Killing time at the airport 

  I love travel that includes spending lots of time at airports. I have to admit I don’t mind it at all. I love airports. Something about them it’s really mystery. Those many different people spending hours together in one place without even notice it. Airport is the ultimate best place for people watching. That’sContinue reading “Killing time at the airport “

It’s not just me. It’s the city of Edinburgh

I had a customer tonight. A girl from Toronto, currently living in London and teaching in primary school. Before she left, she asked me: Are you walking in Edinburgh’s streets every day to get to work? I was thinking, there we go, what’s wrong with these streets?! So I replied, yes I do. Every day.Continue reading “It’s not just me. It’s the city of Edinburgh”

Pitlochry and The Enchanted Forest 

Pitlochry for me is the cutest and the most Scottish little town in Perthshire. It’s between Perth and Inverness, easy access by train from Edinburgh or Glasgow. When you arrive you instantly get this ‘wow this is Scotland! ‘ feeling. Lots of small shops, coffee houses, pubs all with pure Scottish interior. Most people comingContinue reading “Pitlochry and The Enchanted Forest “
