Hey Iain! Wow! Wonderful to see you! biggrin.gif Thanks for reminding me about the borders! Funny, I was looking at my map of Scotland last night and looking that part of the country over as well. I have a feeling it is going to take me more than one trip to see everything I want to see. cool.gif I want to see as many castles as I can. Didn't realize there were some on the borders as well. Glasgow and Edinburgh is considered central belt, right?

Oh wow! You are going to NZ? Are you going for 3 weeks yourself? Fred just loves it there. He wanted to move there even! He wants very much to go back and take me there to see it too. I can't wait till you go and tell me how you love it as I am sure you will.

Thanks Cu Dubh! Yeah, it will be a wee bit of rush, won't it? The more of Scotland I look on the net, the more I want to see. Sigh.... I was telling Fred last night all what we can do in Glasgow. Thanks for the weather info too. I wanted to stay away from the tourist season, even though I sure would love to go to the Fringe Festival in Edinburgh. But that's in August as the height of tourist time and flights are more expensive too. Thanks for the suggestion of clothes too! Summer clothes in September.......in Scotland?!

Cu Dubh, do you take many trips outside of Scotland or the UK in general at all? Where all have you been? You all are so lucky cause you get to see and experience all these different countries and cultures.

You all are so much help and I am so excited.

I can't wait to hear about Brian's trip in a few weeks to see what he does and thinks.

Aragorn. Have you been over to Scotland yet?

If you're thinking of going in September then you'll need your jumpers & anoraks. Especially late Sept. It get chillier at night too.

Cu Dubh! That is what I thought. Was to bring warm clothing in September. I thought you were messing with me. tongue.gif laugh.gif What's an anorak? unsure.gif Love your new avatar, btw! wink.gif


Iain! Al Pacino is a big hero of mine too! I own all the Godfather movies, of course, and have seen him in just about every movie he has made. Since I am half Sicilian, it is more likely that he is my Uncle Davy. laugh.gif


I looked on my Scotland map last night at the borders. I am not really familiar with the area so any particular towns you might suggest I try to see? I actually know someone who lives in Stranraer. He has showed me pictures of his town and surrounding areas such as the beautiful Galloway Forest. Looks really beautiful. smile.gif

Hai Maddie! Hope you are doing well! smile.gif

Jedburgh

Hawick

Peebles

Naw, for some reason i had it in my head you were going in August for the festival. September can still have warm days though. No way of knowing really. rolleyes.gif What you think is cold though is probably my idea of a heatwave. laugh.gif

What's an anorak

It's a waterproof jacket. Not sure what they call them in the US.

I think parka or windbreaker is a good term for anorak.

Hai, I'm doing ok.

Thanks Iain very much for the suggestions. I added them to my must see list to put in my visit to Scotland folder. I had never really considered the borders cause everybody I know always goes to the Highlands, which I hope to do as well.


Cu Dubh! I wish so much I could go in August to the Fringe Festival in Edinburgh, but the flight over the pond is so much cheaper if we wait a month. I would especially love to go this August/ September for the big event taking place this year. wink.gif

Thanks for telling me what an anorak is. It would be like a "rain coat" for us or like what Maddie said, a parka or windbreaker.

Hai Maddie! You have been to Scotland. I would be interested in hearing about your travels there and where you went and did. Weren't you just there for a month?!

Bye fur noo! wink.gif

I don't think rain coat quite gets it, a parka describes anorak best. If I'm not completely mistaken its an eskimo word, at least from far North, that makes the original not just rain coats but warm and comfy as well.

I've been several times to Scotland. The very first time when I was a toddler, lol, while my father worked in a place near London and later in Dundee. Sadly enough it's been my longest stay. Ack.

My last stay was actually the shortest one, just 8 days, with six days on the Isle of Skye. Couldn't help but strolling a day in Edinburgh though. Next visit will be in September (a bheil thu deisil, mo bhana-chariad a Fhaileas?), can't wait.

Oh, well you learn something new every day! Thanks Maddie! How lucky for you to have been on Scottish soil several times. I'll be lucky if I do it one time! smile.gif

Your going this September? Cool! Where are going to exactly? To visit Faileas?

I sorely miss an edit button! LOL.

Yeah, I'd love meeting her again.

My job requires lots of travel to my advantage . We have an office Aberdeen and flying to Europe is part of my objectives. A little detour is acceptable, as long as no extra cost do occur.

Although most of business trips are far from enjoyable... wasting hours at airports, in airplanes and hotel rooms... my favoutate example: my frequent visits to Paris. You hop on a plane, embark on the travel underground, leave at a station called Eiffel tower, run up the stairs (where is the tower???), hurry down the street, attend a meeting all fricking day long, and hurry back. Ah there's the Eiffel tower... boy.

Yeah, I've been to Paris but only because I deliberatly took vacation days.

Hai all!

I just got back from my trip up to Oregon. I was up there for 7 days and I learned a big lesson while there. You can't see and do much in that short period of time and we did A LOT! So we figure we will probably have to narrow down our trip to just Glasgow, Edinburgh, Stirling and Inverness and stay in a B&B where we will be centrally located to these places. Hopefully we will be able to do that in a 10 day trip.

Thanks Faileas for your invitation.

Maddie, I bet the travelling is a real pain but how neat you get to travel abroad and see other countries. I am lucky if I get out of the state! LOL
