Paul & Kirsten Fischler

Hi Cam,

Just wanted to drop you a line to let you know how much we appreciated your (and Bill’s) services. I am not sure that “services” is the best term to use to describe the hospitality that you extended to us. You made us feel welcomed to Edinburgh and Scotland.

Your pre-trip assistance was worth the price of admittance from the reservation at the Witchery to getting us tickets to the Tattoo. Speaking of which, I am still in awe at how you met us inside the arena. The Tattoo was one of the hi-lights of our visit. I am a big fan of the pipes and drums; it just gives me goose bumps.

Our visit to Edinburgh was one of the best parts of our vacation and we will forever remember the visit. In fact, Edinburgh is one of the few cities that we would like to return. We just scratched the surface. I would have liked to have seen Edinburgh Castle, however, with the way my knees were that would not have been a fun walk.

Kirsten and I just loved Scotland. For me one of my favorite sites was seeing Fort George. The passengers (200) on our cruise ship were treated to a personalized tour of the museum, armory, chapel, and ramparts. (We learned that the Black Watch was stationed there.) This was followed by a reception with entertainment provided by a youth pipe and drum band and some traditional Scottish dancing by five lovely young ladies. The volunteers who took us on the tour were volunteers that, I assume, were associated with the fort. Everyone was so nice and gracious; what a wonderful time we had.

Cam, this was the best trip that we have taken so far and it got off to a wonderful start thanks to you and Bill. Please give Bill our best next time you see him. Bill was such a fine gentleman.

I would like to give you a six star rating. Just let me know the site to use.

And finally, should you ever return to Seattle please let me know; I would like very much to return the hospitality that you showed Kirsten and me.

Your friends,

Paul and Kirsten
