The Thistle & Shamrock Tour

The Thistle & Shamrock (a.k.a. the Look Right, Drive Left or We've Been Here Before) Tour is over. We returned just before midnight last night, tired but happy.

We had a great time and I have more than enough to blog about for weeks. But first there are clothes to wash, bills to pay, sleep to catch up on. But before I nod off, several observations...
  • Ireland was wonderful, just wonderful; but I fell in love with Scotland.
  • The food in both countries was much, much better than is traditionally thought.
  • Driving on the left is not all that hard; figuring out where you need to turn is the trick.
  • Guinness Rocks!
  • Saint Andrews is to golf what the Vatican is to Catholicism.
  • We were prepared for just about everything but the wonderful weather.
  • The place we wish we had scheduled more time was the Orkney Islands off the north coast of Scotland. It is a very special place.
