For Your Weekend

One thing my mom and I have always loved to do is trip planning, from researching exactly the best places to go to finding just the right place to stay. This week it’s provided a distraction from more pressing matters at work and home because we’re in the middle of planning a family trip to Scotland for next summer. I am over the moon excited! (Have you been? I’d love to hear your recommendations!) Other than that, we have a sick kid at home so are staying close to home this weekend. I hope you and yours have a happy one. Here are my picks for links for your weekend reading:

    We had a great time in Scotland last summer. Because it was just Kurt and me traveling, we didn’t make too many plans and wanted instead to spontaneous (more difficult with kids). However, in retrospect I wish that we had planned some tours and trips in advance because we weren’t able to some of the things we wanted. There are a lot of boat trips, kayaking, hiking, whale watching, that you might want to plan in advance. Let me know if you want to know more about our itinerary.

      I’d love to hear more about your trip! Scotland is a mystery to me–we are very excited but are still trying to learn more about it so we can decided where we’d like to go.
