Carmel & Damian’s Travel Diary

Monday, 25 Dec 2006

Location: Tisbury, England

MapMERRY CHRISTMAS! I think I was the first one up and awake this morning but refraid from my normal antics of playing loud xmas sons to awake the household - for which I was told off later when everyone woke up! More phone calls home for family we missed last night then the presents were opened! Fantastic gifts - thanks, our only problem now is seeing whose DVD, board game or magic trick gets played first!!

We decided to go for a walk before xmas dinner so we headed off to a place called Stourhead which is where they filmed some scenes for the Pride & Predudice movie - it was amazing! It is bascially the gardens of a large manor house which was owned by a banking family back in the day but is now owned by the National Trust and open to the public.

We headed home for a huge tasty meal cooked by Anita and then because we could not move because we had eaten so much we played the board game of "Who wants to be a Millionaire" which Damian had been given for xmas. We all found the game a bit strange and none of us were making it passed £300 until we realised we were reading the wrong answers!

To end xmas day we watched 2 x movies that Mum/Chris had sent over that none of us had seen, which were "Sione's Wedding" - extremely funny and "The World's Fastest Indian" - also very funny and amazing.
