  • St. Andrews and the Highlands posted September 30, 2010 by Holly Hayes

    Greetings from Inverness in the Scottish Highlands. It is beautiful here and we've been having a good time. Our journey didn't start off so well, though! Yesterday, from the moment we woke up in Edinburgh until into the evening, it poured...

  • At Home in Edinburgh posted September 28, 2010 by Holly Hayes

    We arrived in Edinburgh around 1:30pm on Sunday, which was earlier than expected, and it was great to have the extra time to wander around at our leisure. The sun was shining brightly and it was actually warm all afternoon, which was a...

  • Canterbury to Cambridge posted September 21, 2010 by Holly Hayes

    Yesterday morning we went inside Canterbury Cathedral as soon as it opened at 9am and started our visit in the crypt, which was closed last time we visited. It is the biggest crypt I've ever seen, stretching underneath almost the whole...
