Hello, Nathan. And Greetings from Bonnie Scotland.

Well, aren't you the lucky one? So much to see and so much time to see it in.

Firstly, let me agree with (almost) everything that people have said about Paris. It is wonderful. The one thing that I would disagree with, though, is the comment about the restaurants being expensive. Not necessarily so. Try the restaurants on the Left Bank, close to the Sorbonne. Good stuff, very international and - for us - very inexpensive.

Enough about the French, though.

Take a short trip north into God's country - Scotland.

Fresh air. Superb walking in the Highlands, see if you can spot Nessie. Excellent Art Gallerys (The National Gallery in Edinburgh - The Kelvin Grove Art Gallery in Glasgow). We might be attached to the north of England geographically, and we might be felt to be part of England in some people's minds - but we are a separate, thriving, different country from England and well worth a visit.

The history is immense. Visit Edinburgh Castle where Mary, Queeen of Scots was held captive. See the 'Honours of Scotland' - the jewels which the monarch holds at coronation, and which are never allowed to leave the country. Even Elisabeth of England had to travel to Scotland to hold these before she became Queeen of Scots. Bruce, Wallace - freedom fighters, monuments, trails - shhesh, I'm glad I live here.
