|1. Passport||Plan ahead, it took 6 weeks to get my passport. You will need 2 professional passport photos and a certified copy of your birth certificate. You do not need a visa to travel to Scotland|
|2.Int'l Drivers Permit:||recognized
worldwide as a valuable document
identifying you as a properly licensed resident of the US .
|3. Airline Tickets||I shopped around and no one came close to the price I got from www.discountairfare.com|
|4. Lodging:|| I
chose a self catering cottage in Lanark. It has washer, dryer, ironing facilities. It is centrally located in the area I plan to
visit. I decided to stay in one place the whole 2 weeks that way I am not worrying about check in / check out times. I can also take
over night jaunts without dragging everything with me.
|5. Medicines:||I take several prescription meds and have found some useful tips on line. Carry your meds with you; do not trust them to check- in. Keep them in the original containers. I made 2 business card sized lists of my meds and the dosage on one side and the generic equivalents on the other. I have a copy of this in my med bag and my purse.|
|6. Phoning Home||When I called my phone company about phone cards, I was fortunate enough to get a rep. who had traveled to Scotland. He told me that it was cheaper to buy pre-paid phone cards in Scotland. He even gave me directions to the place to buy them at the Glasgow Airport. He said the cards were available at lots of places.|
