Isle of Seil and the Atlantic Ocean
i have no words to describe my experience so far, scotland has - by far and away - surpassed my expectations and beliefs and has already given me beautiful memories and adventures in the 2 weeks that i have been here. each turn here has been a delectable surprise - my flatmates and our little dinner parties, the roaming hills, sheep sun-baking on the road, greenhouses and garden beds, the warmth of the people, mystical 'loch's, dreamy vintage houses, the contrast of my cultural bias. all the little towns i've been to - oban, isle of seil, isle of whithorn, gatehouse of fleet, luss - has been as spectacular as the one before. i've had cliff-high views of the atlantic ocean, and then in another town of scotland i could see england on one side and ireland on the other. i have been shown that bagpipes are - contrary to popular belief - not annoying, enjoyable especially when paired with the most cheerful men in kilts and accompanied by the beats of drums. having only a limited amount of time here, i have learnt to seize the day and not to take a
place for granted.
ahhhh scotland you have definitely captured my heart.
