The Glasgow Film Festival

The Glasgow Film Festival is Pretty Darn Awesome & You Should Seriously Go

We started off the year housesitting with Higabee the Maine Coone in Stockholm, Sweden. We got back January 7 and moved into our new apartment in Prague, and things have been getting rather interesting since. Let’s start off with a photo of Higabee: literally the …

Haggis Pakora: A Fusion of Fear and Food in Glasgow!

Let me just start by telling you how much of a wimp I am when it comes to food.  If it comes from water, I won’t eat it.  If I can’t pronounce it, I won’t eat it. If it starts with the letter Z, there’s a good chance I won’t eat it.  I can’t physically …

Video: Driving around Scotland’s Isle of Skye and Isle of Lewis & Harris

During our visit to Scotland, we decided it was best to rent a car and drive to, and around, the Isle of Skye and the Isle of Lewis and Harris.  I was admittedly nervous about driving in Scotland, it being my first experience driving on the opposite side of the road, but it was quickly …

Walking through Leith

Sunshine on Leith: A Visual Tour of Leith Edinburgh

From Prince’s Street, we took the bus together, sitting on the top deck at the front so we could watch Edinburgh pass below us. We split under foreboding, rain-bearing clouds; Geoff went forward, and I turned and walked back in the direction from which we had come, until I found myself alone with nothing but …
