What did he marvel at in particular? Can you recall his favourite bits?

It's hard to say because he is not very demonstrative because he spent many years in monastery. However, after returning he has told many people all about the trip. He talks about so many aspects of the trip.

If this is his first time overseas - or to Europe, I suggest he will be so excited to be in a totally different country that what we think he might find mundane will actually have far more attraction for him. And he will be taking a gazillion photos and sending them daily back to his friends.

It is indeed his first time anywhere that doesn't border Thailand.

And as it turned out in fact the long range forecast was thankfully way wrong. We got a week and a half of warm, sunny, dry days mostly getting 20C+ followed by four days of almost constant rain.

I've waved him goodbye today and he declared the trip a great success. Fair to say it didn't go exactly as I had imagined, but for me it was all about what he wanted for the duration of his stay even if it drove me bonkers at times. He loved it and that's really all that matters.

Scotland's notoriously short summer obviously arrived early this year :o :o
