Wow - that is incredibly awesome that NHS takes care of the ambulance and helicopter flights. Nice! This summer, I passed out (most likely due to heat) at a concert. I woke up with a paramedic in my face, and my first thought (after oh I'm *soooo* embarrased) was "I"m not getting in that ambulance - I can't pay the bill, even with my insurance!" so I sent the husband off to fetch me gatorade, sat on the sidewalk a while, and eventually we made our way home. Would've been nice to make sure I wasn't having a more serious issue, for sure, but I've had heatstroke before and was convinced enough that that was all it was to duck the probably $2,000+ bag of saline IV fluid. When I'm on sabbatical in Europe next year (might be doing a bit in Scotland), I will try to only have incidents in the UK! :)

Awesome - Balmoral in December.

Thank God that one of the good things about the UK is that when it comes to your health, medical treatment and emergencies you don't need to worry about money. Good old NHS.

If you do come to Scotland next year and you want any info or help just give me a shout, likewise if you are coming near Glasgow and fancy meeting up and/or going for a ride.

Thanks BuBu! And Kamchat :) I'll most likely message you both as my plans start firming up for next summer. Right now, I'm still at the 'look at the map and OMG it all looks awesome!' phase, but I need to condense things into about two months.

Send me a PM Liz.

2 mounths, it is long and short in the same time, but you can show great places and keep time for you too...

But beware, some places are "especialy for tourist". You have many places (awful) like that in France, and if you don't know, you will pay a lot of money for nothing...

This thread is serious eye candy

I'm surprised there aren't more crashes with all of you riding on the wrong side of the road

They ride in the good way...


Check in the past in the History and you will find the reason why we change the way to drive/ride.

Thanks ....... I'll try to keep finding more of the 'eye candy'.

The system works well over here because everyone rides on the wrong side of the road, including the folk coming the other way.

Sarah has just pointed out to me that I have misinformed you about the Queen spending Christmas at Balmoral in my earlier post. Apparently she spends summer holidays at Balmoral and goes to Sandringham at Christmas.

Apologies, but it looks like you will not be able to share Christmas dinner with the Royals ....

The craic is mighty!

Just finished reading all 252 pages of your thread, took a few days but just had to send you a big well done sir! Kam, you have a great sense of humor and a wonderful eye for beauty thru the lense of your little camera! Also, Bubu, you are hilarious! Trying to rally the lads for a month long tour of Ireland and Scotland on motos in a couple years, if we make it would love to hoist a pint at some point! Keep up the good work Kam and hope your feeling better after your last off!
