As more things fall into place, I am sure that I will be posting more updates for this trip. After returning, I’m even more sure that there will be lots of pictures to sort through and post to this blog as well.
Deborah and I have not traveled to Europe since our trip to Italy in late 2014. Each of us has only been to Edinburgh very briefly so we are really looking forward to taking an in-depth tour of the Scottish highlands. For my part, looking for Nessie (or perhaps slightly more realistically, just visiting Loch Ness) has always been one of my major remaining bucket list items.
I wanted to get all of the plane reservations and lodging accommodations booked and that has now been done. The general route for our itinerary has fallen into place as I booked the various locations. As the map will show, we will be making a circle trip around the highlands, starting by flying into Edinburgh on Nov 1st and then beginning our auto tour. We will return to Edinburgh on Nov 17 and will spend four nights there before returning to Albuquerque. That will be the time when the holiday lights begin so it promises to be a nice time to stay in and visit that city.
