oh. my. gosh. i am so excited that i am surprised i can even type! my friends invited me to go to london with them this december as a last minute trip! we'll be leaving on the 11th and we'll only be staying a week, but that's okay with me! i have NEVER been out of the country...which means i have no passport and i'm REALLY worried about getting it on time, since the sites say expedited will take 2 weeks. i've been reading all the info and, quite honestly, i'm confused by it all. can anyone help me out?! anybody have ideas on sites to see, where to go, where to stay (we're going the cheapo route)... as SOON as my parents gave me the okay, i knew i had to get on here and share my joy!!! AND get some advice, since i know some of you are from london!
