venue location. I also can do some research on my family tree in Blackburn, so if your off to some far distance place right after CF I'll still have somthing todo.

Re: Woof!
I haven't booked the trains for ConFuzzled yet. We're due to arrive Friday lunchtime and well for departure we were considering maybe late afternoon on the Monday so we could take some time out and show Kai more of the city. Could certainly consider taking another night to extend it to Tuesday, could try and get a room together, suspect it'd be cheaper. Be great to catch up with you both, since I won't be at EF myself.

Indeed considering the car for Scotland/Wales and some other sites not near the towns. Certainly the major towns & cities are easily reached by train, but that's why I am asking friends when they might be free.

Still there's also coaches and such too, I remember going by bus a few places in the States, wasn't bad at all. I'll have my lover for company so won't be bored at all.

Indeed, that place was awesome, visited about 5 years ago. Also looking for a 'base' for some excursions into the Peak District and other cities in Yorkshire. :)

Plus, be nice to talk about the transatlantic relationships, since we'll be wanting to try and begin organising something if we do (as we hope) get along well together IRL.

Dunno if You/Kai are interested in pagan sites but I live about eight miles from Avebury, and Stonehenge is only a bit further down the road. We might be able to work something out.

Large sofabed available here if you two want to stay over.

Kai likes celtic stuff I believe, but certainly be interesting to take a look. Stonehedge was on the list for sure, its not too far from here, just getting there is the issue heh.

Thanks, what's the villages like around you btw? You seem to get a lot of wildlife too which is cool. :)

There's a few other interesting things round here: the Kennet&Avon canal, Grafton pumping-engines, various 'Chalk Horses'... and yes there's also lots of interesting critters (I have a dirty great forest as my back garden...)

Oh yes, the Kennet & Avon Canal I'd like to see, I saw it in David Dimbleby's "How We Built Britain". As well as those chalk horses, a very British Landscape icon.

Re: Wildlife parks.

I have a whole slew of them around london, lemme know and I'll get them to you. British Wildlife Center is not to be missed, if you happen to be around on a weekend.

Well me and Kai are into photography/video production so we'll be doing lots of pics. I was thinking of some of the big safari parks or zoos where it can be possible to get natural looking shots. Hmm, what's at the British Wildlife Centre I wonder?

Ah, can't help with the bigger places. I prefer visiting smaller places, or just the parks like Richmond or Bushy for deer/macro.

Here's the British Wildlife Center.
http://www.britishwildlifecentre.co.uk/

It's in Lingfield, Surrey, you will need to take a cab there if you don't drive though.

Dropped you a pm.

Actually Twigmouse and I went there by train and walked from the station... but it's really quite a long walk, and a bit complex to find a suitable way, so we got a taxi back to the station afterwards. Lots to see at the centre, certainly - particularly lots of small cute fluffy stuff :)

Thanks Gallen, must say that your photos make me feel shameful!! I need more practice but that is why I like visiting such places. :)
