Off to Scotland!!

We're finally confirmed for our summertime trip. We're going to Scotland this July! I am really excited! Oh, the haggis, fried lamprey, blood pudding and kidney pie I will eat! I guess that's why they always wash stuff down with a strong single malt whiskey. That and to keep your business toasty whilest wearing a kilt on those cold foggy morns.

On the way there, we're going to stop over in Iceland. Iceland Air is running this great deal where you get to stay up to seven nights in Iceland and still just pay the one fare to the U.K. I figure it's a pretty cheap way to see Iceland (just hotel and food). Maybe I'll run into this little lady while relaxing in a natural spa. Or more likely, these folks:

How will you be able to dine on all of that Scotlandly goodness. I thought your new regimen only allowed you to eat stuff like that one day a week? :-)

I'm really impressed someone is actually paying attention to my posts!

No, the haggis and lamprey are fine as long as I just control my portions. So, only ONE portion of haggis, please!

So when in July are you all going? How long will you be gone?? How long will you be in Ireland?? I dare say, Luke will have problems with the food. It's not like those giant "pork Nuggets" that we ate in Germany. The apple dumplings with fresh cream are delicious!!! I lived on them for our 10 day tour. What about the delicacy, spotted dick???

It sounds like a wonderful vacation. Love, Mom

We're going early to mid July, with a couple days in ICEland, not Ireland. I'm sure Luke will eat when he gets hungry enough... even some spotted dick or a drowned baby!

What do think that good looking castle is made out of?
