Weekend Getaways from Glencoe
Glencoe was one of the much awaited spots for us to visit. We rented a car and drove the 115 miles from Edinburgh. And that was our best decision! Scotland is best enjoyed on the road. The road trip itself seemed like a ticket to heaven, but when we got there we were treated with a peek at Hogwarts Express bridge - all Harry Potter fans amongst us were overjoyed. Glencoe also happens to be where a good part of 5th Harry Potter movie was shot. We stopped over a couple of times along the route to enjoy a hot cuppa and the view :) The entire to and fro was a day trip from E'burgh to Glencoe.

After a fill of history, scotch and scrumptious food, keep the last day on the Scotland itinerary to relax and enjoy a slow pace. Take a train from Inverness to Glasgow (it will take about 3 and a half hours). Once there, spend the day taking in the sights and sounds of the city.

On a glorious summer's day, we decided to head to Donegal. Co.Donegal is not that far from co. Sligo, so after a short hour we made our way over to Slieve League. Slieve League are some of Europe's highest cliffs standing 601m tall.

#CoffeewithTripotoComing back with a blog after an eternity seems like a task, rather it actually is one. I had to spend hours thinking about a perfect start for this beautiful piece. No, I am not being biased towards my writing that too prior to completing it rather I am referring to it as beautiful, for it involves a story of travelling through a beautiful place that also hosts a house I intend to have as my retirement home.Nestled amidst the ‘Scottish Highlands’ lies a place I explored this turn, which goes by the name ‘Inverness’.The first question that popped in my head as soon as I stepped in ‘Inverness’ was, what should I refer the place as? Hamlet? Well the place has a lot of churches, dictionary says I can’t use the word in that case.City? Really? But, I missed the normal hustle and bustle here, may be Town? I guess yes, it fits.So there I was visiting this town located north in Scotland almost opening out to the Atlantic Ocean. I was travelling as part of a group that had three people, other two being two of my favourite people on earth.We took a train from Edinburgh to reach this town, hostel was pre booked and was centrally located.
