I'll be in the "Low lands" in June. Being an avid "rockhound", are there any beaches out there, that someone can recommend for agate collecting? I know weird question...but I thought I would ask.:)
My daughter will have finished a school trip up in Glasgow, Scotland in June. I would like to meet her and then take a week to travel down towards London. No rush. . .we would like to make it an adventure, see little towns, try local fare, etc. I wish I knew more about the area, but I don't even know where to start. Help! :) Any guidance will give me a much needed boost and support net.
I was thinking of adding a few days in Edinburgh onto my August trip, I haven't booked my air yet but the week that I'll be there with my husband is Aug 15-24. So I can add some days onto the beginning (probably the 10th-14th) or I can add onto the end (25th-31st). Just looking quickly I noticed that not only is the Fringe Festival going on for the 1st-25th but also the Military Tattoo from the 1st-23rd. Doesn't that make it crazy busy having both of them at once? Or are they really part of the same festival? I can squeak out a couple more days with the 25th-31st but if the Tattoo and Fringe Festival are amazing, then I can afford to pay the inflated prices.
Rooms, of course, are already being sold at a fortune even with plenty of availability. If my primary reason for going was to visit a couple of the castles in the surrounding area (Stirling, Craigmillar, Linlithgow are possibilities), might it make sense to stay outside of Edinburgh? Or would it be better to pay the extra if I want to see part of the Festival at night? I've made a cancellable reservation just in case I opt for the earlier dates, I do need to find some flights at some point
