My first trip (as far as I can remember) was to Sweden and Scotland in the early eighties. Me and my family went to Gothenburg, Sweden to see some relatives and from there we went to Newcastle, England by boat. Our final destination was Edinburgh, Scotland where we stayed at my aunt's, who lived there (and still does). Unfortunately I don't remember much about this trip, because I was only about 6 yrs old at the time. I made a few more trips to Edinburgh in 1980's and 1990's.
