Below is an excerpt from my travel blog. Cheers.


Scotland is everything I imagined it to be. Not to be stereotypical, but much of what was in my head about Scotland was a result of the movie Braveheart. Most of my friends know I have a fascination with William Wallace and the highlands of Scotland. The running joke is that most of my friends had a bet that I would buy a kilt and run through some random Scottish farmers field pretending I was William Wallace. I hope I didn't let down too many of my friends in saying that I didn't partake in any William Wallace reenactments. Maybe next time.


Ironically, Scotland reminded me a lot of New Zealand, where I started my round-the-world journey. The dramatic landscapes, cooler weather and copious amounts of rain are all characteristics of both of the subliminal lands. As a photographer, the landscape in Scotland is incredibly inspiring. Next time, I'll have to spend more time here.
