Spent a week golfing in Scotland. Travel related message below.

Several very different "infrastructure" items of note.
All hotels had dual flush toilets (we put these in our home a few years ago).
Instant hot showers. Special box in the shower heated water almost instantly for your shower.
Average speed checks on major roads. Camera's at various intervals check your speed over several miles (kilometers) and determine your AVERAGE speed. Tickets are sent automatically to vehicle owner.
Didn't ride any mass transit. Walked from airport hotel to airport as hotel wasn't running their airport shuttle.
Everyone masked up indoors if standing, masks could be off if seated. Saw a few violators of this, but really very few.

Haven't traveled inside the USA since January 2020 to get a current comparison.
