CHIHUAHUA CAFE | EDINBURGH | WEEKEND WANDERING

Usually I love the train journey up to Edinburgh - its about 5.5 hours long but it gives me time to write, read and watch tv in comfortable, warm seats. Usually moments when I get to do these things are slotted in in between stressful ones and are therefore very rarely dedicated just to this; … Continue reading CHIHUAHUA CAFE | EDINBURGH | WEEKEND WANDERING

CHEERS 2015

Happy New Year ('s Eve)! We've already talked about the highs and the lows in the last couple of days, so I thought today might be a good day to show you via our brand new YouTube channel.

BEST TRAVEL MOMENTS 2015

After yesterday's post you might be wondering if pessimism has got the better of us. Thankfully, it's quite the opposite; 2015 has been pretty damn good to our little circle. To prove it we got together to discuss the BEST moments in our 2015 travels: Hamilton When I was in a small village in the Austrian alps, … Continue reading BEST TRAVEL MOMENTS 2015

END OF THE ROAD | EDINBURGH | SCOTTISH ROAD TRIP

Our two final nights were spent in the unique and charming city of Edinburgh.    I'd always wanted to go and in all honesty had no idea how to go about planning our time there. The rest of our road trip in Scotland was mostly spent in rural areas, so I knew a city would … Continue reading END OF THE ROAD | EDINBURGH | SCOTTISH ROAD TRIP

NORTHERN LIGHTS | JOHN O’GROATS | SCOTTISH ROAD TRIP

In an earlier blog post, I mentioned my bucket list... Our time at John O'Groats managed to tick off two wishes. Not bad going for a town with a population of only about 300. The drive from Skye was a looonggg one. I think it took about 7/8 hours? There is a slightly shorter route, … Continue reading NORTHERN LIGHTS | JOHN O’GROATS | SCOTTISH ROAD TRIP

FAIRY POOLS | ISLE OF SKYE | SCOTTISH ROAD TRIP

We woke up in Invergarry to yet another beautiful day. I haven't actually mentioned it, but my god we were lucky with the weather. The hike at Glen Nevis was another day of clear blue skies and bright sunshine, and after what we'd been repeatedly told, ("It always rains in Fort William") we figured it … Continue reading FAIRY POOLS | ISLE OF SKYE | SCOTTISH ROAD TRIP

HIKING IN THE HIGHLANDS | GLEN NEVIS | SCOTTISH ROAD TRIP

Isn't alliteration amazing. Anyway, after our late night escapades in Galloway, we were glad to be out on the open road and on our way to the good old fashioned great outdoors. My Mum loves waterfalls, so we decided our next stop on the trip would be Glen Nevis, to walk up to Steall Falls. It takes … Continue reading HIKING IN THE HIGHLANDS | GLEN NEVIS | SCOTTISH ROAD TRIP
