OXFORD AND WARWICK
Well...we took the early ferry and thought, "Easy peasy" it's a 40 minute border crossing into the U.S at the Peace Arch Crossing. Ha...ha...ha! They lied. It was new staff training day and it took 1 hour and 45 minutes. Headed next to Tulalip Casino where we won about $80 before heading to Seatac and overnight at the Crowne Plaza (have now found my new favourite hotel at Seatac). Next morning it was off to Alaska Air and our flight to Chicago.
Alas we hit Enterprise and they just couldn't seem to combine a car with a GPS and an actual trunk where you can ensure you luggage is safely hidden. After finally finding a portable GPS we were on our way to Shaumburg, Il. It's just about 45 minutes sort of north of Chicago. Stayed at the Homewood Suites which was excellent. Full kitchen, our own apartment, free breakfast and free dinners (Mon-Thurs). We had time to head to the convention centre for our Brickworld Badges, register and set up our wee pirate display which needed some rebuilding after being in our carry on.
We done got ourselves a new Ipad thingy but it didn't let me do my Blog or website so sorry for the delay. Just now have time to get everything put in. So join me on my journey for 5 days at Brickworld (Lego mania and after 5 days I still didn't see everything). That folks is a whole lot of Lego.
