    Greg's Rocks

    November 8, 2019 in the United Kingdom ⋅ 🌙 1 °C

    All set to leave. Just waiting for the driver and we're away on a long weekend adventure to John O'Groats, 192 miles away.
    I made a video lol. Not as good as the One Take Wonder that is David, but I need to get some practice ha ha

    Home

    January 2 in the United Kingdom ⋅ 🌧 10 °C

    So sad, but also grateful to have arrived home, after two near misses. One particularly bad with an Aygo overtaking us head on into the path of ongoing traffic. Absolutely terrifying. If we hadn't have slammed on the brakes, none if us would be here. Ironically, we sat behind them for 35 miles after that!

    A great wee trip nonetheless and back to the diet tomorrow 🤦🏻‍♀️Can't wait for the next one!

    We're Home!

    November 12, 2019 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 9 °C

    Well, we arrived back home to find all of my snails and some of my tropical fish dead. I must have turned the heater off by mistake. Sad to be home now because we always have such a brilliant time!
    Here are the last few snaps of the trip!

    Highland Games

    June 1, 2019 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 11 °C

    Heute stehen die Highland Games im Fokus. Vorher noch einkaufen gehen, wollen ja nicht verhungern. Schöne Häuser, achtet besonders auf das was ihr in dem Fenster seht.

    Hill House

    August 8, 2017 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☀️ 17 °C

    It is simply not possible to capture the beauty of this house with 6 photos (which is all I can load with the free version of this travel blog site), but I recently discovered how to do collages! Hill House was absolutely stunning. The house was commissioned by Glasgow publisher Walter Blackie and completed by Macinktosh in 1902/1903. With his wife Margaret Macdonald, he designed both interior and exterior. Every detail contributes to the overall aesthetic, creating a sense of harmony. The mix of light and dark worked beautifully and there was a general air of tranquility. Every room was a work of art. The attention to detail was awe-inspiring. There were a couple of rooms where the owner had requested that Mackintosh incorporate his own, more traditional furniture. The contrast with Mackintosh's style was stark and highlighted his forward thinking. The gardens are also very beautiful, though it seems Mackintosh had little involvement in their design. Despite the popularity of this tourist attraction we managed to avoid major crowds, which added to a very memorable experience for us.Read more
