A short update, since I didn’t manage to post anything else this week:
We’ve been in Scotland for the last two weeks―which has been beyond wonderful. My first trip overseas, in fact. While our trip probably wasn’t the usual Highlands itinerary (we spent half of our time in Glasgow, with a day in Edinburgh, and two stops in Inverness as we drove up and back for the ferry to Orkney, which was our base for the rest of our time), it was one of my personal dream trips and I was glad that David was eager to follow me―and do the driving for the half of trip where we weren’t train-and-bus-ing it.
The weather was beyond perfect for the majority of the trip, and we had the joy of basking in the sun with the locals (without the hellish burn―114ºF/46°C―that we left back home). We were also delighted to have tea with Charlotte Hoather while in Glasgow; she’s got a very busy schedule, so it was a honor to spend a Saturday afternoon with her.
I’ll share more photos and rambling later, if there’s interest. But right now… I’m exhausted! I’d expected that jet lag going east to west wouldn’t be as difficult to bear, but I haven’t been able to switch back eight hours to Arizona time. Zzz.
