Dread. Dread. Dread writing profiles.
Things I can't live without include books, coffee, wine (white in warm months and even some cold, red during the cold, cold months), conversations over amazing food, art, imagination, some alone time and the chance to see something really beautiful.
I'm planning my first solo trip abroad to the UK (Scotland and England) in October 2012 and hope it's the first of many. My biggest fear is the trip ends up only ordinary because I don't find out about the cool things the locals actually do there.
At present, the trip is going to be Edinburgh, Glasgow and somewhere in the Highlands (I'd love some advice!) and then onto London where I'll meet a friend and her family.
My perfect trip will include lots of walking, sipping and meeting; eating great meals; enjoying art and history but always being open to a change in plans when an adventure comes along.
I am looking forward to the soloness of this trip but am known to be a pretty amenable traveler.
