Urquhart Castle

Urquhart Castle

We didn’t have much time on our first trip to Scotland so we had to prioritize the sites we wanted to see. We all agreed it wouldn’t be a trip to Scotland if we didn’t see castles. We skipped the more touristy ones in favour of Dunnotar and Urquhart. The tourist center at Urquhart castle …

Fun with Playlist Synergy

As I’ve mentioned on numerous occasions, I have playlists for everything.

The History of Scotland

The History of Scotland

The National Museum of Scotland has a unique wing dedicated to the complete history of Scotland. It spans about five floors, moving up a tower from the base of the museum to the top. Many museums present the history of a location with the layout of their exhibits, but none quite so thoroughly as the …

Writer’s Block is Real

Writer’s Block is Real

A lot of blogs I’ve read lately boldly proclaim writer’s block is fictional. Many seem convinced it’s a figment of the imagination, an illusory hurdle writers create for themselves, adding to a road already littered with pitfalls. I believe the purpose of these posts is encouragement; to awaken us to the fact that the journey …
