Look what happened now...
Ready, Set, Jet!
Hope you are having a fantastic day!
Travel is such a bother right now, but luckily my trusty iPhone decided to unearth some memories today and found some lost footage of a visit to Inverness and Culloden. I made a very short video, enjoy!
Did I mention my buddies is a HUGE Outlander fan? Yep, she is. So while we were in Scotland I searched for a #Outlander themed tour for her. I was surprised at how wildly popular the show was...(I must really live in a cave, right? I had no idea.) The tours were booked up for 2 years in advance and cost? Well as much as well a trip to Scotland! We found a slightly cheaper one and lucked into a open spot. The only open spot for the entire MONTH!
This tour was based on historical parts of the novels and TV show, not movie sets or locations that were used in filming. A few of the places I had visited already, but was glad to return to.
It had been 7 years since I was last at the museum and it had been expanded to include more exhibits, a film and a cafe. I found out later there was no photos allowed, so enjoy my blurry iPhone photos, ok?
We then went back outside to walk around the moor.
The site is approx 4,000 years old and not far from the Battlefield.

A lot more happened and we saw a lot more stuff, but thats about all the pictures I can sort for today. We had a really nice time, with a great guide and a really fun tour. We stayed another few days in Inverness (more posts on that adventure soon.)
See you at the airport~
I'm not gonna lie, July sucked ass. It was not a good month. I hope it was better for you than it was here. July was busy, like a blur, a ugly, off center blur that left me feeling battered and bruised. So thanks GOD it's over. Maybe now things will slow down and get back into balance. "Goodbye July, see ya! and wouldn't want to be ya!" #FML
That said, here are the top most clicked on posts for July on this website:
#1. Weekend in Scotland Part #1
51 +pictures of getting to Glasgow & a bit of the stuff we saw there. Really a good trip. The weather was dark and it rained, some of the pictures are in HD and some are gray. Sorry/not sorry.
#2. Adventures in UK IKEA
Post from 6/28/15 trip to Newcastle Ikea store. 15+pictures, mostly just an average day.
#3. Weekend in Scotland Part #2
Most Recent post, the 2nd part of the Glasgow trip and still over 64 pictures!! and I'm not done with the trip post, yet! Yikes, I need to get those Scotland pictures sorted in some kinda order!
#4. Weekend in Wilshire, UK
Older post from 12/09/14 - but it is listed on the front of the webpage. I really need to update those, don't I? Lord. This was a fun trip to Wiltshire with 32 pictures of the cold and colorful life of the small village we visited.
All these post are form the United Kingdom, most of them are really photo heavy. Should I pay attention to that fact? Do you actually like picture overload as much as me? I think I only did 6 or 7 posts for the whole month of July. #FAIL
BUT two of which were really quite good and not listed above. I actually WROTE ABOUT TRAVEL here and the other post I quite enjoyed was the Organic Flour Mill post. We revisited the Mill/Cafe again in late July with my friend from NOLA, but most of the pictures of the colorful, charming place are in this post HERE. If you want to check it out.
Once again I want to say THANK YOU for reading my silly little blog. I'm not sure why you do, but your comments and emails make me smile and laugh on some days when I really need it. Thanks for sharing your travel adventures with me and looking at my crazy life.
See you at the airport-
Warning: Another Picture heavy Post
For part 1 of the Scotland weekend click here, for MORE SCOTLAND from another trip HERE.
Our Inverness Trip will be a whole other post, lol. So to recap: My friend from New Orleans (USA) came to a conference in England & then stayed 2+ weeks with me. We went adventuring (mostly in Scotland) and knocked some things off her bucket list. And we took about a million photos, some of which are here. This post focuses on day 2 of being in Glasgow, Scotland.
*WARNING PICTURE HEAVY TRAVEL POST*
Last Friday we took the train from Penrith, Cumbria to Glasgow, Scotland. I have not been to Scotland (other than just over the line) in approx. 6 years. We elected to make 2 or 3 small trips over the rest of July, as I have company from New Orleans in town. She has never been to Scotland, but has seen Ireland and England before, so she understands how just a few miles can be a BIG change in scenery and city life.
I may complain about all the rain and colder temps here, but I do love all the flowers!
Next post on the cathedral and other places we went.
See you at the airport!
