Trip Log

Notes Actions
We met up with Dawn today. It's the first time I've seen her in about 8 years. How exciting! I'm so happy she decided to join us in Scotland! She arrived in Edinburgh via Chicago this morning. Brent and I had stayed in Glasgow. Dawn was going to come pick us up and we were headed for Callander, but when I looked at it, I realized that it was probably easier for everyone if we met up in Stirling, so we took the train from Glasgow, and Dawn drove from Edinburgh, and we met in Stirling, went to the Stirling Castle, and then drove on to Callander.
Brent and I have been "rationing" our castle visits to one "paid" castle per country. When we went to Stirling Castle with Dawn, though, we discussed getting a "pass" to visit multiple castles. We ended up buying the "three days out of five" pass for L30/ea, which lets us visit as many castles as we want, on three days out of the five days starting from when you buy the pass. We'll be storming the castles! Woo hoo!
