Scottish Day Off

Today was not filled with tourist sites but instead a day of relaxation. This was one of our free days on the 10-day trip in the United Kingdom. Greg had spent his day golfing in Edinburgh and walking the Royal Mile in search of a t-shirt that stated: “Blether: a person who chatters incessantly; one who babbles on and on …” as a gift for his wife. No, he wasn’t being rude since I had mentioned that I wanted one before leaving Scotland.
As for me, I went along with a friend to get her tattoo this morning. Her family is originally from Edinburgh, so it is more of a spiritual symbolism then just something “pretty”. Other than that (and getting lost while trying to find my way back to the hotel by myself), the day was uneventful. So, why even bother mentioning it? Well, it is to show that not all days on vacation need be spent running around like a lunatic and it is the time you spend doing what you love or time spent enjoying the company of friends that truly matter. That is what makes the heart sing.
So, is our adventure over? Not quite. I am posting this early today as I will be leaving shortly to join my friends in queue for the new Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows book to be released at midnight.
Until our next blog from the Emerald Isles – may health, happiness, and love follow you wherever you may travel.
