    Hi Wilson

    you brought back some great memories of a trip I had to Belgium with my son ,he was only 14 years old and still talks about it. I am Scottish and I guarantee you some great scenery in Scotland.

    We were driving around Nottingham twice and detected that the city is not as interesting as we expected...
    [​IMG]

    so let's go to the campsite.... mhh nobody at the reception...except from our evening meal which was running around ....yum yum...
    [​IMG]

    first put up our tent and than let's go out hunting...
    [​IMG]

    we are surprised about all the different kinds of huge familytents again and again...
    [​IMG]

    seems to be something like an ecological farm... there were even two horses at the back...
    [​IMG]

    catched the guinea fowl and made a perfect pizza from it [​IMG]
    [​IMG]


    The next day we were back on the road...
    [​IMG]

    Horse racing is very popular in England...

    a little snack and a new GPS-cable... but this gave up the ghost after 3 days... from this point we only had a map instead of GPS... but it come to light, that this was the more varied way of traveling [​IMG]
