Today we are back in London for the night before boarding our flight back to Melbourne bringing to a close our holiday.
The Caledonian Sleeper was the overnight train that left Inverness last night arriving at Euston Station this morning with us on board. The train is tired and as in the process of being replaced. We were supposed to be on the new one but it has been held up with issues!!
Not to worry as we are here now.
Our 8 week holiday was full of highlights from the Fjords of Norway and picturesque Saint Petersburg to the rolling hills and mountains of Scotland.
Queen Elizabeth transported us seamlessly ( and very comfortably ) throughout the Balkans and Fjords exposing us to wonderful places, sights and people over the 4 weeks we were on board.

Our land travels by self drive saw us traverse from London to Durness at the top of Scotland with memories to cherish in between.
We travelled approx. 1600 klms over the 3 weeks up hills, down dales, small lanes, freeways, around small villages and large towns.

We stayed in Bed and Breakfast establishments, hotels and Self catering apartments of varying standard through out our journey. And of course Matts pub at Tangley "The Fox Inn" where we had an enjoyable stay and catch up with Matt and his daughter Millie. Matt is Celeste and Kerry's cousin who has made his home in the U.K.

Kerry and Andrew are good travel companions and we enjoyed many a laugh and shared the sights and discoveries of the trip.
The weather gods were very kind to us as in the main the sun shone for us over the holiday.
A great trip with many fond memories.
