Traveling is not only mentioned to discover new places, but I have to admit this is usually the reason for me to travel. Being somewhere far away from home where the culture is different, spices and music are diferent so I feel like being in a total different world. It's also important for me I will hunger for my own house, cats, friends and family again at the end of our journey. This time it will be totally different. This time we will travel to a new place, Scotland, not to discover but just to be with our family again.
When my sister in law and her husband moved to Scotland, my nephew was only a half year old. Since they went there, 3 years ago, we've seen them 2 times. Last year my other nephew was born and I haven't seen him yet. He's 1 year old now.
As their aunt I can't show up without any presents of course so I first wanted to take a little suitcase with me but all the presents I bought today won't fit. And I also want to take some typicall Dutch stuff with me for my sister in law as she is missing 'appelstroop' and 'hagelslag' haha! (chocolate on bread) I received an e-mail this morning from Lot (my sis-in-law) that my nephew told everybody that we are coming this weekend. In stores, at the bakery, nursery...whole East Kilbride knows we're coming and I really can't wait! :)
