scottish borders, scotland - july 2019

Did not strong connections draw me elsewhere, I believe Scotland would be the country I would choose to end my days in.

As you all know, I love Iceland. However, Scotland provided some fierce competition during a recent trip. My husband and I took a quick weekend getaway to the Scottish Borders and Edinburgh. It was a mystical, inspiring adventure (only complaint was lack of sunshine).

Watch out Iceland, you have some serious rivalry.

Road Trip Music Pick: Weather by Tycho.

Finally a new album from one of California’s best, Tycho aka Scott Hansan. I discovered him through friends several years ago. His music is still the best for twisting along mountain roads and taking in epic views.


Edinburgh photos coming later this week.
