Sure, we'll keep you guys posted on our itinerary. Basically, what we have outlined now would be 2/3 days in London, then travel North-West to Manchester & Liverpool, back to London again. Then catch the train to Paris early morning the following day and spend a two-day full trip in Paris. Finally, back to London before departing home on 11 dec. 2009.
We just got hold of some Lonely Planets' books on London & Paris this evening and they are really, really helpful. They have included some sample itineraries for various lenghts of stays in England and Paris too and looks like your ideas & information tally with most of them.
Thank you so much guys!!
