European Adventures

One year ago today I was boarding a plane with my mom, dad and grandpa headed to Scotland.  While there, we stayed in Glasgow, traveled to Edinburgh, the Highlands of Scotland and spent a few days in England.  The train ride through The Highlands and meeting family in England were definitely highlights of the trip.  I also loved the Scottish accents, how friendly the people were and learning about my ancestors from England.  I would love to go back someday but in the mean time I will just have to live vicariously through my pictures.

I love to eat and always enjoy finding unique restaurants to eat at. We ate at a variety of places and I made sure to order fish n' chips any chance I had.   
Boar Burger
Haggis (Scottish dish that contains a sheep's heart, liver and lungs minced with oatmeal, onions, suet and seasonings).

Traditional Scottish Breakfast

Next week my travel adventures continue as I fly west to British Columbia.  If only I got paid to travel.  Now that would be the dream.
