I wanna go to Scotland! Waaahh!!!
Okay, I'm not the type to be envious of other's good fortune, but... . Lindz just got back from a two week tour of Scotland. She brought her pics in to work to show us and now I want to go more than ever. I know that pictures never do a place justice, so when her snapshots take my breath away - I know I'm missing something fabulous.
I'm sure everyone has someplace they've always dreamed of seeing. I have several - Hawaii, Australia, Venice - but Scotland is my Holy Grail, so to speak. It's where our family finds it's roots and and my imagination takes flight. Plus, how do you beat a country that has beefy men in kilts? Not to mention the BEST accent on the planet.
Lindz showed us pictures of Edinburgh castle, Holyrood Park, Fairy Park, Loch Ness... . The list could go on forever. All places I'm dying to see. Angel and I keep talking about taking a tour with our clan so we can visit all the Irwin/Erwin clan holdings. One of these years, I'm actually going to find the money to do it. I'm thinking now is the time to start a fund.
Sigh. On the bright side, she brought us back really excellent gifts. Compact mirrors with celtic designs on the case and Shortbread cookies direct from the Royal Mile. So cool.
*Sniffle* I'll just have to wait for my turn,
