Honeymoon Recap

Benjamin Haas |

Scotland was an absolute dream! Michael and I were extremely fortunate to have good weather for most of our trip with only two days of consistent rain and most days ranging from high 50’s/low 60’s. It was perfect weather for long days sight-seeing and hiking. I’ve been asked what my favorite part of our trip was and it’s extremely difficult to just share one thing. So, I want to share a few of my favorite of each location we stopped in, along with a few challenges we faced too.  

Glasgow – a city blending the old with a modern flare  

We flew in and out of Glasgow which, in hindsight, was the most perfect way to start our trip. This city is smaller than Edinburgh so it was relatively easy for Michael to adjust driving on the opposite side of the road, as well as opposite side of the car. Glasgow has such charm, leaning into the history that has been there for centuries, but also has this industrialized feeling too. It was really neat walking through the city, touring Glasgow Cathedral, walking through the Necropolis to see views of the entire city, as well as walking through the Botanical Gardens when the rain started to pick up. Our flat was centralized that we could walk everywhere, but was just far enough off the main road that it was quiet and quaint. The best breakfast of the entire trip was at Singl-end Cafe, which we’re still talking about!
