  • "We Are the Tourists Who Say Ni!"We all slept particularly hard and well, which was good, as we had another long day ahead of us. Another fantastic breakfast -- this one topped off with home-baked breads -- and we were off toward Glasgow. Only the Posted by NellieVA in Spring Break 2012 -- Scotland! | Mar 30, 2012
  • Walking Amongst (and in) the GravesThe joy (and fascination) with the huge Scottish breakfast had not yet worn off on our second full morning, as we prepared to finally use our rental car and leave Edinburgh. With a right proper send-off by our inn keeper Posted by NellieVA in Spring Break 2012 -- Scotland! | Mar 29, 2012
  • Could You Repeat That?When we landed in Edinburgh and the pilot announced that it was already 18 degrees Celsium, and whipped out my phone and did the conversion. We certainly didn't expect temperatures in the mid-60's at 9:00 in the morning. Posted by NellieVA in Spring Break 2012 -- Scotland! | Mar 27, 2012
  • Running Through HeathrowAnna and I had a non-eventful flight to London. She has always wanted to fly "upstairs" on a 747, and we were able to get seats up top, which she enjoyed. Because of the Ponzi scam British Airways Posted by NellieVA in Spring Break 2012 -- Scotland! | Mar 27, 2012
  • From Heat to HeatThough we did have "Economy Plus" seats -- which at least saved my knees -- neither of us got too much sleep on the flight. As we started our descent for landing, the captain announced that we were arriving Posted by NellieVA in Iberian Express | Jul 2, 2015

  • Wales-WatchingWe made an agreement when we moved to London: We would see one new place in Europe each month. Last month was Florence, Italy; for June, Matt wanted to see Cardiff, the capital of Wales. "Jones" is to Welsh last Posted by traveljonez in A Wales Of a Weekend | Jun 18, 2015
  • Joneses and the WalesWe indulged in our B&B's massive homemade breakfast, then strolled into Cardiff's old town for a walking tour. Cardiff is a very new capital- it was just appointed in the 1950s- and creating a Welsh capital began a resurgence Posted by traveljonez in A Wales Of a Weekend | Jun 19, 2015
  • The Full Monty, & Before Mel Gibson Was NutsWe departed our cute little B&B in Perth at 9am- the adorable owner's husband kissed me on the cheek and sent me along with extra biscuits (a girl has to fortify herself). We only had one destination today- the Posted by traveljonez in Highland Flingin' | Oct 25, 2010
  • Haggis Lasagne & a Castle of Cream Puffs (& Beer)My camera is still haunted. Some part of me wishes that it were haunted by JM Barrie's ghost, because I have to admit I'm not a huge Robert Louis Stevenson fan. But on the bright side, perhaps cameras haunted Posted by traveljonez in Highland Flingin' | Oct 24, 2010
  • "There Can Be Only One"(the title is a [[http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0091203/|Highlander]] reference. But you knew that, yes?) We departed our lovely castle in Huntly and hit the road to see the Scottish Highlands. We stopped to view [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Balvenie_Ca Posted by traveljonez in Highland Flingin' | Oct 23, 2010
  • Stormin' the CastlesToday was a veritable orgy of castles. We began our morning with a full Scottish breakfast, cooked by our lovely B&B proprietor. I enjoyed the vegetarian version, while Matt chowed down on blood pudding and back bacon. Mmmm...blood pudding. Posted by traveljonez in Highland Flingin' | Oct 22, 2010
  • Dead Writers Don't Wear Plaid (Kilts)We left Edinburgh just in time- it was pouring rain this morning, unlike our sunny days. Suckaz. On the way out, I popped into one of my favorite shops- a vintage clothing store. I am sad to report that Matt has Posted by traveljonez in Highland Flingin' | Oct 21, 2010
  • Muggles, Murder, and Malt WhiskySo for last night's whisky tasting, we spent the evening at a teeny whisky pub called The Bow Bar. It's one of only a handful of pubs in Edinburgh certified by the Whisky Board. They know their whisky stuff- Posted by traveljonez in Highland Flingin' | Oct 20, 2010
  • Edin BRRRRRRRRThis morning we took a bus one hour east, from Glasgow to Edinburgh, Scotland's gorgeous capital city. And it's cold. In a semi-hilarious redux of last year's Germany chillfest, our B&B proprietor mentioned this morning that "before today, it Posted by traveljonez in Highland Flingin' | Oct 19, 2010
  • Keeping Up With the MacJonesesMatt and I departed for Scotland today, flying our old nemesis, IcelandAir. Oh, IcelandAir...how you tempt us with rock-bottom fares, then tease us with no food, sh*tty inflight entertainment systems, and a flight attendant staff that is dumber than Posted by traveljonez in Highland Flingin' | Oct 18, 2010
  • Riding the RockToday we spent exploring Gibraltar.....by bike. Gibraltar, being a part of England, meant that we had to first cross the border before cycling right around the Rock. From here one can actually see Africa in the form of Morocco on Posted by Pelican travels in The land of Pork and Cheese | Jul 25, 2016
  • The RockWe are now far South and a definite place to visit is Gibraltar. Gibraltar is a part of England and is essentially a big rock in the ocean. On the way down we stopped in at the town of Tariffa Posted by Pelican travels in The land of Pork and Cheese | Jul 24, 2016
  • Bye bye Phoebe time with Old FriendsWith a funeral to prepare for it is time to head back to Switzerland and sadly to say goodbye to our English family.
