Hi all. After a couple of false starts we're starting get moving on our first real OE adventure. The wife and I have just turned fifty, we're kiwi's living and working in Australia and plan to visit Scotland and England in August, trouble Is where do we start!

I have a cousin in Scotland so I think we'll use his place as a base but we don' t really know what we want to do.... We see all sorts of tv shows with great events and scenery but now that its our tern to see it for real we're a bit overwhelmed ....

So all..... Any ideas to help with our initial planning? We would like to see the real country, people and events.....ll

Any ideas would be most welcomed.

THANKS Dave
