Working Mom – Travel Dreams is finally traveling again! This is a long awaited solo trip to the UK! I had a bit of drama with the airline going on strike and my flight getting canceled, so I had to scramble to find another flight only to have them resolve the issue and have my flight be back on so I had to cancel my replacement flight. Then they went on strike anyway and I booked myself another replacement flight just incase and it’s a good thing I did because I needed it when my flight got canceled 3 hours before take off. But all that is sorted out and I finally made my way to the UK!
I’m currently in Edinburgh, Scotland. It is probably one of the prettiest cities I have seen. But then again, I love old buildings. The only probables I seem to be running into here is that they are currently filming Fast and Furious 9 here and by here I mean at the corner of the street where I’m staying. Before I knew what was going on there were people taking photos of a few cars when I was trying to get lunch. Then in the evening I walked back to my flat a different way and the street was closed so I had to go all the way back around. After that I looked to see what was going on. They are filming here all month. But the bulk of what they are doing is all within 1 mile of where I’m staying and all their movie stuff (trailers, equipment, dressing rooms, food service etc) are parked at the end of the street. I was not planning on that and I would not complain if I ran into any of the stars. But I would probably be pretty embarrassed if I ended up in the background of one of the shots in the movie all red faced and sweaty from hiking up the hill to get to my flat.
Anyway, today was a rainy day here in Scotland. Beautiful in Edinburgh but pouring down rain in the highlands where I spent my day. Tomorrow is a new day and that day takes me to a new place. I’m just planning to leave the flat early because while walking home I saw a notice that my street is closed tomorrow morning for filming. The last thing I want to do is get ran over by a chase scene crossing the street to get to the bus.
