happy dog ready to go to the House & Pet Sitting Conference in the UK

“What is a house and pet sitting conference? Do you just share photos of dogs and cats all day?” That’s the legitimate question sequence I got from a friend when I mentioned my upcoming travel plans.

My response? “OMG I hope so!!”

St Andrews and Fife Rabbie's tour in Scotland

If you’re visiting Scotland and basing much of your time around Edinburgh, you can easily take a day trip to many interesting locations. While public transportation is readily available and accessible, sometimes it just doesn’t quite get you where you want to go. For those places, it’s worthwhile taking a tour.

After attending the recent Travel Massive event in Edinburgh, I realized there were so many opportunities to easily check out more of Edinburgh than I knew existed. First, I heard about Invisible Edinburgh and took the first tour available with them. Next, I was introduced to Rabbie’s Edinburgh City Tour.

Invisible Edinburgh tours of the city centre

By far one of the most interesting and admirable projects I’ve come across lately has to be Invisible Edinburgh. This social enterprise (read: What is a Social Enterprise and How Can I Get Involved?) offers training to individuals coming from homelessness so they can become walking tour guides. Taking the Invisible Edinburgh Powerful Women tour was a truly enlightening experience for this new expat 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.

A few days touring in London left our heads spinning with our wallets emptied, yet the sites to see are endless and we merely scratched the surface. Even still, here’s a quick recap of where to eat, drink, and learn throughout the city of London.

Off-Island Update: I’m on the Border of History

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!


 

September 18, 2014, marks the date William Wallace and Robert the Bruce would have to pick their jaws up off the ground if they were still alive (in case you don’t know who they are, the quick fix is to watch Braveheart – but you should also do some Googling ASAP). 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!
