Hoppin’ on a plane next Tuesday and starting to feel that buzz. You know, when you’ve ticked most of the stuff off your to-do list, figured out what you’re bringing, and counting down sleeps? Yeah I’m so there.
So I promised to do a giveaway of some sort since this trip is all about spending time with my awesome brother, but also to gather research for Promised to the Highlander, Enemy of the Highlander, and a new series as well.
Here’s what we’re gonna do. Below is my itinerary:
Aug 27/28 – St. John’s to London/Lille/Arras
Aug 29 – Beaumont Hamel/Vimy Ridge
Aug 30 – Arras/Lille/London/Edinburgh
Aug 31 – Edinburgh – Royal Mile: Edinburgh Castle, Camera Obscura, The Real Mary Kings Close, Holyrood House Palace, Deacon Brodie’s Tavern, maybe Witchery Tour, Wildfire Steakhouse – best haggis ever!
Sept 1 – Rosslyn Chapel/Peebles
Sept 2 – Stirling – Stirling Castle & William Wallace Monument
Sept 3 – Callander – Balquidder/Fort William/Kyle of Lochalsh – Pictish brochs Dun Telve & Dun Troddan at Glenelg that evening
Sept 4 – Eilean Donan (Dornie)/Tongue
Sept 5 – Tongue – Castle Varrich and area
Sept 6 – Golspie – Dunrobin Castle/Inverness
Sept 7 – MacAllan Distillery at Aberlour/Culloden/Inverness
Sept 8 – Loch Ness
Sept 9 – Inverness to London
Sept 10 – London to Newfoundland I will post as often as I can from each destination with pics and vids and a description of the location plus the tie into the series. And I love hearing from you so once I’m back, I’ll compile all the comments and pick one person’s name out of a hat who will win a nice prezzie from Scotland. Don’t know what yet, but it will be fun for me to look for the perfect souvenir while I’m away.
I’m already drooling for butter tablet. Anyone have any requests? LOL
