Finally praise the lord I have found wifi! So there has been quite a change of plan from what I had intentionally planned as I received word that my friend would be biking up in Scotland, therefore I thought I may as well have a little taster before I leave the UK.
So we have pitched up camp at Glen Coe in a remote cabin and the rest of the day has been hiking and biking in the surrounding area. This is the first time I’ve ever been up to Scotland and I honestly can’t put into words how breathtakingly beautiful it is, it puts your life into perspective when gazing upon the sheer power and beauty of nature.
I met up with my friend around midday and we engaged in a couple of hours biking and having to stop every so often for her to catch up has made me thankful that I am indeed going to be travelling alone!
At around 3pm we came across fellow backpackers / bikers / kilt wearing madmen! If you can imagine this bizarre sight, a few men wearing kilts, singing for everyone to enjoy playing as though in front of an audience, serenading us as we tried to pass until we were lightly forced to join in, leaving on the promise we will receive free concert tickets if they ever made it big.
The only was I can describe that moment was something like the Design Argument with the watch in the desert, seemingly random and unexpected yet also seems to have a purpose.
The weather is most unsatisfactory yet being inside a cosy cabin with the fire on, I mustn’t complain. The evening has mostly been taken up by reminiscing old times, eating, attempting to get a tv signal and attempting to plan the next step of my journey. I wish to stay around Scotland for a couple more days to get in the swing of things and to enjoy the beauty which is on my doorstep.
I HAVE TRIED HAGGIS FOR THE FIRST TIME AND IT SHALL ALSO BE THE LAST TIME.
I have to be up early as requested by my partner in crime, therefore a goods night sleep is in order, if your reading this I thank you and hope I’ve not bored you to death. it may be a while before I post again so stay weird and crazy! x
