Cruising Loch Ness is Adventure of Lifetime

Loch Ness

Urquhart Castle, Loch Ness, Scotland

The fame or infamy of Loch Ness will always be associated with the monster said to dwell in its murky depths. Yet this extraordinary part of the world is also synonymous with the exquisite beauty and serenity of the Scottish Highlands. Whether a visitor is seeking adventure or solace for the soul, a cruise along the Caledonian Canal will provide both in equal measure.

Amaising place and photos. I need to go to England :-)

“The Prettiest Village in England”

Welcome to Castle Combe, a charming, picturesque town tucked away in Wiltshire, England, known for its tranquil atmosphere and old stone buildings.

With buildings still left from the Medieval Times, a walk through Castle Combe is like stepping back in time.There is a special place in my heart for old stone and countryside towns, and Castle Combe seems like the ideal place to let go of the world and just sink into the past.

The village website tells us:

The village houses are all of typical Cotswold type, constructed in stone with thick walls and roofs made from split natural stone tiles. The properties are many hundreds of years old and are listed as ancient monuments. Strict rules apply to preserve the beauty and character of Castle Combe for later generations to admire.

Like a trip to Old Quebec City….
But older!

The village is known for being well-kept and tidy.
