Later today we are off to Edinburgh to see Niall's mum and his sister whose birthday it is on Friday.
Sadly our mode of travel will not be as romantic or stylish as a train in the glory days of rail travel which this poster advertised. Instead we will be taking the overnight car ferry from Ouistreham to Portsmouth and then driving up.
Currently the National Museum of Scotland is holding an exhibition entitled 'See Scotland by Train' of railway posters like this, and hopefully we'll have a chance to go and see it.
Therefore, next posts will probably take a departure from our usual lives here in France and have a Scottish flavour!
