    Ganz im Norden von Schottland

    July 21, 2017 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☀️ 18 °C

    Inzwischen sind wir am nördlichsten Punkt unserer Reise angekommen. Lange, einsame Sandstrände und strahlend blauer Himmel prägen unser momentanes Bild, ein Traum!
    Ab morgen geht es dann leider langsam wieder Richtung Süden... Aber wir haben ja noch eine gute Woche vor uns :-)

    Our northernmost destination. We felt we were standing at the top of the world, and truly we almost were. Standing on the beach we were looking directly out to the arctic circle. Almost by accident we discovered a chocolatier offering the "world's best hot chocolate." I think Gordon agreed.

    Speaking of the arctic circle, even though it is not solstice yet, we think it does not get dark up here. Because it is so close to the circle, there is a glow that lasts hours both after sunset and before sunrise. The darkest we've seen has been around 2:30 when there was a faint pre-dawn glow. The Scots call this phenomenon the gloaming.
