Travel Plans

Autumn  is coming soon, how about making a trip to Europe?  i have not been to the many countries in east or West Europe as yet.   My last furthest trip was during the spring and I spent two beautiful weeks in Scotland.  The weather was at its best,, it was very cooling and I love it very much though I was wrapped up from the top to the bottom.  This was my second trip to Scotland, my first time to this beautiful country was in the 1980.  I was there to attend my brother's convocation and that was my first trip overseas. I remember during my two week stay, my brother took me around a few places such as Edinburgh, Dundee and down south to Lindon.  I can still remember the historical castles and one of them is the Edinburgh Castle.  It was one of the most memorable place I have ever been and I wouldn't want to miss it when I went there again last April.  The scenery was so spectacular! I can remember going to the beautiful parks and gardens, the flowers were fully bloomed then. Now thinking back I wish I could make another trip to Edinburgh once again. I would love to visit the cathedrals and the museums, Mary King's Close and the Outlook Tower.

But the next trip I would like to visit are some Europe countries such as Italy, Austria, Belgium, France and the list goes on and on.  But before I go, I must get more information about these places I wanted to go.  I am sure my kids will love to follow me.  My second son has plans to further his studies in UK. I have seen him checking out details on some universities and I hope he will make his decision soon.  His finals will be in December and hopefully by then he will be able to make up his mind.  Before he goes for further studies, we hope to do some traveling, together as a family.  I guess traveling is in our blood... Lol... Most important thing is money when it comes to traveling especially to faraway places.  Better put some savings aside from now on, it is never too late to save, right?


  1. We love, love, LOVE Edinburgh! Definitely visit again.

    Six years ago, we rented an apartment (I forgot the name, but it was next to a brewery). The apartment was very affordable then, but it has doubled now.

  2. mrs mayhem, thank u for coming by. yes,edinburgh is very nice, i love the place!

  3. Hi Claire, yes will be nice, however I prefer Glasgow, not so cold. While Edinburgh is the capital city, Glasgow is largest with more excitement I believe.
    Must try the whisky, make you feel warm.
    While there take some time to travel south to the Lake District. Will be nice.

  4. loo: thanks for the information, so u were in glasgow last time? no wonder u love drinking whisky now. :)

  6. I don't know why I never took my wife anywhere during Autumn when the leaves and trees are so beautiful in red, yellow and gold shades!

    I realised we have been going to places like start, middle or end of Winters!! We will be climbing Mount Emei in China this Winter. Brrrr Brrrr! Cold!


Thank you, readers!
