The good news is the thumbnails and photos are up on my photo site.
Our trip consisted of a whirlwind tour of parts of England and Scotland, with various modes of transportation.
These included -
Sleeper train, London to Edinburgh
Car on the Scottish Highland and Isles
and Our Own Two Feet everywhere
My favourite thing to see - I love just driving around in the Highlands and on the Islands. The scenery is breathtaking. You cannot take an ugly picture.
My favourite thing to do - We got a little gps before we went, and Patrick entered in the coordinates for a bunch of little sites off-the-beaten-track. It's amazing to be in the middle of nowhere, with no one around but sheep, and see something as impressive as a 5,000 year old burial site with gigantic standing stone circles.
Also, if anyone ever makes it out there, I would recommend seeing a broch or two. They are amazing honeycomb structures –built without mortar– still partially standing.
Most surprising site? - White sand beaches on the Isle of Harris. Really.
My least favourite? - I'm sure I won't make any friends with this, but –London. Too many people. Patrick wisely limited our time there, and we spent our one full day on a double decker tour bus.
Where's the kitty? - Some of you might know that I planned to smuggle a moggy home. Unfortunately, we only met one, and the ones at Harrods were asleep (and £700).
How was the driving? - Patrick did a fantastic job, I was only afraid for my life a little. Many of the roads we were on were one lane, 60mph, with sheep. This means there was a lot of brake slamming, but we all lived through it.
I'm sure there will be more...
