A Place to Remember

When I was sixteen years of age, my Gram, Aunt Jamie, and I went to Scotland. We visited many places, such as Edinburgh, Sterling, and Dumfries. We also visited Arundel, Windsor, and London in England. The most exciting part of our trip was when we went and saw the house my Grandad born in and the family house. As I looked at those houses, I felt like I was home, I had found the place I was supposed to be. All my life I have known who I was and where I was from, I am Scottish, my Grandad was born in Scotland, so in a way, I am from Scotland as well.

The flight to London felt like it took forever, we were all so tired and just wanted to take a shower and go to bed, but we had to get off that plane and get on another going to Scotland. When we finally landed in Scotland, I couldn’t believe I was actually in a foreign country, I was so excited. The first thing I did when we landed in Scotland was to look through the window, of course what I saw were other airplanes and men running around getting luggage and showing planes to the terminal. After we got all of our luggage and the rental car, we walked outside, as I looked around, I could see so much green in the distance; so many different colors of green. I had never seen so much beauty in one place.

The first night we were there, we got lost looking for the bed and breakfast we were staying at that night. We kept driving by it, but we couldn’t find a way to get to it so we kept driving right by it and then get lost looking for it again. After forty five minutes of looking for the bed and breakfast we finally found it. We were finally able to take showers and then we went out to dinner, we found this cute little pizza place where we ordered a pizza and salad, their pizza was out of this world, I never thought that Scotland would have really good pizza, fish, yes, but pizza who knew. The pizza was so cheesy, the crust wasn’t too crunchy or too soft, it was just right. The pizza sauce tasted so fresh, it had just the right amount of seasonings to make it taste like it was from Italy. We then went back to the bed and breakfast, and went to sleep.
The next day and the following days were full of discovery and fun. We went to many castles and cathedrals, which were amazing; I couldn’t believe how beautiful they were. As I looked at all of the buildings, I could tell they were built several centuries ago; they were built strong and durable. They looked ancient but at the same time, they belonged there with all of the other old surrounding buildings, looked as if they belonged. I couldn’t believe how old all of the...
