I titled this post, 'Driving Through Scotland', because that is exactly what we did for one day. My time spent in Scotland wasn't very long, and to see as much as we (my parents and I) could in the free day we had in Glasgow, we decided to hop on a bus. We drove up to Inverness, made a u-turn, and drove back. I definitely did not see enough and my time off the bus was very little, so one of my goals this year is to head back over to Great Britain and spend a good amount of time travelling Scotland. This goal has had me thinking about what I did manage to see, and I wanted to share some of that beauty with you!
We started the day off in Glasgow, in the rain. And it was still so beautiful. Cold, but beautiful. We had just come from a very hot Rome the week before and were not prepared for the cold (even our Glasgow area friends were telling us it was unseasonably chilly).

I don't know what this area is called (if you do, please let me know in the comments), but I fell in love with it! I love the little white house in the middle of nowhere, the sheep grazing in the grass, and the stunning mountains in the background. If I could live here for a few months with my books, wood for the fire, food, and... well if we're going to dream, a sexy man (preferably one who know what to do with sheep since I have absolutely no idea how to care for them), I would be very, very happy.
I was sick during this trip because, that's my life. So while everyone else from the bus hopped on a boat to float out into the middle of the lake, in the cold, and the rain, to look for Nessie, my parents and I went inside the local watering hole and drank Scotch. I think we had a better chance of spotting Nessie at this point. We never got drunk, we had shortbread to soak up the alcohol.
What are your favorite spots I should visit in Scotland and England? Leave your thoughts in the comments. The more places I want to see, the harder I'll work to make it happen! Cross you fingers that I'll make it over this year!
