Elizabeth (hitchhikerbooks) Oooh I really want to go to Scotland! I went to Paris when I was very, very little, so sadly I don't remember much :(. Were they on your own or family/school?

I've been CRAZY lucky, my family is made up of travelers, so I've been loads of places! I spent last summer in South America which is probably my favourite out of all the places I've been (I know it's an entire continent, but still haha).

My entire family is Scottish - even though my part of the family don't like there - but on my dad's mum's side I have some American (2nd and 3rd) never met them though but ya never know if I find myself in America! I went to Paris for my birthday when I was 6 or 7 them in last year of Jr.school I went to Normandy with my class.

Elizabeth (hitchhikerbooks) So are you from Scotland then? And if so where in Scotland (general area, I mean). I had a Scottish roommate from Edinburgh my freshman and sophomore year. Yeah my family is pretty spread out all over the world (and it's part of the reason I've seen as much of the world as I have), so I have met most of them, but I imagine the majority of my family I will have only seen once in my life :-/

My father is from near Edinburgh and my mum is from Aberdeen and a few of my other relatives are from one of both or in between.

I however was born there but moved from Aberdeen when I was a few weeks old to Eastbourne (where Angus thongs and perfect snogging was filmed/set in fact I think our old house is in the film at one point) then I moved to the west Midlands

Elizabeth (bonniebay) | 27 comments Hi again,

I'm in Scotland and what I love best is Day Trips usually going around our favourite places here in my backyard LOL!

A few times we've been to England, visiting South Port, Liverpool (for The Beatles Memory Lanes) and London for all the Royal stuff.

Today's is Diana, Princess of Wales 16th death anniversary - so sad! May she finally found the peace she was looking for!

I'd love to go to Niagara Falls and/or Paris some day, well that's it so far!

Was your teacher a maths or a French teacher?

Something about paisley rings a bell I'm not sure why May be somewhere I went when I was younger or one of the many places my father grew up.


message 16: by Elizabeth (new)
