Miss Party has lived and loved another amazing whirlwind of warm and friendly people, amazing sights and delicious meals! Scotland and London were a brilliant complement to each other and yet, a contrast in lifestyle, history and landscape.
In Edinburgh, our group toured the towering Edinburgh Castle, enjoyed a glamorous and unforgettable evening in an ancient castle, had a very educational Scotch whisky tasting at the Scotch Malt Whisky Society, and saw the cafe where J.K. Rowling wrote the Harry Potter series. Later in the week, we visited beautiful Glamis Castle where Queen Elizabeth and Princess Margaret lived as children (along with several spirits who regularly haunt their halls) and the legendary, St. Andrews Golf Course (which had the hubby positively giddy).
For the second half of our trip, our group trained to London and kicked off our arrival with a champagne toast on the London Eye. Over the next week we enjoyed several great London restaurants and theatre shows. We also toured Westminster Abbey, the Tate Modern Museum and the Churchill War Rooms and Museum. We allowed lots of time for some really fun shopping time in the many neighborhoods of London from Soho to Regency Park and popped over to Abbey Road for some fun pictures in the crosswalk. We even managed to get a reservation at Jamie Oliver‘s restaurant, “Fifteen“, which was a delicious meal. The topper, however, had to be Sunday brunch with Bloody Mary’s in a modern speakeasy located underneath a popular breakfast place in Soho where we entered discreetly through a 50s refrigerator door, “Narnia“-style. Yes, it was very awesome!
Miss Party adores traveling to new places and meeting new people. How about you and your family? Where have you been this summer?
The great thing about having travel as a hobby is that it never grows old!
