I'm going overseas for the first time to Ireland/Scotland. I'm just wondering if anyone who has been there can offer me some advice on flying internationally, culture shock and just generally what to expect. PLEASE HELP!!! Thank you.

Think I can help as I am Scottish! Don't worry a bit about culture shock; in fact, you'll probably notice a lot of similarities between Canada and both Scotland and Ireland in terms of heritage and culture. It's not a great exchange rate between Canadian dollars and pounds/euros right now, so I think your biggest shock will be prices. That aside, you'll enjoy the hospitality and the great variety of things to see and do. Fairly long flight for you (I'm assuming through Toronto), so try get some sleep on the overnight flight and then avoid napping your first day in-country, opting instead for an early night so you can hit the ground running and ward off the worst effects of jet lag. Other stuff? Plan for rainy, overcast weather during at least some of your trip, so pack accordingly. Pack comfortable shoes, too, as you'll probably be doing plenty of walking and/or riding public transport.
