For our first anniversary we went on a road trip through Scotland. All the way to the top. It was amazing. I didn't bring a camera. I often regret that. I have memories driving though the highlands and being stopped in a canyon by hundred's of majestic red deer. We were on a tiny one lane road for probably 300 miles. Then we came over the crest of a hill and there they all were. We eventually had to stop because they were blocking the road but we didn't mind. We just sat there and tried to count them. Then we looked for the deer with the most points on his antlers. The highest number we found was 18! Can you believe it?! We enjoyed the fog coming over the mountain and sat in awe of what we were witnessing. There was an actual reverence to the moment. It is something I will never forget.
Road trips are kind of our thing. We love to hop in the car and just go. Wherever we want. This country has something just waiting to be found--no matter which way you go. On Sunday we needed to head over to Elgin, Scotland. It took us not quite 2 hrs to get there but this was a part of the country we hadn't been before. I brought a book to read but I couldn't read because I enjoyed looking out the window too much!
I wanted to share some photos of this little road trip with YOU. I hope you enjoy seeing more of Scotland with me.
ps. One picture I wish I would have stopped to get was a fork in the road and a sign that pointed toward a different castle in each direction. All against the backdrop of the beautiful Scottish countryside. I should have screamed for Luis to "STOP THE CAR!" That would have made a great phot.
pps. We're going on a 3 day road trip to England starting Monday! I'll be on instagram sharing our trip in real time. I hope you'll join us!
