We returned a week ago from our long-awaited, belated honeymoon to Scotland.
I'll spare you the gory, boring details about our 3-day detour to Amsterdam while the UK recovered from the "Beast from the East" and we were able to fly in; but suffice it to say, we finally did make it.
There are many deeply personal reasons why my first trip abroad had to be to Scotland. I've been waiting 20 years to get there.
This photo was the first of many I took while hiking Galloway Forest Park - known also as "the highlands of the lowlands". I can attest to the breathtaking beauty of this region, and can't wait to return.
