    Time to Pack our Bags Again

    A travel blog entry by davidandmaria on Dec 20, 2014

    ... it had taken pretty much the whole day so David decided to 'open the bar' early at 4pm. It's not fun packing, but some beer and wine helped us unwind.

    After another delicious meal at home, David phoned his brother, Derek. It may seem unworthy of a mention in the blog, but they haven't been on the phone for years. Literally. There have been a few emails, but that's about it. It was good to catch up...

    ... a piece of work to expand canal accessibility in Scotland. What they did, was to build a rotating boat lift connecting the Forth and Clyde canal with the Union canal. The wheel raises boats by 24m, but the Union canal is still 11 metres higher than the aqueduct that meets the wheel and boats must pass through a pair of locks to get between the top of the wheel and the Union canal. It is the only rotating boat lift of its kind in the world and you can take a ...

    ... brunch at Oink, pulled pork sandwich cafe. Delicious. Then we stopped in at the People's Story Museum, which was interesting and most importantly free. Not something worth paying for. We then headed to The Real Mary King's Close, a tourist trap of the underground city in Edinburgh. While I say it's a tourist trap, but it was fun and very well presented, and you got to see some authentic housing and working conditions of the past.

    ... all the way through Scotland. We made our way to Glasgow. The workshop was again a fine example of the Scottish kindness. They got it fixed promptly so we were on our way again with dry nights. Along with wee gifts of tinned haggas, caramel chew stuff and the most delicious caramel wafers! We kind of didn't realise, not sure why, how cold it would be in Scotland at this time of year!! Blimm'n freezing! Amazing scenery but it wasn't ...
