Do not attempt to pet the highland cattle.
Castles are smaller than they appear, the countryside far more rugged and more beautiful, and the sheep nowhere near as cuddly.
While in Edinburgh, eat and drink everything in sight.
The best way to experience London is with a hilarious new friend who lives and goes to school there, who will take you on a personal guided tours of her favorite nooks and crannies throughout the city, and (most importantly) introduce you to pure love in mixed nut form — roasted in cinnamon and vanilla, and served hot on the cold streets.
Forget milk and cookies — the only pairing you need is Duck & Waffle. Succulent duck breast and leg is served alongside a golden, crispy waffle, topped with a fried duck egg, and served with whole grain mustard maple syrup on the side. This is consumed over 40 stories in the air, with mimosas, while overlooking the Tower, the river Thames, and the Gherkin. I do not condone riding the elevator as many times as you can get away with — while always making sure to jump at the top right before it shoots down.
Don’t even get me started on the bacon wrapped dates. Lastly — always, always, mind the gap.
