Views From The Top Of Princes Street Suites

Edinburgh, Scotland. Do you remember last month when I shared the photo above? If not, it was when I shared about our stay at Princes Street Suites in Edinburgh. This was one of the views from the rooftop terrace. At the time, I promised a future post with more views from the rooftop terrace of Princes [...]

Doors of Stirling

Doors of Stirling

Photography Series. I've been enjoying creating these photography series. They seem the best way to showcase the photos that I'd like to share with all of you. I have shared many doors since discovering Norm's (host of Thursday Doors) blog. I shared in last week's Friday Faves that my mother and I would be traveling [...]

Princes Street Suites in Edinburgh, Scotland

Princes Street Suites in Edinburgh, Scotland

Edinburgh, Scotland. I can't believe that 7 months have already passed by since I traveled to Edinburgh, Scotland with my mother and aunt. I'm working on travel plans for 2018. Spring break has been booked. Look for the announcement in tomorrow's Friday Faves. I'm also working on a trip with my mother. We are still [...]

Photo Diary Inside The Royal Yacht Britannia

Photo Diary Inside The Royal Yacht Britannia

Royal Yacht Britannia. With all this talk of Royal weddings, I thought that today we'd visit the Royal Yacht Britannia. The Royal Yacht Britannia served the Royal Family from 1954 until it was decommissioned in 1997. It traveled over 1,000,000 during that time span. But you may already know those facts. Indeed, it's likely that [...]

George Square – Glasgow, Scotland

George Square – Glasgow, Scotland

  Glasgow, Scotland. Even though I only spent two days in Glasgow, I fell in love with this city. Its architecture, its friendly people, its history. Ancestry. The trip to Scotland with my aunt and mother was to trace some of our ancestral histories. To be able to walk along some of the streets where [...]

The King’s Old Building At Stirling Castle

The King’s Old Building At Stirling Castle

  Stirling Castle. When I traveled to Scotland with my mom and aunt at the beginning of June, one of the day trips on our list was traveling to Stirling Castle. I've written a little about that day trip in this post. Stirling Castle is maintained by Historic Environment Scotland, which preserves historic properties across [...]

Telephone Boxes In Scotland

Telephone Boxes In Scotland

  Telephone Boxes (or Booths, as I call them). I am a lover of things reminiscent of the past. Especially when it comes to telephones. When I was young, I dreamed of owning a Victorian style phone. Later in life, I perused thrift stores because I want to find an old rotary dial phone for [...]

Photo Tour Royal Yacht Britannia

Photo Tour Royal Yacht Britannia

Royal Yacht Britannia. A few weeks ago I shared photos of some of the doors to be found on the Royal Yacht Britannia. If you missed that post on the Britannia, you can find it here. I found the views from the yacht to be beautiful. The yacht itself with its wood accents and attention [...]

Prisons of War Exhibition – Edinburgh Castle

Prisons of War Exhibition – Edinburgh Castle

Prisons of War. One of the exhibitions at Edinburgh Castle is the prisons of war exhibition. It's located within Dury's Battery, which is at the top of the hill past the Royal Scots Museum. The re-creation shows what life was like for the prisoners of war. Prison Doors. Of course, I found the prison doors [...]

Greyfriars Kirkyard

Greyfriars Kirkyard

Scotland. It's Halloween, so of course, my travel tale had to come from a graveyard! Originally the question was... which one? I visited quite a few graveyards while in Scotland. I've already shared about visiting the Necropolis in Glasgow. As luck would have it, while I was hunting some information on Flodden Wall for last [...]
