The nautical nomad…

In this latest instalment of our occasional series, iScot Magazine reader Bob Costello shares part of his travel diary, reflecting on the challenges, and triumphs, of a man of a certain age holidaying solo…
by Bob Costello

When we last heard from Bob, he was enjoying a brief pitstop in Shetland while returning from a trip to Iceland. Soon enough, it was time for his next adventure…

So, OFF AGAIN on another wee jaunt, this time to New York, the Big Apple, and a 2-day stay before boarding the cruise ship Norwegian Escape - very aptly named as, for a wee while, I will be escaping the madness that is Brexit back home! Despite the ship’s name, the cruise is actually down to the Caribbean… Anyway, my journey started just after 4am with a brisk 2-mile walk to catch the bus from Dundee city centre to take me to Edinburgh Airport. This is a great new service run by National Express, and the best part of it was that I used my Scottish Government travel card meaning that all it cost me was a £1 booking fee!
