The Machu Picchu experience

Amazing I have to tell you, after coming down from Wayna Picchu, I really felt sort of sad, because I really wanted to see more of Machu Picchu.  Joyce and I were pooped out from the hike or climb and well I thought that we were done, but lucky us, we had to walk back […]

Herculaneum is just as cool as Pompeii.. maybe even a little more awesome…

Ercolano What a gloriously sunny and hot day to venture to Herculaneum.  We decided to see Herculaneum instead of Pompeii.  Why?  Well, while Pompeii is synonymous with Italy and Mount Vesuvius, Herculaneum, I had never heard of until Whitney told me about it.  Originally our plans were to go to Vesuvius and then Herculaneum.  It […]

Square of Miracles – Cathedral and Baptistery

The Cathedral The end of our long day came to an end at the Cathedral and the Baptistery.  The Square of Miracles is beautiful.  However, I can only imagine during “tourist” season how incredibly full of people it becomes.  It was crowded when we were there and I don’t believe that was “tourist season”. In […]

Have you heard of Balvenie Castle?

Balvenie Castle Near enough for a day drive from Aberdeen.  I did make it to my B&B and it was a wonderful sleep and delicious breakfast.  Off I went after Dave parked my car for me the night before… I tell you after this trip, I am so much more confident driving on the left […]

Dunnottar Castle

Dunnottar Castle was incredible.  I have to say, incredible!  Read a little on the history.  https://www.dunnottarcastle.co.uk/  https://www.dunnottarcastle.co.uk/2018/03/17/origins-of-dunnottar-castle/  I drove there from Ryton, near Newcastle Upon Tyne. It was a long drive, but it was nice.  I was able to hone my skills on the “stick shift” car on the left side of the road with a […]

Newcastle Upon Tyne

Well, after my three days in Edinburgh, it was time to pick up the rental car and do some mileage towards Newcastle Upon Tyne.  I have posted about Newcastle in my 2016 trip, but this time, I was driving, with a Sat Nav and Google Maps.  Here goes my test theory on which one was […]

The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo

The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo!  What an event and one that I have wanted to see for quite some time.  It’s not easy getting to Edinburgh in August, planning, vacation request and of course the almighty dollar helps, but I did it this year.  If you have been following my travels, I came to Scotland […]

Welcome to Edinburgh!

The Fringe!  What the heck is the Fringe?  Edinburgh Festival is going on right now in the month of August and I walked right smack into it!  Dragging two bags and a large shoulder bag, I should have listened to my own tips and hints and not packed so much!!!! At any rate, after leaving […]
