I interpreted adding years to your life as healthy and strong additions, let’s go that way!  :) 
Meet you in the circles, I’m playing with Conda!

Oh I can love that idea... adding years while growing younger sounds good to me.

I will also keep the secret of the person who got stuck in the trees because I wasn't there. No, really. I wasn't. Nope. Not me. :rolleyes:
Hmm... that new drink sounds very interesting. Let's all meet in the bar as we sail to London and give it a try. 🍸:dancingelephant:

I'll meet you in the bar Diane and I'll have a Kompot with a touch of vodka as i think it should cure my headache.

Good news from the Barman; he has managed to get in the following drinks. Medovuha, a honey-based alcohol beverage. Kompot, boiled water with fruits and sugar served cold. And of course, some Vodka. I don't want to think about the deal he had to do get to that haul.

You do all realize that climbing through one of the rings to add a year to your life is just a myth? I will keep the secret of the person who got stuck trying to add twenty years to their life!

One of the things that add to the mystery and magic of the forest is the way the light sparkles thorough the trees.

Add a bit of sparkle to your layout. When you are finished post your layout in the World Tour Gallery.

Next, we head for London.

`Glad your keeping it a secret Marilyn I know it wasn't me :giggle_bear: If adding years to our lives makes us slim I'll gladly climb through hoops :)

May 23rd
Ghosts, torture, execution, jewels and ...... Ravens

We are off to the most secure castle in the land. The mighty fortress known as The Tower of London. Apparently, the Tower's defences only failed once, that was back in 1381, so it should be safe from all of you.  It has been "home" to many rivals and enemies of the crown. Don't get any ideas!

Did you know all coins of the realm were made in The Tower from 1272 until 1810? 

One of the most famous legends of the tower surround the ravens. The story goes that should the ravens leave the Tower, both it and the kingdom will fall.

Start a new layout with a black background.

Oh I love the Tower of London but did not know that about the coins!  I wonder what fun we can have here, but I guess we shouldn’t be caught in trouble - I certainly wouldn’t want to be left here!   :D

I think we should "explore" the crown jewels, don't you?  Maybe they've left a few just lying around! :D

I have to be out early tomorrow so I’m posting the challenge now!

May 24th
Today's drinks are tea, sorry guys only available hot with milk, and London Dry Gin. There is even a Beefeater on the bottle.

There is a saying that is often used in England. "I can only take you somewhere twice. The second time to apologize." I am surprised none of you got arrested. Whose idea was it to get a "closer look" at the Crown Jewels?

Any story explanation is worth a bonus stamp on the passport.

Let's just get the layout finished and get out of here before anything else happens, add a feather to your layout. When you are finished post your layout in the World Tour Gallery.

Wasn’t my idea but I think I saw a bunch of people trying to get to the jewels.  No, maybe that was a mistake...  Oh, I can’t remember, it’s time for bed!  😴

But, here’s my layout:

I'll take the beefeater Gin thanks Marilyn. I'm not a great tea drinker unless its Earl Grey or Green tea :) 

I blame those Ravens, they gave me a lift after I had the gin and if they hadn't squawked and dropped the feathers (I was holding on tight though) the others would have got away.

Here is mine Good Friends

Here is my black/feather LO. I am going to try the Beefeaters....I'm not much of a gin drinker but I will try. When I travel I always try foods/drinks I have never tried before.  Hey girls that was fun with the ravens....Marilyn is a bird expert...well a chicken expert  from all those visits to her sisters chickens. Is that a black raven feather stuck in her hair????

It wasn't my fault! A raven came along and I decided to follow it. We all know birds are attracted to shiny things and it looked like this raven was trying to feather its nest. So I decided to help by adding a few shiny things to her nest. How was I supposed to know they were Crown Jewels??? (I mean besides the thick glass cases and armed guards? ) Fortunately the raven and several of her relatives came to my rescue by making such a racket that the guards got distracted and I got away. Oh... wait... When I say "I" or "me" I'm really referring to an UNKNOWN person, not me! :)

Did you know that some pieces of the crown jewels are detachable and morph into pendants or pins or the center of tiaras? I'm not saying what I snuck into my "fanny pack" but it sure wasn't the entire tiara. And Andrea - I'm not saying where you hid the scepter, other than I know you were having trouble sitting down on the tour bus.
