Edinburgh

October 2nd, 2018 · No Comments

We arrived during the festival rush in August. Somehow we still managed to get a place in a hostel that was affordable and were soon off to explore the city. One of the highlights is the view looking back from Arthur’s seat. Just walking through the streets in the city center takes you past the […]

Glasgow

In Glasgow we arrived at the Queen’s Street Station and went straight to the lost and found office. Again, no sign of our guitar. We got to our hostel and soon were off again, cycling through half the city to get to our date with Maggie. We spend the night in a relaxed bar and […]

Rannoch Moor

Our journey started with a trainride along the West Highland Line, that i would recommend if you are travelling through this part of Scotland. While we waited at the train station in Arisaig, one of the steam trains frequenting this line passed through. The train ride was amazing. Still stunned by the beauty, we got […]

Arisaig Highland Games

September 30th, 2018 · No Comments

We had to book a camping site in advance because of the popularity of these games and got lucky to get a perfect spot at the Silversands Campsite near the beach. It was a full day. The next day we spent chilling at the beach and even when for a swim and watching the sun […]

Skye

We arrived late in Uist, where we just had enough time to pitch our tents, have a shower, eat dinner and go to sleep. The next day we climbed gently along the River Rha to the viewing point towards the Quiraing. The downhill part was over far too quickly, but gave us also plenty of […]

Outer Hebrides

After arriving in Castlebay, we cycled south to the beaches of Vatersay, where there is an informal campsite that lets you pitch a tent in a beautiful setting next to the beach. The beach was stunning and in the morning the sun came out to greet it. We started cycling north along the west coast […]

Northern Ireland

July 18th, 2018 · No Comments

We spent our first night in Northern Ireland just next to the border. When we crossed it, we hardly noticed it. If it weren’t for the big protest signs from the border communities against the Brexit and consequently an EU border deepening the separation of the two Irish countries once more. The next day we […]

Leitrim cycling festival

June 26th, 2018 · No Comments

Just a small note in one of the cycling groups was enough to make the decision to adjust our plans to make it to the small village of Manorhamilton. In the evening we went to a presentation of two travellers before retiring to our tents early. The next day we all made our way to […]

Ireland – part two

June 26th, 2018 · No Comments

We didn’t always make it to a campsite. So we wildcamped in parts and one time just asked a local man if he knew a piece of land where we could pitch our tent for one night. Michael immediately invited us to make use of his garden and made sure we were lacking nothing. After […]

Ireland – part one

June 11th, 2018 · No Comments

Arriving at Rosslare in Ireland, it was already late and getting cold. With all the supplies we got from Lawrence and Marina, we had already feasted during the crossing and now only needed to find a place for the night which we found in a campground just five kilometers down the road. The first days […]
