Trip To Scotland & Ireland: Twitter Edition

As with the Trip To Italy post, the timestamps may not be correct given the time difference(s) and whatnot. Thank you to those who followed along with us on our most recent adventure! This isn't everything that happened but I'll get to that later. Even though we had better data plans this time, the mobile service wasn't the greatest in many places so I didn't update as much as I shoulda woulda coulda. I haven't made photo posts yet but you can take a look, if you're curious, through Flickr on the Scotland and Ireland photo sets. This post also includes St. Thomas and London, Ontario as well as Toronto, yay!

learned that Cox Cabs is not the best cab company in town anymore. Finally gave Red Line a chance and they didn't let us down. #sttont

took selfie @MalahideCastleG. Later: humiliated after taking that man's arm during the tour. Not my husband! https://flic.kr/p/rTmPmU
11:32 AM - 10 Apr 2015

It was funny but embarrassing. Wasn't paying attention. In pain, taking photos, listening to tour guide, took arm of man standing beside me.
11:33 AM - 10 Apr 2015

Hilarious but awkward moment. Friend with us said it was one of those things watched in slow motion. Still, strange we had selfie earlier.
11:37 AM - 10 Apr 2015

apologized to the man (who was mortified, like I was when I felt the jacket / arm was not my husband's) & sorry to the woman he was with.
