Scotland was by far my favorite country to travel too! It was so beautiful and I needed a break where everyone talked English lol. If you think the UP is hilly then you have to go to Scotland my friend!
We flew over on Ryanair which we had already booked before we heard about the problems they have. Still made it there & back alive just not impressed at all with them. Cole Clint Ethan & I split from Kevin & Billy who are the other Kettering students at Ulm. We traveled north to Inverness. The goal for the other 3 were heart set on golfing where golf was born but since I suck at golf & it was expensive I toured the town sight seeing and enjoying some time alone. So I backpacked for 6 hours and covered pretty much the whole town (15 miles). As I did this I found a big white tent that something smelled amazing so I poked my head in & found out it was a wedding so I got out of there pretty fast lol. Well I redeemed myself when I was wondering around ness island & I heard a little girl running toward me so I turn around to see the flower girl jumping on the stones when she slipped & I instinctively caught her head inches away from the rock...I looked up and the wedding photographer was on me helping her up & the groom thanked me then I told him congratulations then I left before he reconised me from crashing his wedding earlier.
The next day I tracked down my family history, found my family crest & picked up a few things for my grandpa Hamilton who has the ties with my Scottish history. I want to go back and see the castle & palaces that my ancestors built & ruled over the years.
