What I Did (I know, So Extravegant)

in Entertaining nonsense and profound thought


So the trip – you know the one, Scotland and Ireland in the summer of 2017 – was filling up with people who weren’t in my group. It was a sad, sad thing for me, because, like me, many people couldn’t get their schedule together a year in advance. So, I got an idea and called the travel company and asked for my own departure date. We are now leaving July 9, a week earlier that originally planned.

Yes, a whole bus just for people who want to go on a trip with an author researching a new series, readers, writers and other fun-loving folk. And that means something wonderful for three more potential travelers  who would like to go, but maybe can’t afford it. I’ve reserved a free spot for my Niece, Mary, but that still leaves three more slots to fill…

What do you have to do to get a free trip? Sign up six other travelers. That’s all. Find six people who will travel full fare, and you go free. And the more who sign up the less expensive it gets for the paying travelers…

What do you have to lose? Contact me (kate@kategeorge.com) and I’ll assign free spots on a first come basis.

Why would anyone want to go? Well there’s the itinerary, Discussions about books, plotting along with tea, or cocktails and at least one internet celebrity. (I have to ask her if I can use her name before I say who it is…)  You can pub hop, meet the locals and see historical stuff. There will be Coos, and shaggy ponies, as well as Men in Kilts. Tea houses, fish and chips, and Irish Lads, And I know from my trip to Scotland in November that the tour guides are fabulous and fun.

What are you waiting for? You want to come? Contact me.  And if you just want to sign up and not bother with recruiting other travelers? Click this:  http://kategeorge.grouptoursite.com/

Hey hey hey that is my homeland your enjoying 😉
A native Glaswegian living in New England VT/MA.
I do understand the fascination and aye those men in kilts, kilt hose and sturdy boots make all the difference.
I look forward to reading your return post.

The Coos are so worth it and the guide in Edinburgh who wears “troosers” in tartan and matching waistcoat. But it will be summer so perhaps not! Great trip. Anyone with roots here should go.
