Exploring the North York Moors National Park

When I lived in England, I spent over 8 years in and around the North Yorkshire area. It's a beautiful part of England, with several National Parks within easy reach. One of these is the North York Moors National Park, and I was excited for the opportunity to take Diana there when we were back in the UK recently.

Scotland Road Trip: 10 Day Itinerary

Within our busy schedule for our trip to Europe, we had carved out 10 days to visit Scotland. Although I've been to Scotland several times before, it's been years since I last visited and Diana has never been. Scotland is a beautiful country and we were keen to see as much as we could in the short time available to us. Looking back, I think we ended up with the perfect itinerary.
