Flag of United Kingdom  , England,
Thursday, June 11, 1998

This holiday/vacation holds a special memory for me, because it was the year I retired from work.
What really happened was during the first days in London, I came down with the shingles.  To make a long story short, I resigned from my job after I was absent from work for three months after returning home from this trip.    Probably one of the best life decisions I have made.  

Fortunately for me, a physician from Singapore brought his family on this holiday, and he was able to feed me with pain killers throughout this tour, so I managed to "survive."    When I had plans to visit Singapore subsequent to this trip, I let them know the date and hotel I'll be staying at, and asked them to be my guests for dinner.    However, after they picked me up at the hotel, they took me on a short tour of Chinatown, and to their beautiful home for dinner.   Some years later when I had another plan to be in Singapore, I insisted they be my guests for dinner.    Somebody in our tour group suggested I take them to Saint Juliens, so that's where we had dinner.  Not the best, but adequate.

The Insight Group:




The itinerary for this trip was extensive; London, Stratford-Upon-Avon, York, Edinburgh, St Andrews (home of golf), Carlisle, Chester (Hadrian's wall & William Wadsworth grave), Dublin (I was sick in bed, so would love to return), Ennis (County Clare), Tralee, Wexford (Blarney Castle, Waterford factory, Old Wexford), Cardiff (castle), and back to London all in 17-days.
