With the cruise starting in Edinburgh, we wanted to spend some time in the Scottish capital before the cruise. Working backwards from our cruise departing on July 28 we decided that we’d leave Canada on July 24 so that we would arrive in Edinburgh on July 25 to spend 3 nights there before heading to the cruise. We were able to upgrade our flight to Executive First on Air Canada so it made the airport check in and wait in the lounge a relaxing experience ahead of the flight. Linda got her first experience in the current angled pod-like cubicle seats that Air Canada uses in Executive First. We toasted the start of the trip with a glass of sparking wine before the departure while other passengers continued to board the plane. It was a lovely feeling of expectation of what was ahead in the next few weeks. We flew to Edinburgh via London and the transfer turned out much better than we were expecting and we made it to Edinburgh before noon on the 25th.
