I totally get the tired of travel and planes thing. I’ve travelled extensively the past few years and the thought of getting on planes … bleh! I can’t stand the idea nowadays! But then I get to where I’m going and fall in love with it all over again. 

Scotland is breaktaking. I’ve been once (it’s where FH proposed) and can’t wait to go back. Depending on the time of year you’re going, there’s so much to do! 

If travel is getting to you, can you do something more expensive closer to home? 

That way you can still spoil yourself but don’t have to travel as far?

Scotland.  Hands down.   Yes,  you can have a ring,  but with a trip to Scotland, you both can have a life long memory together.   I’ll be making the same trip in September.

It sounds like you’re not really into either option.  What about trying to figure out something completely different along with your SO?  For the record, though, my vote would be Scotland – I’d rather have an experience and a memory than a ring, especially if it’s similar to something you already have and you mentioned trying to get rid of stuff rather than accumulate more.  But I get being tired of travelling, too.  What about a couples spa getaway?  That might be relaxing and you wouldn’t have to travel far, since you’re tired of travelling.

Foreverblonde345:  I’ve been to Edinburgh and done the Highlands, and let me tell you, it was worth it. between the two of us, my Fiance and I easily rack up over 100k miles a year (SEA to BWI x4, ARN and CPH this summer, California once, Philly once, DC once, and possibly also NZ), and I would be 100% willing to pick up and head back any. given. day.

and, if you’re travel-weary, you’ll be happy to hear that Edinburgh is a super walkable city. A million and one things to do in a VERY compact space.

as for the Highlands, I fully reccommend Rabbie’s tours.

I don’t understand why this is even a question. It sounds like you don’t even really like the ring. Why would you spend so much money on a ring you’re not even sure about?

Whilst Scotland would be wonderful to visit it sounds like you’re not that excited about the prospect of more long distance travel this year. 

I think you need to come up with some other options. If you want a ring but haven’t been able to find one you like why don’t you look into having one custom made. 

If you want to go on a trip why not look to have a relaxing break somewhere much closer to home.

There has got to be a hook to get you into enjoying scotch. Nobody just likes it, first off.tha is part of the charm, it’s rough around the edges and gets sweet if you drink enough to kill all the rest of your tastebuds. (Some would say it’s the perfect metaphor for the relationship between Scotland and England?) I always hated it, but the more I’ve tried it the more I like it. I also watched a movie a couple years ago with Fiance where scotch played a major role – “the angel’s share.” Once you get past the first half (which is pretty brutal in parts) there are some really quirky, funny wonderful moments around a guy who is a criminal with a heart of gold, and his newfound love of scotch.
