And one day, I woke up to find myself wearing a burqa and smoking a hookah...

I love booking with VisitScotland, they're great. Honestly, most of the tourist boards in the UK here are really helpful. I don't use them when I go to Orkney because I adore Inga and her self-catering flats at Atlantis Lodges in Finstown on the Mainland; but since my friend Ann and I are going up by train, we need to stay overnight in Inverness each way.

I got this booking letter on 1 July as an email attachment, skimmed it and filed it till I needed to print it off today. (Off tomorrow, hurrah!) I read it through, then started giggling uncontrollably. See if you can spot why...

It's all becoming so clear to me now. That would explain why all the posted mileages switched from London to Kabul this morning....

As a Scot I can say quite happily that we think England is quite far away!!
