Scotland 6: Day 26

03.24.18 | Portree Hotel, Portree, Scotland | 21:35 This morning I had to be up rather early, in order to check out of the hostel and catch the bus to my next destination. I walked into the bus station and purchased a steak pie and a Dr. Pepper. This would have to be a well-balanced... Continue Reading →

Scotland 6: Day 25

03.23.18 | Inverness Hostel | 23:20 Over the years, one of my Inverness traditions has been to walk to Loch Ness. If my memory serves me correct, it’s about 6 miles from the hostel in Inverness to the northernmost end of the Loch. On previous trips, I’ve been able to get some awesome pictures on...

Scotland 6: Day 24

03.22.18 | Inverness Hostel | 11:19 My hostel mate here in Inverness is amazingly lazy. I’m not sure what his deal is- here’s what I do know so far. He’s from Italy, and he stays in bed all day. I plan on getting to the bottom of this real soon. Maybe he’s on his own... Continue Reading →

Scotland 6: Day 23

03.21.18 | Thurso, Scotland | 08:21 Last night my roommate was a guy called Josh, who is from Texas. I asked him if he knows my sister Melanie, and he doesn’t. Come to think of it, I’m not even sure how close he lives to her. Josh has brought a big surfboard. He loves to... Continue Reading →

Scotland 5: Day 28 03.28.16 | Inverness Hostel | 21:36 We’ll call today a “maintenance day”. It was time to get another haircut (it was such a great experience in Oban, that I needed a repeat performance). I found a barber shop in a nearby Victorian marketplace. He did an okay job. Not as good... Continue Reading →

Scotland 5: Day 27

03.27.16 | Inverness Hostel | 21:41 Warning- this post gets a tiny bit religious. Read on! Today was Easter Sunday- I celebrated by going to church. The service was quite good, with an impressive musical number by all the men in the congregation. I think about 13 guys were standing in the small choir seating... Continue Reading →

Scotland 5: Day 26 03.26.16 | Inverness Hostel | 21:19 I’m walking by the river ness on a stretch of the street called Ness Walk, actually. I glance over and see this glass building called Eden Court. It looks interesting so I walk up to it to find out what it is. Turns out this is... Continue Reading →

Scotland 5: Day 25

03.25.16 | Fort Augustus, Scotland | 07:38 I’m sitting in my bed, hoping that the ‘clacking’ of my keyboard doesn’t wake my two hostel roommates. One is a girl from Florida who is currently attending University in Dublin, Ireland. She told me that she has a few days off, so she’s traveling through Scotland with... 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 4: Day 26

Inverness > Thurso | 10:53 I just had to say goodbye to Inverness. I love this place, but it’s time to see some more of Scotland. I’m excited to go north. My destination is Thurso, which is almost as far north as you can go while staying on the mainland. Not sure what there is... Continue Reading →
