{Scotland} part four: the day i left Scotland for a London adventure.

[London, January 10, 2011.]
 i dropped the ball on taking photos while in London.  But I did manage to snap a few with my brave little phone...

London was perfectly cinematic.  it's one of those places you build up in your mind as being fantastically whimsical & come to find out it really is how you've imagined it & so much more.

I explored (read: walked around befuddled in complete awe) & wanted to take every cheesy tour & all that jazz. (because I am american - it's kind of our thing...) But time didn't allow for such activities & I was just as happy wandering around snapping pictures with my silly phone.

I tried (and liked!) oysters.  I sipped on scrumptious english cider (of which i cannot remember the name...) was shown London by a new friend & walked across the tower bridge(!) at night.

& then I pinched myself twice, just to see if i was dreaming.

With each new day it becomes more apparent to me that everything and everyone in this world is connected in some beautiful and inexplicable way, and the more I accept that, the more my world seems to come together.

{Scotland} part three: Glasgow University & wishing my university had a unicorn of its own.

[Glasgow University, Scotland, January 2011.]

I have always been particularly enamored with my university's beautiful campus- but when I stepped onto Glasgow University's campus I couldn't comprehend the beauty.  people go to school here?  they just get to see this every. single. day? how lucky.  

& they have an amazing lion & unicorn staircase. jealous doesn't even begin to describe it.

{Scotland} part two: i truly believe everyone should explore a castle at least once in their life.

[Mugdock Castle, January 2011.]
When i told my nieces tonight that i saw a "real-life castle" on my trip their eyes sparkled & i saw their little minds just racing with wonder.  they were bummed when they found out i didn't get to sleep there, and were more bummed to hear that i didn't meet a prince.

I got to spend the morning with Helen exploring this beautiful castle.  it was breathtaking, as well as a complete dream true.  Poor Helen had to listen to my "oooh's" & "awww's" for at least thirty minutes straight - seriously, she is the best.

but really, when you grow up living in middle of America castles are only found in books. & while books are a wonderful way to explore the world from your own home, i think everyone should experience the view for themselves.

{Scotland} part one: the kind of happiness you thought only existed in books & dreams.

This song just came on my pandora as I began to type this post. Life is crazy beautiful like that sometimes. The little coincidences & signs from above that remind us to smile, remind us we are exactly where we are supposed to be... though we find ourselves sometimes itching to escape.

It's really difficult to put into words how amazing my trip was.  I honestly could not have asked for a better time... & I met the most wonderful people. - I was finally able to meet my dear friend Helen & share many laughs together in person. My heart was stuffed to the brim with complete & utter happiness.  A happiness that you forget is possible.  A happiness you wish was easily bottled up & could be shared with everyone you know.

The above photos are from my many walks exploring Glasgow.  Those moments of exploring a completely foreign city, all by yourself, for hours on end not having any idea where you were going, or where you intended on going, are some of the best moments of your life.  I've never felt more brave & at peace then in those moments.

I wish my trip could have lasted forever - but for now I'll make due with the wonderful memories I made until I'm able to return... I have so much to share! 


I can't really say
Why everybody wishes they were somewhere else
But in the end, the only steps that matter
Are the ones you take all by yourself

"May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you’re wonderful, and don’t forget to make some art — write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself."
- Neil Gaiman
