I travel domestically and usually with my 11 YO horse: first trip next is to the January USEF Awards banquet in Lexington, KY. My mare is receiving many awards for carriage driving and has been nominated for their national horse of the year award. Now it is up to anyone with an email address to vote. Please vote for me, too: equestrian of the year! I am the only AARP member and only senior citizen to be in the running. Voting closes midnight January 4th.

 

usef.org and the voting links are on the right side: 2016 Horse of the Year (national: Sjaantje) 2016 Equestrian (Gail Aumiller)

I travel as a single and I too have difficulty with the brogue. The first b&b I'm staying at has Haggis as an option for part of breakfast. I think that has magical qualities and will allow me to understand the accent.

My daughter and I are Outlander followers. We made the trip to Scotland for that reason. I will go back one day, it is an experience you will never forget.

Scotland- had to go after my wife got hooked on the Outlander series of books. After I watched the first season of the TV series, I agreed! We're joining a small-group tour, then afterwards driving south through England for a week before sailing home. I've always had a tough time understanding the Scotish accent, so it could get interesting!

Yeah. I keep thinking about the Alps. Need to go while I'm still able to do serious hiking.,,,,,,,, I assume the Swiss Alps, not Italian? Is there a particular area/city you like?

Will be hiking in the Canadian Rockies, a bike trip (as in bicycle) somewhere in the midwest, and an annual trip to the U.K. Will be visiting York/Yorkshire, Edinburgh, Glasgow, and hiking the Trossachs.

    Both the British pound and the Canadian dollar are at record lows against the U.S. dollar making these destinations as inexpensive as they have ever been.
