I know what you mean David.
When I moved to the US the exchange rate was around 1.46 $/GBP now it is
hanging around 1.87.Really kills us when we go there 3-4 times a year.
I also have a Continental One pass which is relatively useless on
International flights and that is at the gold level. No upgrades are aloud

gave the impression
that it was all like this not a small part.
Paula and I roamed Scotland for 2 weeks summer before last and we never felt
threatened or observed any negatives. It is a lovely country with lovely
people. We did stay away from the larger burghs, such as Edinburough and
Aberdeen, where I am sure we would have experienced a different sort of
culture, but we HAVE spent time in London and Edinburgh previously without
difficulty other than being in larger cities with their inherent problems.
We are anxious to return--we were looking forward to going again this summer
but the current administration's economy has the dollar dipping so low that
the rate of exchange is horrible. Plus the airlines are playing games with
frequent flyer miles.
