Flew out of the northeast USA this morning, leaving behind a brutal winter. Arrived safely on the Caribbean island of Aruba. Nice to be out of the cold! However, can't wait to get to Spain in June.

Weather in Aruba is very pleasant, among the best I've experienced in 20 years visiting the island. Breeze is lighter than normal, about 10-15mph. Temps in the morning around 72 F, afternoon about 85F.

Caribbean Sea, not bathwater, but very comfortable.

Will be here for about 2 months.

Pedmar,

Safe travels to Viet Nam. Probably rather humid there?

Someday, maybe I will visit there.

thanks great Vietnam ,amazing that after so many wars the country is so lively , working attitude, and well to listened for better ideas to do better. the future is bright and very cheap to live.

weather was great 23C and warm not humid, the north da nang ,hanoi was a cooler into 15C but great. I drove for kms at end and took domestic flights from old USA air force base now airport at chu lai to da nang, and then da nang to hanoi to get back home. AFter coming in at Saigon, ho chi minh city, the locals still call saigon the central city around districts 1-3.

robbieroy and pedmar,

I'm flying to London then taking the train to Edinburg. My wife and I were married there 20 years ago in June, which is the reason for the return. Hope to see nice people at the registrar's office again.

Then to Spain, so far, the only other place I would like to live someday.

20 years... time flies when you're flying and busy in general. When were were in Scotland 20 years ago, did a bit of driving around the Edinburg area, but didn't get to Aberdeen or too far afield. Not this trip, but another one I have in the long-range plan, is to amble about Scotland for a few weeks, minimum.

All the best,

44

Edinburgh is a great city Admiral, but you already know that!
Congratulations on the 20-year anniversary and I am sure you will have a great trip.
A popular Scottish tour is:
From Edinburgh: to travel up the east coast of Scotland, over the top (with the possibility of a visit to Orkney and/or Shetland), then down the west coast, visiting some of the Hebrides (eg Skye) and end up in Glasgow.
Enjoy your stay in Edinburgh and Spain when the time comes.

RR,

Thanks for the info. It's always a plus to have first-hand recommendations.

Very much looking forward to this trip. I've been in Aruba for two months, which is TOO MUCH SUN, if you can believe it. This is a desert island. Ready for some green scenery.
