If there is a heaven on earth, I think I found it.
I really can’t believe I have internet access right now. The day has been kind of a whirlwind of TRAVEL and STUFF. The two big words in my vocabulary. I took a 12.5 hour bus ride through the night to Edinburgh, where I sprinted to my tour group only to arrive early enough to grab a hot chocolate and spruce up. WHOO. Then I met this girl named Alex and we hung out seeing castles and glens and OH MY GOD. Scotland has the most gorgeous landscape I have ever seen. The Highlands? God yes.
I must be a freaking madwoman. I’d like to informally thank Grammie for the advance on my Christmas gift, which is being used for this!
So because I have no class on Friday, I have booked the big trip of my stay. Who knew it would end up being in Skye High, of all places?
I will be going through some fierce bus travel to do it, but my upcoming three-day weekend will take me back up to Edinburgh and on to:
Stirling (William Wallace country)
Fort Augustus and Loch Ness
The beautiful Isle of Skye
And south past Pitlochry, Dunkeld and Perth
This is Lindsey officially saying that Paris, Stockholm, and Brüges will have to wait for another time.
Just goes to show that Christmas can come early to those who can’t wait (and are half-willing to pay dearly for it).
So, SCOTLAND. Seriously the sexiest and probably most confusing accents I have encountered so far on my journeys. Anyways, here’s a rundown of my fabulous trip to the far (but not far enough) north of the UK with Melissa and her awesome friend Alison.
En route to Edinburgh ❤ No new posts until Monday? Or earliest Sunday night. Cheers.
