Visit The Enchanted Forest in Pitlochry

A quick visit to Pitlochry over the summer left us wanting to see more – and we also noticed promotional materials for The Enchanted Forest.

Edinburgh is known as the Festival City, with 12 main celebrations programmed throughout the year plus several others in between. While we’ve just finished the August madness of five festivals happening simultaneously (still wrapping my newbie head around what just happened), the next biggest moment for the city is coming up soon. Ladies and gentlemen, it’s time to start planning for Hogmanay in Edinburgh.

London travel

London calls to us all – the rich history, the eclectic culture, the sheer size of this massive city within such a small country. London called and we answered.

Referendum vote Scottish independence

Quick update: we’re off-island traveling and visiting family. I’ll have some random non-Roatan posts for you mixed in with the usual Roatan info for a while. Enjoy!

Rather than having to lay siege and pick up arms to fight for independence from the British Crown, this week the Scottish people will go to the voting booths. How far we’ve come!
