If You're Leaving From San Francisco...

USA | Fri, 29 Sep 2023 | By graynomadsusa | Views [13]

DESPITE EVIDENCE TO THE CONTRARY, we are not big fans of cruises. We generally take them as alternative transportation to flying or in order to reach out-of-the-way islands. Nevertheless, we’re off again, this time from San Francisco to Sydney ... Read more >

Pitlockry Day 1

UNITED KINGDOM | Mon, 25 Sep 2023 | By lizscar | Views [22]

We woke up early in Leith because we needed to get out of the AirBnB by 10 am and we needed to catch a train. I convinced Jared and my Mom not to take a cab so that we could take the hop on and hop off bus again as our ticket was good for 24 hours and ... Read more >

Edinburgh last full day

UNITED KINGDOM | Sun, 24 Sep 2023 | By lizscar | Views [25]

We slept and slept - my travel companions were un rousable until 3 pm!!! I was getting annoyed since it was our last full day. Mom didn't want to go anywhere and just stay in the AirBnB - I couldn't tell if Jared cared.   Oh and I should say ... Read more >

First Day Scotland

UNITED KINGDOM | Fri, 22 Sep 2023 | By lizscar | Views [27]
