Back in Edinburgh

Back home in Edinburgh after a restful few weeks away ...

... for the first time in years, we actually went abroad for one of the weeks - and before you ask, yes it was all done by train - and, believe it or not, we made it all the way to Rome: have a look here to see just how simple it is ;-)

Was a real pleasure travelling thus - I know I'm biased, but really no comparison to flying and seeing nothing but the sterile interior of airports ... instead we traversed most of France, Switzerland and Italy; all in a day-and-a-half, yet with time to see and experience a lot more than from +30,000ft ...

... our second week was in the South East of England, simply doing the return journey in reverse but jumping off the Eurostar as Ashford International railway station.

Back to reality on Monday :-(
