    Have you travelled to Britian with your chair yet? The hubby and I are considering a long vacation in the UK. We’re thinking of one of those fly-drive deals where we land, get a voucher book and a car, and we’re off on our own. Vouchers for 7 nights in hotels (the last next to the airport) and 7 dinners, ferry crossings to the mainland and Scottland, and the like. Sounds great… if I can get around. :P
