Kevin and Tyler's Great Adventure - Great Britain 2011

Tyler and I have decided to take September off, fly to Gatwick, raise our pointer fingers to our mouths and aim them at the heavens, and head off in which ever direction the wind blows us.  With any luck it is blowing north to Scotland and across the way to Ireland so we can see as much of Great Britain as possible. 
With any luck, we can see a few castles, tour the Emerald isles and maybe... just maybe even see some of mainland Europe.

Our one must-see is a stop in Northern Ireland where some of our kin are buried...
