I went! And I've been back home for a month already. That doesn't even seem possible... Here's the highlights:
London was fun, but far too busy and fast-paced for my tastes. I feel like I can say I visited, saw most of the important sites, and have no need to rush back. Scotland was more my style. The scenery was gorgeous and since we only had two full days there, I feel that we hardly scratched the surface of what we could have seen. I'd love to go back and spend time in both Scotland and Ireland. We also found that staying in small flats with a family of five and doing everything together was, well, maybe just a touch more family togetherness than we were all prepared for! The flight home was blessedly uneventful and I was back to work the next day (what was I thinking???). I can't believe it was already a month ago.
