Honeymoon Tours Scotland

This kind-of put a dampener on my plans to get some snowsports done, but I’d already taken the time off work so I re-arranged my plans into a “make it up as you go along” tour of the highlands and lowlands of Scotland.

Highlights of my little tour included:

  • Renting an almost brand-new car, and – by the time I returned it – being responsible for more than half the miles on the odometer.
  • Visiting my family both on the way up and the way down – my dad injured his back while cycling around Italy this winter, and had originally hoped to join me in Scotland (perhaps to get some more training in for his upcoming trek to the North Pole). He couldn’t, as he was still recovering, but it was nice to drop by.
  • Being virtually the only guest at each of and youth hostels; getting an entire dormitory to myself at each.
  • Exhilarating but exhausting trek up . The freezing conditions, plus the incredible wind, meant that I spent the Tower Ridge stretch clinging to a steep ice slope against the push of a gale-force blizzard. Spectacular.
  • . I’ve never done ice climbing before (y’know – scaling a glacier with crampons and ice axes), and it was spectacular. Also, very tiring, especially after just coming down off Ben Nevis a couple of hours earlier. I was pleased that not all of the rock climbing experience I’d had, over 15 years ago, was completely forgotten, and my stamina – if not my flexibility – was better than I expected.
  • Veggie haggis, tatties, neeps, and a dram of whisky on, drying myself off by the open fire in a wonderful little pub.
  • A reasonably-gentle walk along the lochside at, in order to allow my knee – which I banged swinging into a wall of ice – to recover a litle.
  • Visiting the, the world’s first and only rotating boat lift. Did you know that the wheel is apparently so efficient that it costs only £10 a day in electricity to run it?
  • Live comedy and music in Edinburgh. Also, meeting fabulous strangers and hanging out with them drinking whisky and singing along to bawdy Scottish folk songs until past midnight.
  • Returning to to find it full of Spanish sports fans. Sharing pizza with them, and conversations in broken English.
  • Visiting the and learning all of the bits of 13th Century Scottish history that they don’t teach you in . It’s far cooler, yet much much bloodier, than you’d be made to believe.
  • Geocache-maintenance expedition with, along with the opportunity to dress up in and hang about near roundabouts and road signs.
  • Chinese buffet with Kit &, two of my favourite people to go to a Chinese buffet with. Surprisingly impressive selection of veggie-friendly foods, which is something I look for, these days.

Small boat tour/cruises in Mediterranean?

by fancyhalfpants

I would love to take a mini-cruise (as in small boat, not short time :) of the mediterranean next spring for my honeymoon. I am looking for the opposite of a carnival cruise. An old (nicely kept) wooden ship is ideal, or a large yacht perhaps. Looking for a capacity of less than 20 or so... not more than 100 for sure. We want a personal experience. - I suppose akin to a B&B on the sea!
Any ideas at all. I have searched the net to no avail so far!
I would be so grateful for ideas!!!
xoxoxo
