Holiday plans

I’m off for two weeks on Wednesday, and have spent a day off (today is the local holiday for the Glasgow Fair) doing some final planning. The highlight of my trip will be mullet-bagging in Suffolk – more on that soon – and I will also be catching up with friends and family at both ends of the UK.

It’s all a bit whistle-stop – London, Ipswich, London again, Winchester, Aberdeen, Inverness, Skye, Inverness again, and back to Glasgow. If it wasn’t for staying in London twice with the same friend, I’d be in different places for seven consecutive nights. That would beat my previous record of five nights in different beds, which was a trip for my old work a couple of years ago. On that journey, I slept in Perth, on the overnight ferry to Shetland, Lerwick in Shetland, Kirkwall in Orkney, and finally Thurso before arriving home in Inverness somewhat bleary-eyed and weather-beaten.

Good job I’ve got two clear days back in Glasgow at the end of it all before I have to go back to work.

  1. You should be a rockstar with an itinerary like that!!

    Have a fabulous time and don’t forget to take LOTS of photos. I’ll be keeping an eye on Flickr… {:->

  2. Surely when we were travelling we managed more than five nights in different beds?

    And what about that time you did your brothel hop round the north-east?

    I’m going to Egypt tomorrow, not Nigeria. I’ll be staying in Cairo somewhere but working somewhere off Alexandria. I’ll see how many friends I can make and how many shops I can be invited into.

  3. Hi Niall, yes we did but not five consecutive nights in five different beds. We were in lots of places for only one night, but never five of them in a row. The most I can think of is four (Frankfurt, Heidelburg, train to Prague, Prague itself… though were we in Prague for two nights?).

    Have fun in Egypt. I’m mightily relieved you’ve been there already and can’t tick off a new country!
