We left from Pittsburgh to Washington Dulles Airport. This was my 1st time to Dulles and I was not impressed. Then we boarded our overnight flight around 9:30pm to London Heathrow Airport where we arrived in the morning on the 15th. Although I have a difficult time sleeping on planes I did get a couple hours of light sleep.
We were doing a fly & drive tour with Brendan Tours which the cost included our round trip flight, car rental & vouchers for our B&B's & hotels for 31 nights. I was so excited as this would be so far my longest vacation! We had been planning it for over a year; looking at many books, including Lonely Planet, Rough Guide, Top 10 Guide and Dummies for Scotland.
