Eilean Donan and Skye Day 1

After waking up in our comfortably great bed and breakfast, we had breakfast made by Sue, the wife and co-owner of Spean Lodge.

They offered many more options where my mom had scrambled eggs with salmon and my stepdad tried their… Continue reading Eilean Donan and Skye Day 1

Reykjavik Itinerary Part 2

Day 2 Today was my ultimate day for hitting the tourist spots. First was the renowned Blue Lagoon! It's a geothermal spa and its silica content is supposed to be great for your skin.
