Greetings from Scotland

September 11th, 2020 at 07:29 pm

On Wednesday DD and I arrived in Edinburgh for our 14-day self-isolation before she can start the university here. Because of the limited flight options we had a circuitous route from Milwaukee to Atlanta to Amsterdam to Edinburgh. I was far more apprehensive than usual about flying, but we seem to have gotten through things ok.

We had long layovers in both Atlanta and Amsterdam--about 10 hours total. In our terminal in Atlanta only one food option--Chinese food--which is not my favorite before flying with all that sodium. Amsterdam was a little more active, but we were so tired by then we mostly walked around and then sat and sat and sat some more.

We haven't seen much of Edinburgh as we're staying in the port area and are supposed to have no contact with people. Our airbnb host brought in our grocery order before we arrived, to avoid us shopping. We have been out for walks along the sea, but have spoken to no one except our taxi driver. Luckily the sea front is so beautiful, we've been happy enough staying in, watching TV, reading, cooking, and for me--working.

This is Day 3 of isolation; only 11 more to go!

    So pretty and nice. Wow I can't believe you have a kiddo in college. Okay those years of blogging sure went by fast. I recall when your daughter was the ages of my kiddos now about 10 years ago.

    What does it feel like??

    Oh, how frustrating to be in Scotland and not be able to get out and looke around! But I suppose you have already enjoyed a lot in your previous travels. Good luck on the rest of your quarantine.
