FC: SEPTEMBER | 2008 | ENGLAND SCOTLAND ICELAND
1: In September, 2008 several Mohrfelds and a Lenhart embarked on a 10-day adventure traveling through London, York, Edinburgh and Reykjavik. We started our journey in London, exploring tourist sites, before traveling north via the British National Rail to the highlight of our trip - Edinburgh, Scotland. After four fun-filled days exploring Scotland, we made our way back to London, stopping for the day to see the famed walled city of York. Finally, our trip concluded with a few rainy, but entertaining days in Iceland.

25: What a great experience! Despite the rainy days, getting lost, and taking trains in wrong directions, we had a lot of laughs and fun times along the way. We learned how much Mom enjoys whisky tours and how dad didn't quite get the hang of looking to the right before crossing the road. Whenever she went shopping, Michelle would remind Mike how much golfing cost at St. Andrews. jenny waited for hours for the queen of england to wave at her from the palace balcony. jan realized she couldn't stay awake while riding on trains and that she too, enjoys a good whisky.
