Reykjavik – Day 3

Today was probably the highlight of the trip for me – the blue lagoon. As we were waiting for the bus to pick us up it was spitting with rain, the first bad weather we’d had. However, if it was going to rain, I’d rather it did it while we were soaking wet and swimming […]

Reykjavik – Day 2

When I looked out the balcony window this morning everything was blue. It turns out that Iceland is actually magical. With recharged camera batteries we headed out to explore. The plan was to go straight to the shops, but down a side street I glimpsed a mountain and the sea. It was decided instantly that […]

Reykjavik – Day 1

Taxi to the station, train to Glasgow, shuttlebus to Glasgow airport, plane to Keflavik and shuttlebus to Laugavegur, Reyjavik. The journey to Keflavik airport was far quicker than I imagined – less than three hours from Glasgow. As soon as we stepped off the plane we were hit by a gust of Icelandic wind, but […]

Hound at the Beach

St Andrews in Fife, Scotland is one of my dog’s favourite places on Earth. She knows where she is as soon as we enter the car park, and she’s got her paws up on the window, whining with excitement. We can’t park the car quick enough. Once on the lead, she does her alarmingly good […]

In the Spirit of Summer

April is here, and I am beginning to overlook the daunting hurdle of A Level exams and peer at the distant summer holidays. My mind wandered back to last summer, when I went to Majorca with a friend I’ve known for fourteen years. They say you are friends for life after seven years, so it looks […]

European Adventure

This post was inspired by a Daily Prompt from 2013 – Come Fly with Me: Share a story about the furthest you’ve ever traveled from home. I took a look at current daily posts but this one was the first to get me thinking. The furthest I have travelled from home is Samos, Greece. This […]
