Scotland, my heart will always be with you! For those of you that know me, I am Scottish. I still have an accent and moved when I was 16….that was a long time ago but every time I go back it still feels like home.
We had so much fun in Scotland. Visiting family and seeing the sights. Scotland is such a pretty country with the greenest grass you will ever see, its rolling hills and the most stunning views.
For those wanting to visit I recommend a walk up Clonarc Hill as you will see the most stunning views over Loch Lommond, a walk up the Royal Mile in Edinburgh and for those that like their art Kelvingrove Art Gallery in Glasgow is great. When visiting Scotland always take a jacket and grey skies and rain are a common factor but it doesn’t ruin your trip, the locals just put up their hood on their jumper or jacket and off they go so we learnt to do the same.
Now onto England. England has so much to offer and what I love is that all cities are different. Of course there is London but this time we chose to skip it due to the ridiculous cost of accommodation. We couldn’t find anything decent for under $500 a night (crazy). Instead we went to Cambridge and Windsor and I am so glad we did.
Cambridge is such a gorgeous place that has the most amazing atmosphere. Gorgeous buildings everywhere you look and so many people out on bikes. It is such a fun town with quaint pubs all throughout the city. If I could turn back the clock and do Uni again I think I would pick Cambridge, it’s got a very special vibe.
Chris and I have been to Windsor before but we decided to stay there for a few nights to show the kids. All Miss 5 wanted to see was the Queen on our world travels so a visit to a castle of hers was a must. We walked along the River Thames, fed the swans, strolled around Eton and went to Legoland it was a fabulous couple of days.
I am writing this blog from the plane on our way to New York so I will finish there so I can post it. Can you believe I can do it from the plane – so cool!!
