You lads and lassies voted and it looks like the first country I’ll be writing about is…SCOTLAND.
I won’t lie, I’m quite surprised. Most people contacted me within months of traveling to Thailand and Cambodia wanting to know my itinerary, so I figured either one of those countries would have the most interest.
But you guys pulled a fast one on me and I’m happy to oblige.
I’ve been to Scotland twice.
Once when I was 17 as a Student Ambassador for People to People. (My boobs were so small. Those were the days.)
Fun Fact: I’m friends with a lot of my travel pals from this 3-week trip to the UK and Ireland on Facebook. Knock Facebook all you want, but I think it’s pretty neat that I’m still in contact with people from a trip 16 years ago.
I also went to Scotland last year after our wedding in England. (That’s a Red Bull in my hand, marriage is exhausting.)
Both times I fell in love with the friendly locals, legendary tales and gorgeous, green rolling hills.
Stay tuned for the wee tales from my Scotland adventures. I anticipate having them up in the next month.
Why a month? Well, I have a big trip coming up in 2 weeks to Spain and Portugal and want to discuss the particulars of the planning and packing involved in international trips…in real time.
