Scotland Here I Come!

In my last post I mentioned that I have got a new job. It's as a tour manager for a rail travel company and I've been allocated a tour of Edinburgh and the Scottish Highlands and the Islands of Skye and Mull. 

All I can say is wow! It's many years since I was in Edinburgh but I've never been to the Highlands or any of the Scottish islands so I'm really looking forward to it. Just hope the weather is good in June.

I was also allocated a river cruise from Prague to Berlin which I was delighted about but unfortunately it hit right on my granddaughter's First Holy Communion so sadly I couldn't do it. Never mind I'll wait to see what else I've been allocated.

Meanwhile I've completed the training, absorbed mountains of information and now I have to start my own research for the tour. Seems a long time to wait until June I just hope I get an earlier tour allocated as I feel like a child who can hardly wait for Christmas!


  1. Oh My Gosh!!!! That is so exciting! Can't wait to hear all about it. My heritage is Scottish and Irish.

  2. Wow that's so cool. It sounds like my dream job :)

  3. It certainly is exciting. I can hardly wait to find out where the next tour is to. Doubt if it will be as good as the Prague - Berlin cruise but never mind I'm sure I'll enjoy it.

    It certainly seems too good to be true but I'm hoping it's as good as it seems. I used to work with one of the the tour managers and she certainly loves the job.

  4. What a perfect job that sounds to be. Like Brenda, my heritage is Scotch Irish. Can't wait for you to get going.

  5. that is so exciting and very interesting. Fingers crossed you do get an earlier trip allocated to you.

  6. Follow up Note! - I have been allocated an Isle of Man vintage railway tour in May. It's only 5 days but have to say I'm dying to go. Never been to Isle of Man & always wanted to go. Admittedly it isn't a river cruise but I do get to go on the water. On the ferry to Douglas!

  7. Trust all goest well for you in your new venture. I still think you are brave.


I'd love to hear from you:
