    Our first day in Scotland has been a blast, yet utterly exhausting! We took off from Chicago last night around 6pm and It was about an 8 hour flight, so it would've been about 2am in MN when we landed in Edinburgh, Scotland. But because of the 6 hour time change, it was actually 7:30am when we landed. So we haven't slept much if at all! The flight …

    Hej dagboken och alla läsare.

    Det började bra med flyget försenat till 09:30. Det var ju snålt med tid för transfer redan innan....

    A rainy morning and a good day to be inside, at the Bannockburn Visitor Centre. This is the place where Robert the Bruce defeated the English in 1314, a feat that eventually established lasting Scottish nationhood. Exploiting the marshy ground, Bruce won a great tactical victory against a much larger and better equipped force, and sent Edward II 'home again, tae think again' as the Flower of Scotland reminds us.

    We travered from Aberdeen this morning with a morning stop at St. Andrews. Cloud and wind greets us. We stop briefly at the Old Course club house, along side the ocean. This is one golf mad town. Golf shops every 50m. We walk the main streets, visit the Castle ruins and head to our next distinction , Edinburgh. We ...
