Our long Easter weekend trip turned into a much needed off-grid get-away. Taking in the simple things and enjoying nature. If
you’ve read my previous post on my close-second favourite place in the world so far (Paris being the 1st), then you’ll know my feelings on
Scotland. I fell wholly in love with the pine-scented paradise in the North, full of stunning lochs, mountain passes and spectacular views
of nature. For a small country so close to us in the UK, it feels as though you’re experiencing a far away land that isn’t just a hop, skip and
jump away from Stansted Airport.
The most noticeable difference is the climate, it is discernibly colder than London. Which, surprisingly, was a welcome change lending a
freshness to the air. Days filled with mid-morning drives through the winding, hilly roads; afternoons spent climbing mountains or cycling
around Loch Katrine and afternoons of tea with scones to recoup ready for our next adventures. The final thing that resonates more than
anything is the pace of life – relaxed, friendly and an appetite for life that the locals all seem to have. Scotland is somewhere
that should be on everyone’s bucket lists.
