Camping & Castles: An Aberdeenshire Adventure

All throughout lockdown, I was jonesing for one type of trip in particular: a camping trip.

Photo Friday: Driving The Absolutely Epic Icefields Parkway In Canada

It took me a long, long time to go through all our photos from Canada when we got home in 2018. Six months, in fact. This is because we took over 120 photos of the Icefields Parkway ALONE. Not the lakes that we stopped at; just the mountains as we drove through this epic part… Continue reading Photo Friday: Driving The Absolutely Epic Icefields Parkway In Canada

A Day On Skye (Which Is Definitely Not Enough)

When we started planning our North Coast 500 trip, I knew we needed to make a detour over to Skye. After all, I've lived in Scotland (on and off) for 30 years... ...and had NEVER been there!! When people plan a trip to Scotland, it's as if there are only two destinations here: Edinburgh and… Continue reading A Day On Skye (Which Is Definitely Not Enough)

"I can't believe how many mountains there are in Scotland!" my friend squealed as we turned another corner to yet another amazing view. The North Coast 500 had blown both of us away - my friend, because she hadn't visited Scotland outside of Edinburgh and had no idea how beautiful it all is; and me,… Continue reading Photo Friday: 40 Amazing Views From The NC500 Road Trip In Scotland

Off-Beat Seattle: Trolls, Rockets And A RUBBER CHICKEN MUSEUM!

It has to be said that Seattle isn't my favourite city - which is why it may come as a surprise that I am writing a THIRD blog post about it (though with a title like that, I'm sure you can understand why). One thing I do really like about Seattle is its neighbourhoods -… Continue reading Off-Beat Seattle: Trolls, Rockets And A RUBBER CHICKEN MUSEUM!

Exploring The Bavarian Town Of Leavenworth… In WA, USA! (& Montana Adventures)

We didn't really have any plans between Yellowstone and Vancouver. It was mostly going to be a couple of days of just driving and stopping wherever we fancied. One place dropped onto my radar though, thanks to my friend Anirudh over at Beyond Our Horizons - the adorable little town of Leavenworth, not far outside… Continue reading Exploring The Bavarian Town Of Leavenworth… In WA, USA!
