It’s been a while since our trip to Europe, so I thought it best to finish off the series. Our final two destinations after Belgium was France to see Versailles and Paris and then finally Amsterdam.
Following the week in Scotland our next destination was Ghent where we were due to spend a week celebrating the wedding of Duncan and Sarah. The week turned out to be rather relaxing and an appropriate follow up to Scotland before heading to the hustle and bustle that was Paris.
The second leg of our overseas trip was a visit to Scotland for just over a week. As mentioned previously in my post on Rome, Scotland ultimately proved to be our favourite destination. Our time there consisted of two parts. The first half we spent travelling north by car from Edinburgh, past Inverness to the town of Dingwall before returning back to Edinburgh after a stop at the Loch Ness. The second half of our stay in Scotland was half a week in Edinburgh itself. It was the time in the Highlands that we particularly enjoyed.
So as I should have predicted, I made no time for posting updates to my blog while I was away. Instead I spent my down time geo-tagging and uploading photos which kept me more than busy enough throughout my trip. Rather than attempt to cover the entire vacation in one big post, I’ll post an update per a country, in order of visit, over the coming days and weeks.
Tomorrow we finally head off for Europe! The bags have all been packed, unpacked, repacked, unpacked again and contents photographed for insurance purposes and finally packed one last time. There’s really nothing else to do now than to show up at the airport and hope that everything goes smoothly, flights are on time and we arrive in the right spot all in one piece, hopefully with our bags.
