Do you think you'd be able to save up enough to make it a reality next year? The wife and I have always wanted to visit England and we figure this'd be a great event to plan it around (with some more typical touristy stuff crammed in before/after). And it'd be pretty awesome if we had a whole pack of out-of-country Archivers there all at once.

(This of course presupposes that wifey isn't 8 1/2 months pregnant and/or we don't have a newborn baby at the time, which is a definite possibility).

Those flight costs, though...ouch!

Oh, and regarding credit/debit cards...your Visa or Mastercard will probably work but you need to call your provider before you go and let them know you're travelling. If charges from half-way around the world suddenly show up on the card, they might decide it's been stolen and cancel it while you're on your trip. Bank cards are a bit more hit-or-miss in my experience, so bringing plenty of cash wouldn't be a bad idea.
