Driving this last stretch on the main land between Fort William and Mallaigh was timed to the minute. I had calculated at what moment the Jacobite train would pass the Glenfinnan Bridge. And we didn’t have spare time to wait for the next one, as our car ferry would not wait for us in Mallaigh.
Real hard climb… not. We took the gondola up. Found the Nevis Range Mountain Experience easily. We took the time to pass by the boys and ladies room. What a surprise when I got out of the little room.
Next stop on our all day boat trip: Fingal’s cave at Staffa Island. Another item on my bucket list. Check!
We booked a boat trip to Lunga and Staffa isles near the Isle of Mull. In order to understand my state of mind, I need to tell you the following.
This real first day of the trip – and not the arriving day which in my mind is always a half, non productive day – took some time and compromises.
We didn’t plan much time here in Edinburgh as a result of some compromises. The idea was to explore Victoria Street and the Royal mile and then go for sunset at Calton hill. Half way Victoria Street, the kids got hungry, or better were in need of sugar.
Before even getting on the plane to Edinburgh we got our doses of stress and annoyance.
After a long day of work, finally escaped the office. Some colleagues are contemplating to “just go to the restaurant of the hotel”. No way! We had no free time today, at least we make dinner a feast!
The older I am getting the more fond I am on my privacy. I am more conscious about myself. I have a sleep disorder and have 2 options: snore and stop breathing 48 times an hour, or sleep with a machine and mask that pushes air under pressure through my throat. Either way, embarrassing.
On March 22nd 2016, two terrorist attacks took place in Belgium. One in the entrance hall of the airport. One in Maalbeek metro stration. Guess the whole population is shocked, disgusted and angry.
