Last March my husband and I took a fabulous trip to the UK. We did some hiking, some sightseeing, and some pub time.
During the Edinburgh part of our trip we visited some fun pubs and tried some fantastic whiskies.
Our evenings would sometimes start with a dram of whisky or glass of wine from the honor bar at our bed and breakfast.
One night we hung out at the Whiski Bar and Restaurant on the Royal Mile in Edinburgh.
We shared the Cullen Skink soup and a haggis tower with neeps and tats.
I was able to try one whisky that was aged in sherry cask and one of the scottish beers.
As a welcome treat, a band played traditional scottish music while we sipped our whisky drinks.
“Every dreamer knows that it is entirely possible to be homesick for a place you’ve never been to, perhaps more homesick than for familiar ground.” ― Judith Thurman
“Where no wood is, there the fire goeth out: so where there is no talebearer, the strife ceaseth.” – King James Bible, Proverbs 26:20
With the power of doubt, you challenge every message you deliver and receive. You challenge every belief that rules your life. Then you challenge all the beliefs that rule society, until you break the spell of all the lies and superstitions that control your world. – don Miguel Ruiz, The Power of Doubt
Some more photos from a past trip to St. Augustine this year…
Last January I spent a great day sight seeing in St. Augustine. I visited St. Augustine a few times as a kid but it was nice to enjoy it again as an adult.
The following are some pictures from our visit to the Castillo de San Marcos.
