Glencoe Hikes, Glenfinnan Bridges & Scottish Castles

A few months ago, my friend and I set off on a week-long adventure around Scotland. My friend had wanted to do the North Coast 500 road trip; and being that she had never been to Scotland outside of Edinburgh, I wanted to make sure we hit up some of the highlights of my beautiful… Continue reading Glencoe Hikes, Glenfinnan Bridges & Scottish Castles

2019: My Year In Review

2019 has been all about the next huge step of our lives. It's been about accepting the end of long-term travel adventures and embracing the new adventure of finding our forever home.

Scotland Road Trip Days 4 & 5: Finding Nessie, Inverness, Castles & Floods

I've got to be honest with you right now: I've always hated the Loch Ness monster. I don't know if it's because I kind of grew up with it, knowing that all these tourists come to see something that isn't even there, and it's all lost its novelty.

Scotland Road Trip Day 3: Glencoe to Loch Ness Via The Hogwarts Express

Alright, I'm seriously lagging behind on these Scotland road trip posts, aren't I?! I promise to catch up before I go to Venice in a few days - it'll be the first time I've travelled abroad in over a year, which is absolutely ridiculous. Really living up to your name there, Clazz.
