I Think I Must Be in Scotland

A long planned for trip is finally happening! After two reasonably long flights, and a very helpful taxi driver, I found myself in the center of Glasgow. It would be from here that I needed to catch a train to start my journey to my first sheep-stop.

But first, to combat jet-lag, I browsed around Glasgow a bit, seeing….

…something that is everywhere (ok, I did stop for coffee, but I had to stay awake!)

…another familiar sight, but I looked for this on purpose as I had managed to leave my card reader for my iPad at home and would not have able to do this blog!

It was now time to find the train station – which I did with a little help.

The scenery on the way from Glasgow to Oban during my 3 hour train ride was pretty amazing. Lots of lochs and gorgeous elevations.
