I was surprised when I realized we had only been in the UK for six weeks now. I feel like we have seen so much and met so many people that it had to have been longer. We are back in the London area again and getting comfortable in our sixth house since landing here. Looking after three lovable dogs.
I get ahead of myself though. We had an incredible time enjoying Edinburgh and the lively urban lifestyle it provides. However we were able to balance that out with a week in a region called the Scottish Borders. Such a different perspective on Scotland. Absolutely tranquil and peaceful with not a streetlamp to be seen and the quiet at night allowed for deep wonderful sleeps.
I would be remiss if I didn’t also mention the hospitality we encountered in The Borders. The homeowners we were housesitting for went far above and beyond what we expected. We were introduced to some of the local residents and taken for introductory walks to help orientate ourselves to the region.
Scotland has been a total win for us. We appreciate we have been incredibly fortunate with the weather, but the people and the the country itself were the best part. We look forward to returning to connect with old friends and explore further and make new ones.
