Scottish Highlands: Wild and Awe Inspiring

Our adventures to the Isle of Skye began from Fort Williams, and we were happily greeted by bright sunshine with big fluffy clouds as far as the eye could see.  We were being wooed to the Isle of Skye with glimmers of sunshine, and I was simply in love.  Because when Scotland gives you a day […]

From Stirling Castle, we headed towards the famously beautiful Scottish Highlands through Loch Lomond. I had never been to the highlands before, and I will be honest, I was really looking forward to these views and vistas.

Thoughts on Building Blogging Readership {vlog}

There is nothing I love more than getting e-mails from readers with questions on life as an expat, travels or blogging.
