Over spring break we took a trip to Scotland to continue is our latest trend of travel where it is not hot. (Admittedly we’ve gone too far as all the places we’ve been have not only not been hot, but actually snowed at least once during the trip.) A few things I now know about Scotland:
- As a rule, the folks are quite friendly. Way to buck that stereotype, Scots.
- Haggis is delicious. (I ended up having it at least once a day.) Also blood pudding is delicious.
- For the most part, Scotland operates strictly between 8 and 5. Plan your days accordingly.
- History and grudges go back. Way, way back. No tale has less than 300 years backstory.
