Nothing screams Italy more than gelato. It’s ubiquitous throughout the country.
Binoculars were the only thing missing from our highly accommodating room at Loch Ness Lodge. After all, our suite offered a stunning bay-window view of Loch Ness from where we could spend hours casting our eyes upon the shimmering water in search of the legendary monster.
From the safety of our four-wheel drive vehicle, we never tired of watching lions, cheetahs and leopards in Africa. This cuddly lion pair in the Masai Mara barely even noticed us.
After a nerve-racking, five-hour drive from Edinburgh to the Isle of Skye, the last thing we felt like doing the next day was spending more time in the car navigating the island's Trotternish Peninsula.
All I can say is muster up the energy to reignite your driving mojo. You will not regret it, especially if you are lucky enough to see it on a day with spurts of sunshine like we did.
To give you some perspective, our trip from Edinburgh had its challenges. It took us almost an hour to make it out of town thanks to some tricky roundabouts and an inept navigator (yes, that's me) cross-referencing multiple maps while using a GPS system. Not a good idea.
However, the views along the way made up for the struggle. What a surprise to find snow-capped mountains during our spring visit.
Hotel Alfonso XIII was our shining beacon during our stay in Seville. Recently renovated and centrally located, the 1929-built property made us feel right at home and inspired us to further explore Seville’s Moorish roots.
