I’ve been traveling and living so fully (most of that time). In no particular order, here are just a few things I’ve done in the past nine weeks instead of posting blogs, in pictures:
Sea Kayaking by the Isle of Skye
I’ve stood in the footsteps of Scottish Kings in Kilmartin.
This is Dunadd, an Iron Age hill fort where several kings stood in a coronation celebration until at least the 8th or 9th centuries. This is the Footprint of Fealty, where they actually stood to look over their kingdom. There are Pictish symbols and Ogham writing on this rock as well, so I’m also following the footsteps of Rowan.
Saw the magical puffins on the Isle of Staffa…and time stood still.
Took a very quick dip in the icy waters of the Fairy Pools on Skye.
IT WAS COLD.
Cantered along the hills and lakes of the Isle of Mull and Loch Lomond. Climbed Ben Lomond and beheld the glory of Glencoe. Hiked through the heather. Visited the Glenfinnan Viaduct and Loch Sheil (Black Lake behind Hogwarts). Beheld the great Kelpies of Falkirk. Seen some of the most glorious places on earth.
Had the privilege of seeing Ralph Fiennes as Richard III in the West End.
I’ve been to Platform 9 3/4 at King’s Cross and walked through the Great Hall of Hogwarts. Drank Butterbeer and even ate some Butterbeer Ice Cream (which is the greatest thing ever!)
