So my friend Joe and I have 10 days to have fun. I was thinking about a trip around the UK. Leave London and go up to Scottland, then over to Ireland and around, and then back to London.

I'm sure I'm not the first one to try this so I was just wondering if 10 days will get the job done, and what are the "must see's" of the trip.

New (awesome) job, so the RTW trip will have to wait.

Adventure is my middle name.

The Hebrides! The Hebrides! You must get there when you're up in Scotland. My favorite island was Mull, followed by Skye.

The Hebrides indeed! And Mull is quite underrated. Tobermoray is a nice little (little) town. And the best thing about Scotland? Hostels absolutely f*ing everywhere. Now, I'm going to be completely opinionated and say that if there's a time crunch, throw London out the window and go straight to Edinburgh!! Still one of my favorite places ever!! And about Ireland, don't assume Dublin is the happening place to be, I'd head straight out west to Dingle. Of course, I vote for spending the whole 10 days in Scotland. I reeeeeally don't think you would regret it. Edinburgh kicks ass.

But whatever you do please please please don't feel obligated to visit Stonehenge.
