Well, Hubby and I took off to Scotland.  Can I say wow?  I took loads of pictures and for the next few weeks, I’ll be sharing some of those on my blog.  I’ll start with where we landed in this great country, Edinburgh.

I don’t think I’ve ever been to a place where everywhere you look, every glance over your shoulder, turn of your head, there’s another photograph to take.  The city is so old you feel it when you amble through the streets. 

When we got there, the Fringe was happening.  The Fringe is the largest arts festival in the world. Street entertainers at every corner.  Music, bands, and tons of shopping. Our favorite thing to do was to find a pub on the Royal Mile, sit outside sipping wine and people watching.

We lucked out and the Royal Edinburgh Military tattoo was happening while we were there too, and we got tickets.  This is an annual series of Military tattoos performed at the Esplanade of Edinburgh Castle by British Armed Forces, Commonwealth and International military bands and display teams.  It was colorful and awe-inspiring.

You know me well enough to know that I wanted to visit a few graveyards.  Yes, I love walking around and seeing graves that dated back to the 1700’s.  We even did a ghost tour.  Scotland had its share of spooky stories.

The trip was mind boggling and got my creative juices flowing.  I even got an idea for a book.

If you ever get a chance to go, do it. 

Okay, until next week.

Happy Reading!

  1. I just applied to be a PCA for a Deaf college student who is going with her college class to London, Oxford and Edinburgh for 3 weeks. I hope I’ll get the position and get to see all of the sites you’re seeing. I feel a little silly though because I thought Edinburgh was in England haha Also it’s about time they put your Mortician’s Daughter books on audible!!! I’ve been looking and looking to see if they had yet and was scared they weren’t going to. As a busy mom who drives a lot Audio books are the only way I can get through a book in a sensible amount of time. I’ve read the Mortician’s Daughter but am still trying to get through the second book but, it’s hard to find time. I’ll do it though. Because I love them!

  2. I’ve listen to all your books and I’m in the middle of reading this one. Being a mother of two And working graveyard it’s hard to keep up with reading, but audios are the best I can do everything I have to do for my girls while listening to your books, when I’m working graveyard I listen to your books while I work, I love it and I love you and your imagination thank you for sharing your imagination brought me and my aunt even more closer love you aunt Kathy lol.

  3. I love the idea of getting to travel to amazing, historical and even spooky places. England has a lot of gory history. I was lucky enough to go to London when I was younger. It was incredible. Scotland sounds just as amazing!! That will be my next goal. Im excited to read the book that was encouraged by Scotland!
