As promised, here is a post dedicated to the few adventures we've taken recently outside of Glasgow. We also took a trip to the amazing Cairngorms National Park last April, so you may see my post on that here. Firstly, the Scottish countryside is completely full of three things: 1) great natural beauty, 2) impressive … Continue reading Scottish adventures
This is quite a nice city! Having had several weeks to explore now, I still have yet to do most of the touristy things. It's a very large, yet very walkable city.

I found a cheap and direct Transavia flight to Tel Aviv from Lyon, so why not! It … Continue reading Lyon on a sunny afternoon
When trying to come up with a clever title for this post about my trip to Scotland, I thought of this "Great Scott" business, but I wasn't 100% sure what it actually means. So I asked the internet. I guess it is appropriate as a title here. The very best part about this particular trip … Continue reading Great Scott!
