I decided to take husband to England to celebrate his 0/5 birthday. He had kindly requested less travelling abroad in 2016 but I ignored him and planned this trip as a surprise. I got our frequent flyer tickets to LHR back in January once the dates for Goodwood Revival were known. It originally was a 10 day trip but, over time, morphed into two solid weeks in England.
