Let me start off by saying everyone should try and get to Scotland in their lifetime. It's such an amazing place. I am sold on it! :-) I am determined to find some Scottish ancestry in my family tree. Surely there is some! :-) Just a little? Please?
I love the whole 'flying' thing (except for airport security and hassle.) and even though the travel time was something like 19 hours, I still enjoyed every bit of it. (Not so much so on the way home, I confess. :-) It is weird traveling into the future, so to speak. Scotland is eight hours ahead of where I live. During the trip, we only had about three hours of night. We got into Scotland at noon and despite not sleeping for more than an hour (maybe two, but I think not.)during the trip (and not really sleeping the night before we left! :-) I was fine being awake. I didn't experience any jet-lag in Scotland, which was great. Who really wants to spend their vacation tired and bleary? NO ONE! :-)
I'm just going to post a few of my favorite pictures. :-)

I want to post more pictures but I'm still in the process of transferring the pictures from my sisters computer to mine. I don't have very many of the pictures on my 'puter yet.
I'll just sum up by saying Scotland is amazing. I love it.
I might post more pictures later...we'll see. But thanks for stopping by and for being patient while I got back to normal after my trip. Well...as normal as I get! :-)
I heard This Song while I was in Scotland and it reminds me of Scotland every time I listen to it. Um...the group is kind of geeky looking so I would suggest just listen...don't watch them live...ever! Seriously.
