It took us four days to get from Scotland to Germany. OK, so four days doesn’t really compare to the 20 years that it took for Odysseus to get home, but Odysseus never had to ride an overnight bus from Edinburgh to London. If he had, it is certain that at least one person would have been slain. Here is a rough sketch of our journey with details to be described in later posts.

This morning I heard some reporter on CNN bitching about how it took her two plane rides and two ferries to get to this island in Indonesia. Big deal! Try getting from Scotland to Germany sometime!
