Last year, we traveled to Edinburgh, Scotland for a quick mini-moon after our wedding in Somerset, England. We spent 4 days exploring old castles, climbing rolling hills and of course, sharing some Scottish whiskey with friends. I want to keep each part of these Trip Reports as short and sweet (and maybe picture-filled) as I can, so you can easily pick out the major details.
This is Part 6 and the final post in a series about our trip to Scotland.
Edinburgh, Scotland – Trip Report Index
Part 6 – Conclusion
On our last day we just walked around and took some pictures of beautiful Edinburgh.
We bid farewell to friends with one final dinner at a Mexican restaurant. Because, when in Scotland…
It was the best God damn Mexican food we’ve had to date. And that’s from someone who calls South Florida home. We had a few pints at a local pub and made the best of our last night together. We’re fun people.
The next morning the hubster and I flew from Edinburgh to Amsterdam to Atlanta and then home to Fort Lauderdale. We’re travel troopers.
I cried as we took off on the flight home to the states from Amsterdam. My emotions boiled over and the reality of it hit me. I didn’t know the next time I would travel again. I think the Hubster thought that the finality of getting married had just hit me, but he was dead nuts wrong.
I just didn’t know when I’d be hopping on a jet plane next. Traveling is in my blood. (Thankfully that was remedied 6 months later for our honeymoon to Cambodia and Thailand.)
What would I do differently?
Hit the Highlands. We realized too late that we wanted to visit the Highlands and go “Nessy hunting.” All the tours to see Loch Ness were booked and none of us felt comfortable enough driving a manual on the left side of the road. I would also require everyone to speak with a Scottish accent if we were to drive on the left side of the road. Some people just aren’t as good as that as me. I bet they felt intimidated.
Even though I’d been to Edinburgh twice at this point, I’m still itching to get back to Scotland. There are so many places that I have yet to see and explore. I just want to put on my hiking boots and Nessy hunting hat and GO! I just can’t get enough of the Scotland.
I hope you enjoyed our trip to Scotland as much as we did.
