The Day I Got Chased By A Rhino

“Don’t make eye contact, don't look, don't look! Okay run, RUN!” The three of us bolted, following the zig-zag pattern that our guide was doing to throw them off course. My camera bag bounced against my hip as I ran, my heart raced and the sweat started to drip down my face. The branches on [...]

Castles before the Causeway.

We left early from our little B&B in Loch Lomond with a mission to be in Stanraer by noon to catch the ferry over to Northern Ireland. Though of course, we had a do one last castle in Scotland and did a flying visit through Culzean Castle, which was absolutely magnificent. The entire property included [...]

Glencoe, you took my breath away..

Discovering St. Andrews..And the best Indian I’ve ever eaten..

Leaving Anstruther, we navigated through the foggy roads until we reached the town of St. Andrews. With no intention for a long stop, we just needed a coffee before continuing onto Aberdeen. However as we drove into St. Andrews and passed a huge old ruin of a church and graveyard, we pulled into to have [...]
