We’ve been home now for a week. The dust is settling and I’m back to work – full-steam-ahead. But I’m all the better for having had this wonderful vacation, and I didn’t have the opportunity to share photos with you while I was on the road. So here are some of the highlights. And a few final thoughts.
These are just a few of the hundreds of photos that I took in Edinburgh and Cardiff. It’s just a taste of what we saw. It was cold and wet the entire time we visited – but that didn’t get us down. We expected that sort of weather – it was, after all, Scotland and Wales in winter.
Public toilets in Great Britain are better. They’re more efficient – even the automatic flush toilets. But most of them flush with a no-touch wall sensor.
Tipping is typically at about 10%. This is because people get a living wage and healthcare. I think that’s better.
There are temperature controls on the hot water in the shower. That is to say, there are actual temperature settings. This makes so much more sense.
Heathrow Airport is very efficient. Much nicer than Birmingham Airport.
I really want to go back.
That’s all I’ve got. That’s my mite.
