Wanderlust Fulfilled: Prague Castle

Wanderlust Fulfilled: Prague Castle

Happy Friday! After wandering through the main square, seeing the Tyn Church and Astronomical Clock, which I posted about here, we (and by we, I mean the hubby) decided to head up to the castle. I will start by highly recommending that you figure out which subway/metro stop takes you to the castle, as the walk up the hill is definitely a hike. It was a pretty walk, but something more enjoyed on the way down than the way up….

Wanderlust Fulfilled: Prague

Wanderlust Fulfilled: Prague

My hubby turned 27 a few weeks ago, so we decided to celebrate with a weekend road trip to Prague. This trip was a bit last minute, as I was still waiting for my residence permit and my temporary had expired a few days before, so not much planning or research happened. Luckily we were able to get in to get permits before the weekend, and off we went. We are continually learning that European traffic has a mind of…

Wanderlust Fulfilled: Eileen Donan Castle

Wanderlust Fulfilled: Eileen Donan Castle

Happy Friday all! We decided to make one last stop on our drive from Isle of Skye back to Edinburgh to catch our flight to Germany. Eileen Donan was a perfect choice! The castle is on an island where three lochs meet just a little south of Kyle of Lochalsh. It’s a pretty iconic castle appearing in several films including Highlander and 007- The World is Not Enough. It was a little grey that morning, but that was pretty par…

Wanderlust Fulfilled: Fairy Glen- Isle of Skye

Wanderlust Fulfilled: Fairy Glen- Isle of Skye

As I mentioned here and here, I have a bit of a fairy obsession that I apparently come by naturally. 🙂 Needless to say, as I was asking the front desk about driving directions to the Fairy Pools, and she was more than happy to give us a few other recommendations- including Fairy Glen. She saw me coming a mile away, and I was definitely sold! After convincing the hubby that it must be done, especially as it was a…

Wanderlust Fulfilled: Dunvegan Castle

Wanderlust Fulfilled: Dunvegan Castle

Happy Friday! I totally did not mean to take the week off blogging, but sometimes that is just what you need. I started the week off not feeling so great, and my body and mind decided I just needed the time to recuperate. This post was one I was just too excited about to miss though! Today I’m taking you to Dunvegan Castle on the Isle of Skye, Scotland. This particular castle was a must-see on our trip to Scotland,…

Wanderlust Fulfilled: Fairy Pools- Isle of Skye

Happy Friday! I have to say, even though I am coming to the end of the posts on our trip to Scotland, that I’m really excited to be getting to our time on the Isle of Skye. Growing up a McLeod- the Isle of Skye, and Dunvegan was a must see while we were in Scotland. I will be showing you the pictures of Dunvegan Castle next week, but just know that it’s coming. 🙂 Our first full day on…

Wanderlust Fulfilled: Craigievar & Kildrummy Castles and the Gardens at Leith Hall

Wanderlust Fulfilled: Craigievar & Kildrummy Castles and the Gardens at Leith Hall

Happy Friday! How has another week already flown by? Today I have the last of our castles from the Aberdeen/Balmedie area. At the first castle we stopped at (Drum) from my post last Friday, they talked us into signing me up for the National Trust of Scotland membership as it would be cheaper for my age range after a couple castles than paying the entrance fees everywhere. All of this is to say that I started looking specifically for castles…

Wanderlust Fulfilled: Crathes and Drum Castles -Balmedie

Wanderlust Fulfilled: Crathes and Drum Castles -Balmedie

I had originally intended for this to be one post about our next stop in the Aberdeen/Balmedie area. However once I saw how many photos I had picked out I decided to break it into a few posts by castle. This is a great area for viewing castles. There are several in the Aberdeen area, and they are close enough that you can view several in one day. At this point in our trip (after we were dropped off in the…

Wanderlust Fullfilled: Loch Ness

Wanderlust Fullfilled: Loch Ness

This is the second installment in my Wanderlust Fulfilled series, as well as my second post about our trip to Scotland. If you would like to read about our days in Edinburgh click here. After tooling around Edinburgh, we hoped on bus, then train, then bus to make our way to Drumnadrochit, just outside of Inverness and located directly on Loch Ness. I should mention at this point that when I said we had been overwhelmed and were just kind…
