The Highlander

This time last week we were on our way up to Scotland. 
At the midway stop hubby and I sat and pondered over how many times we'd made that journey and all the times that we'd said we'd never take the night bus again.
Yes, we say that next time we'll be smart and book in advance and get a "cheap" train fare but it never quite happens like that cause we always leave it that little bit too late and therefore we always end up going by the dungeon on wheels that is the Megabus overnighter. 
Maybe we have slight masochistic tendencies? 
I mean why else would we put ourselves through the ten hour  nightmare of  torturous neck stiffness, raging restless legs, excruciating arse ache and coffee that tastes like it has been sieved though a pair of grotty old pants?
 Not to mention the fact that when you finally reach your destination you feel as if you have been travelling all scrunched up in a suitcase like some contortionist from a  freak show and it takes a good couple of days to get back to normal and then you have to do it all over again to get back home, och!
My neck is almost back to its "crickless" old self  but it has to be said that I actually recuperate faster from jet-lag  than I do from the dreaded Megabus-lag.
Next time we are planning to go up north I will superglue a note to my forehead reading... 
"BUY TRAIN TICKETS YOU SILLY BAG".
I've finished editing all the photos that we took in Glen Coe last Saturday morning, some are for the shop but these ones we took just for fun...
I made a little slideshow for my folks that you can take a wee peek at should you wish to, it's less than a minute long and it's just a few more pics than the ones above...
The song is by a really talented Danish singer songwriter called Allan Nordkvist, you can listen to the song in its entirety here...
...it's awesome, I really love his voice!
That's it for today folks, hope you are all doing grand and feeling dandy :)
Friday is here...HUZZAH!
Lot's of love,
Jennie

That scenery is utterly spellbinding and you ain't half bad in front of it, either!!!
Get a train ticket. I can't imagine anything worse than a coach journey. I did Birmingham to Spain in the 1980s when I was seriously broke and it nearly killed me, my ankles were fatter than a fat thing! xxx
