Yeah, I might be, a little bit. But how can you not be with those adorable accents and kilts and shortbread and hairy coos?
I tried to fight the call of the highlands, but it was no use. And now I’m headed back to Scotland in a few weeks where I’m going to try some slow travel. That is, instead of packing my bag every morning to hop the awesome Haggis Adventures bus to a new town, I’m just going to stay in one place. And take… it all… in.
That’s right, I’m doing a week in Edinburgh and the more I look into it the more I think that even a week might not be enough time to absorb all that the city has to offer. I may sneak away for a day to Glasgow, but otherwise I’m going to do my best to just wander the streets, see the sights, and not be in a rush to get anywhere.
I think it will be nice for a change.
But I didn’t want to get so focused on planning that trip that I missed out on other travel stories and news, so I hopped over to National Geographic to read about the Mars landing – because I don’t think travel gets any more exciting than exploring a new planet – and what’s their Traveler Magazine cover story this month? Scottish Island Obsession.
I guess I just have to give in to fate. Scotland, here I come.
