2016 started off in one way, turned left, got flipped upside down, then messed up in the blender. Here’s how it all came out in the end:
England. Scotland. Northern Ireland. Even Gibraltar. I prefer to categorize these countries separately, and have had many adventures in each of them. Check out the posts from these adventures, below!
Enjoy this week-in-the-life of nomadic travelers Angela and Chris, from Nomadic Lifestyle, traveling through Scotland!
In 2014 I traveled through/lived in 7 countries, and traversed over 34,000 miles. Here’s a summary of what I did, and where.
Gibraltar is a territory that feels like an island nation, influenced by many cultures and languages. Oh yeah, and it’s a massive tax-free shopping centre.
It was a perfectly sunny weekend in Glasgow, with a side of touristy and a dose of good humour. Check out my action-packed 1-Minute Glasgow video!
London is growing on me, the more I visit this huge city full of anything and everything.
My recent visit to London was redeeming. As always, travel experiences are about more than just the destination! Check out my double-decker time lapse.
“So we have a bit of a hill to climb to get there,” was my only introduction to our imminent journey over Mamore Gap. We were headed to my friend’s country home town for some boozy birthday celebrations, but having just arrived in Ireland I was still getting my bearings and had no idea in which […]
Give a pint of blood…and get a pint of Guinness! That there, my friends, sums up Ireland quite nicely (tongue in cheek). Ireland: The Booze Ireland seems to be a nation of drinkers. Similar to England, pub culture is prevalent…and in fact even more pronounced in Ireland. So my first task on arriving in Ireland […]
I stepped off the ferry in Belfast with exactly ₤2.29 in coins and no bills. I only had one night in Northern Ireland before heading to a friend’s place near Derry (where Euros are the prevailing currency), and I was determined to make the best use of this money while not having to withdraw more […]
International Train Travel – I could think of no better way to get from A to B. Here’s why: I’ve started reading The Old Patagonian Express: By Train Through the Americas by Paul Theroux, which I fear will make me even more evangelistic about international train travel than I already am. In it, the author (a […]
Having spent 10 days in Scotland, I’m intrigued. Scotland – like so many other places – is now on my list of destinations to return to, and experience slowly. Here are some of the highlights: Edinburgh: Festival Central The minute I stepped off the train in Edinburgh (by the way, taking trains and ferries all […]
English pub culture is big. I mean, really big. When I arrived at the place I was to house-sit in Hampshire, the owners were sure to take me on a mini pub-crawl before they left. And in my orientation of the area, I was informed of the pubs I was to strictly avoid, as well […]
It’s hard to believe that I was in England over a month ago. My trip through Europe has been a whirlwind; a pace much faster than my preferred style of slow travel (staying in each place for a few months or more). But my view is skewed too; in a recent email conversation with a […]
