What’s a girl to do when her daughter is visiting from the steaming south of Texas and they want to explore a new part of England, but it’s so cold outside that they can see the ice crystals floating in a kind of frozen mist? I’ve learned quickly that if you let the bad weather […]
Half way around the Isle of May we pulled into the little harbor on the North Sea side of the island. Brian and Tam had held back as long as they could, and finally had their fun by jumping in the water. In February. In the North Sea. I, however, am not a […]
Finally, all snug in our drysuits and on our way to the Isle of May with only minimal splashing. The five mile ride to the island was freezing cold but smooth, and so fun. It wasn’t long before the little smudge on the horizon loomed just off the front of the boat, and we […]
Have I mentioned that Brian likes to surprise me? Every once in a while he’ll take one of my offhand comments and run with it. In this case he latched on to “I’d like to see puffins in the wild”. We were already planning to head up to Scotland for the weekend to celebrate a […]
When a friend told me we should check out High Force I wasn’t sure what she was talking about. Just the words brought pictures of skydiving and military training to mind. Do we seem like people who want to jump out of planes? Or play at bootcamp? Or shoot anything? I assure you, we are […]
We really didn’t know much about Amsterdam before we arrived. With only two days of planning we didn’t have time to do our usual routine of research before we left (I should say my routine of relentless Google stalking). I really didn’t realize the extent of the canal system. I knew they had canals, but […]
What do you do when you decide to take a last minute trip somewhere? Do you book the flight and hope you can find a room, or do you book your rooms first and hope you don’t get screwed on the cost of the flight? Or are you one of those responsible people who does […]
When we left Comrie on the morning after our hike to the monument, I spent the few hours during the drive in a sort of mesmerized daze. The scenery is so beautiful, the heather covering the hills so purple, the rain clouds so puffy and dramatic that I couldn’t look away. For about four […]
You should see Brian’s face light up when he smells the sea. He was born near the sea, and even though he has lived in three countries, on three continents, he’s always lived near a coastline. Water seems to call his name. No matter how wild or cold, he seems happiest when he’s out in […]
I’m going to take you back to last year. Boxing day, the day after Christmas, Brian and I boarded a plane in Houston, TX with our arms full of very special clothing. It was a long haul to our destination. Three airports, three different planes, two ferry terminals, a rain storm and finally a ride […]
My son didn’t make many requests for the time he spent with us during a recent visit. He wanted to eat good churrasco, see some of our local town, and spend some time at a few good beaches. Good beaches you say? We know just the place. This is Praia do Forno in Arraial do […]
A Brazilian friend of ours loves to fish. We each have friends back home, both in the US and in Scotland, who go fishing as often as they can. Both Brian and I grew up with fishing family members who taught us how to bait a hook and clean a fish. When we think of […]
Who are these people?
Peg and Brian - An American photographer and her hot Scottish husband, expats and slow travelers out in the world and writing about it. Along the way we hope to see amazing sights, meet interesting people, stay in roach free lodgings and stay alive. So far, so good (except for the roaches).
