Last photo from Scotland because we still don't want to accept that we're not there anymore! Before we caught our train south we wandered around and stumbled upon the cutest little area in Edinburgh that looked straight out of the past.
Lunch break at the top of a mountain ❤ It sure felt good to take of my wellies 😂👣
Being in Scotland alone for 2 weeks have made me learn more things about life than I've learned in the past 2 years. Experiencing a homesickness like I've never felt before, gut wrenching pangs, claving for comfort, security, loved ones. I even miss my bed, and my favourite pillow. Realising in a way I never knew before just how amazing my parents are. Letting their youngest try her wings, going of to a different country with a suitcase weighing 20kg. How absolutely terrifying it is to not find your gate, knowing that you've made it so far, and missing your flight would be even worse than staying in the comfort zone. Somehow feeling utter calm as the flight lifts,because you know that you are right where you need to be. And then fear, staring you in the face for ever new challenge. How to stay positive even while cleaning toilets and never getting to go to sleep early. Dealing with 50 different emotions every day, from crying to being grateful. Traveling is the best way to learn they say, and I belive that to be true. I am so happy to be leaving my volunteering place this friday, but also thankful for all it has teached me. On friday I'm heading for new adventures in Edinburgh. The first challenge being to find a hostel, because I was navive enough to think it would be easy to find someone on couchsurfers 😅 I found someone to stay with for two nights though, and I'm grateful for that atleast 💕 I am looking forward to new experiences, and taking with me the once I've had. Leaving my comfort zone and my home has not been easy. Guys, I don't even like sleeping over at my friends house because I'm such a comfy little homebird. However, it has taught me what a separated life I've been living and how important it is with real human connection, not just starring at a screen. Is has showed me all I need in order to rebuild my life. To puzzle back the pieces that's left of my old broken life, and create new pieces, to form a new whole one. ❤ (continue in the comments)
View from The Dalmore distillery - Cromarty Firth looking towards Invergordon, and opposite, the Black Isle. A retired oil rig is moored on the left. The Dalmore distillery was used by the US Navy from 1917-1920 as a base to assemble mines. The completed mines were then taken by train to Invergordon and loaded on to ships. The distillery was badly damaged by the time the Navy were finished with it, however, production resumed in 1922.
