More Scotland Travels

Passing Places by David Gadient, 2018

My husband David and I have just returned from three weeks in Scotland, visiting places we were happy to see again—especially Orkney—as well as exploring new areas we hadn’t been to on our first trip two years ago (scroll down a bit to see all posts). We were also lucky to spend time with friends over meals and drinks. I don’t plan on making a day-by-day series of blog posts about this trip, but I’ll be glad to share a few photos once I regain a sense of local time. Hope you’re having a great week!
