Land Tour of Scotland and/or Cruise to Russia?

Jump to last reply

I'm not sure where is the best place to post this question.

For a long time, my partner has wanted to visit Scotland. I have seen some bargain airfares recently for Newark-Copenhagen, and believe that we can fly from Copenhagen to Edinburgh and back economically in May-June. So I'm tempted to reserve the flights, and plan a ten-day tour of Scotland by car and B&B as a birthday surprise.

In the process, I've also run across some bargain 7-10 day RT cruises from Copenhagen to St. Petersburg, via Sweden and other Baltic states. I have always wanted to see these areas. It is tempting to combine the Scotland and Baltic trips since we would be transiting by way of Copenhagen, and this may be our only opportunity to visit all of these areas. Although the cost is a concern, it is not an overwhelming constraint. Time is more of a constraint, since we don't want to be gone much more than three weeks, in order to care for an elderly parent.

Any thoughts?
