Sticking With It

Sticking With It

There’s a lively debate on the Internet over whether or not you should finish every book you start. (Are there things that don’t get debated on the Internet anymore?)

Dunnotar Castle

Dunnotar Castle

Of all the things we saw while we were in the UK, Dunnotar Castle has to be my favourite. Don’t get me wrong; Stonehenge was beyond amazing, and something I’d longed to see most of my life. But never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined visiting a place like Dunnotar Castle (perhaps partly …

The Viking Experience

The Viking Experience

On our way to Edinburgh for the first time, we stopped for an afternoon in York. There were lots of things we wanted to see, but our time was limited. We settled on one thing; the Jorvik Viking Centre, which my husband was eager to visit. The Jorvik Centre is built over top the remains …
