Outlander Castle Hunting

After finals, a few friends and I packed into a car and went on a little Outlander themed roadtrip. Our trip featured three Outlander film spots: Linlithgow Palace (Wentworth Prison), Blackness Castle (Fort William) and Midhope Castle (Lallybroch).

Italian Christmas

Buon Natale!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! I must admit that I’ve been feeling a little homesick being away from my family and dog for the holiday season. However, I didn’t let that stop me from making the most of winter vacation.

The Scottish Highlands and Isle of Skye

Seeing the Fairy Pools on Isle of Skye was #1 on my Scottish bucket list when I moved over here. A couple other things high on my list of things to see were Culloden and the Eileen Donan Castle.  During my mid-trimester break, I was able to cross all three of things off my bucket list. Two friends joined me for a three-day bus tour traveling from Edinburgh to the Isle of Skye.
