WHW – Day 7 & 8 (Tyndrum to Inveroran to Glencoe Mtn. Resort)

It was a misty morning when we got up. My whole body hurt when I get up and start moving around. I think that my body may never submit to the daily strenuous exercise that I subject it to. It's hard to get the gears moving but eventually the muscles loosen up. We have 9 … Continue reading WHW – Day 7 & 8 (Tyndrum to Inveroran to Glencoe Mtn. Resort)

WHW – Day 5 & 6 (Inverarnan to Crianlarich to Tyndrum)

Day 5 - Inverarnan to Crianlarich The word of the day is RAINWATER. Thankfully, the three longest days are now behind us. We now have two short days of six miles each day between Inverarnan, Crianlarich, and Tyndrum. It's possible to do that in one day but during the planning phase, it seemed reasonable that … Continue reading WHW – Day 5 & 6 (Inverarnan to Crianlarich to Tyndrum)

WHW – Day 4 (Rowardennan to Inverarnan)

After our "rest day", in which Esther and I hiked 8 miles with 3,000feet of elevation gain and descent, it was time to hit the trail again - hiking from Rowardennan to Inverarnan. The route says it'll be 14 miles and it's the last section of the trail where my big pack will have baggage … Continue reading WHW – Day 4 (Rowardennan to Inverarnan)

WHW Day 3 – Rest Day & Ben Lomond

Day 3 on the trail - well, not actually ON the West Highland Way, but on another trail; Ben Lomond. I've been here before in 2018 towards the end of April/beginning of May. From hiking the whole trail this time, I think I got about 3/4ths of the way up the mountain when rain, wind, … Continue reading WHW Day 3 – Rest Day & Ben Lomond

Vacation: a 95 mile hike (high potential for rain)

I started writing this post back in mid-May. Well, hello readers. I'm still here; I know it's been a while since my last post. I've been rather busy with work for the last nearly two years. I'm a senior project coordination manager and I love my job! Loving my job makes it pretty easy to … Continue reading Vacation: a 95 mile hike (high potential for rain)

Tyndrum, Scotland UK (April 30th – May 3rd, 2018)

April 30th I had rented a car with Easirent Edinburgh Airport. The price was significantly cheaper than the usual rental car companies such a s Hertz, Enterprise, Avis, etc. I was thinking "how is this company so much cheaper." I had reserved a vehicle through RentalCars.com in Queenstown NZ and we got an additional ding … Continue reading Tyndrum, Scotland UK (April 30th – May 3rd, 2018)

Edinburgh, Scotland (April 28th – 29th, 2018)

Up and about, preparing to catch my train to Edinburgh. I was up and packed before any of the guys in my room were conscious. Hopped on my train and headed out of London. Part of the way up to Edinburgh, I was working on my scrapbook; gluing little bits and remnants into it. It … Continue reading Edinburgh, Scotland (April 28th – 29th, 2018)

London, England (April 26th – 27th, 2018)

April 26th I arrived at London Gatwick airport at approximately 12:30pm. I bought a train ticket to go to Kings Cross train station but then when I went down to the platform, I just caught the first train that came by that said "London" and ended up going to London Bridge station, approximately 2.4 miles … Continue reading London, England (April 26th – 27th, 2018)
