Scotland 6: Day 16 03.14.18 | Lerwick Hostel | 17:12 Lerwick is a great little city! One that I’m happy to be visiting for a second time. I walked to the hostel, and after waiting a few minutes, a girl called Calli joined me. We sat for awhile and had a wee chat. Calli is... Continue Reading →

Scotland 6: Day 15

03.13.18 | Aberdeen > Lerwick | 18:27 I'm sitting in the dining room of a northbound ferry. It has been seven years since my first (and only) time doing this. It's time for Shetland! A few days ago, my old friend Tia sent me a message telling me that her son is currently serving as... Continue Reading →

Scotland 6: Day 14 03.12.18 | Aberdeen Hostel | 21:38 My hostel here in Aberdeen is creepy but beautiful. It’s an older brownstone building, and they have me all the way up on the fourth floor. They call it the third floor, however, because in the U.K., the ground floor is the bottom. So the... Continue Reading →

Scotland 5: Day 22 03.22.16 | Aberdeen > Inverness Train | 09:22 I checked out of the hostel in Aberdeen just after 06:30 to get to an early train. I found breakfast at the train station: The Pumpkin Cafe. A breakfast sandwich that had been sitting in a cooler. I could taste that it hadn’t been... Continue Reading →

Scotland 5: Day 21 03.21.16 | Aberdeen Hostel | 20:24 Once again it’s laundry day. I’m next in line to use the washer and dryer, so I’ve set up my little “camp” right here in the laundry room. Two people have brought their clothes in and both of them have been turned away, as I’m... Continue Reading →

Scotland 5: Day 20

03.20.16 | Aberdeen, Scotland | 20:26 On Sundays, like today, I try to do things a bit differently. I left the hostel this morning at about 09:00 and walked to church. It wasn't too long of a walk, maybe 3 miles or so. The congregation made me feel very welcome. Everybody was too kind! I... Continue Reading →

Scotland 5: Day 19 03.19.16 | Aberdeen Hostel | 21:23 Sadly I don’t have any pictures to share with you on this post. This is because I haven’t taken the time to explore as of yet. I did make it on the train safely to Aberdeen, however. My hostel is located a few miles west... Continue Reading →

Today is a crashpad day. Aft working for six days in a row, the F.A.A. requires a flight attendant to take at least 24 hours off. I have, however, just finished working eight days in a row. This is possible because after getting back early on the sixth day, there was a 24-hour break, and... Continue Reading →

Scotland 4: Day 23 4.19.11 | Aberdeen > Inverness | 11:03 I don’t think that I need to point out that last night’s sleep was horrible. I didn't splurge for a cabin this time- they gave me a seat, much like a seat on an airplane, but it was a litter wider- that is unless... Continue Reading →

Scotland 4: Day 15 4.11.11 | Aberdeen Starbucks | 08:46 I have officially, unofficially checked out of my Aberdeen hostel. The official part is because I have cleaned out my room, dropped off my sheets and pillowcase, left the room and turned in my key. The unofficial part is because they’re letting me leave my...
