    Home comforts in Scotland

    February 13, 2017 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 41 °F

    After 26.5 hours of travelling we arrived safely in Troon, Scotland, at teatime on Saturday. It was lovely to feel a breath of icy cold air when we stepped off the plane in Amsterdam! The relative lack of trees in Britain compared to Costa Rica was striking too... Returning via UK before the next leg of our travels made the flights nearly £2k cheaper and has enabled us to visit Laura's family too. Backtracking like this seemed daft when we were planning our travels but we are all enjoying a couple of days of home comforts - comfy bed, home-cooked food, the space of a house and most of all the much-needed washing machine! Yesterday we want for a walk in the woods and we were all a bit chilly to say the least! Seeing a blanket of snowdrops made up for it though. Species count in Troon - birds 4 (crow, herring gull, starling, oystercatcher), mammals 1 (Laura's Mum's dog, Toffee)! Oh, and the gaudy model parrot we saw in the fairy garden!!! Today Solana got to spend time with her cousins, Finlay and Emma, which she loved.

    Things we've particularly appreciated being back here are good cups of tea, "normal" food, clean clothes, not having to plaster ourselves in sunscreen & DEET, not having to calculate money conversions in the 1000s and having clean feet! Tonight's task is to finish the re-packing, ready for our 2 long flights to Hanoi via Dubai....

    After a long day of trips and sigthseeing we headed into town to find a nice place to eat and stumbled across the "The West Kirk" restaurant, its a bar and restaurant in an old church!
    The food was amazing! Huge and filling and the drinks went down even better! Two pints of berry cider and i was well ready for bed!Read more

    Robbie Burns and Brigadoon

    August 29, 2015 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 63 °F

    At 2:15 pm we ended our tour of Robbie burns birthplace. At 2:30 photographed Cross Raguel Abbey just south of Maybole. I was very much aware of the fact that just east of us, behind some hills lay Galloway National Park. I yearned to know whether my ancestors had been in this place, why they left, and what kinds of lives they lived.Read more

    July 25, 2016 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    Lundi, 25 juillet 2016
    Notre nuit était fraîche et arrosée mais calme avec comme seul bruit nos voisins: 4 canards dans leur étang. C'était notre dernière étape en Angleterre; à Gretna Green nous entrons en Ecosse. Nous passons Dumfries, la ville du poète Robert Burns et faisons nos courses à Castle Douglas. Nous longeons le Loch Ken et cherchons une place au bord de l'eau pour pic-niquer, mais 15° c'est un peu juste. Nous continuons notre route en direction d'Ayr et traversons de superbes paysages qui ressemblent un peu à nos paturages du Jura vaudois. Ce qui change: ce sont des moutons qui broutent au lieu des bovins. Nous passons un col (250m) et testons pour la première fois une route étroite qui ne permet de croiser qu'à certains endroits. Nous sommes installés au camping de Culzean Castle. La visite du château sera pour demain, car les monuments historiques ferment tôt ici.Read more

    The Ranch - Maybole

    September 11, 2016 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    A new spot for the night. We move from the Highlands more to the southern part of Scotland. Gale force winds but campers still going strong with the bbq behind a wind screen. Sometimes we hardly could walk. Very rough and stormy night
