We're all going on a summer holiday...

Today is the day!
Our bags are packed, clothes washed and folded, maps ready to go in the car…and Josh had a boys night last night so my house is a MESS. Oh well, you can’t have it all!

This weekend we’re heading from Wales (1) up to the Lake District (2) to see Josh’s family.
Then on Monday we’re driving up into Scotland to Glencoe (3)
On Thursday we have to catch a boat to Knoydart (4). It has been branded Scotland’s last wilderness because you can only get to it by boat or by walking 20 miles across the mountains. We’re there for two days.
Then it’s a boat back to the mainland and then a ferry over to the Island of Skye for a week (5).
Sorry this is a rushed post but I still have so much to do before we leave!
I’m not sure when we’re going to have internet over the next week, but I’ll try to blog about out adventure when I can.
Does anyone want to receive a postcard from our travels? Let me know in the comments or email me your address at countrydreaming [at] googlemail [dot] com. I'd love to send you one!
I’m excited!


  1. I'd be excited, too! Have an amazing time! Can't wait to see the holiday snaps!

  2. Hope y'all enjoy your trip!!! Those days leading up to it are always the worst....so much to do. But once you step out the door, you just can't worry anymore and only have one thing to do....ENJOY!!!!

  3. Glencoe is great! I did my first proper challenging walk up there and my dad still gets teary whenever he recalls it. Lol! I love Scotland, watch out for all the fab creatures. You might see Sea Eagles like my brother and dad did in Mull. Enjoy!!!

  4. WONDERFUL!! I'll keep you guys in my prayers. I can't wait to hear/see all about your trip. I wouldn't even consider asking for a post card, but if you happen to have a lot of change and a mind to, you can send one my way :)

  5. Wow, I hope you're both sharing the driving! I drove from Bath to Cornwall this weekend and I was pooped! have a wicked trip and show us plenty of photos when you get home please!

  6. Jealous!! I could use a nice vacation.

    Hope you have a blast!
