A Trip to Oban

2 Feb

For my 24th birthday we travelled to Kinlochleven to do some ice climbing. I enjoy rock climbing but found ice climbing a lot more challenging, I think it will take a while for me to master the technique! Following the ice climbing we stayed in Oban overnight in a lovely sea view room. We enjoyed the spa and a fantastic 6 course tasting menu. The next door we explored Oban. The photographs below are taken from the McCaig Tower a prominent landmark. After lunch in Oban we began the 4.5 hour journey home to Cumbria. On the way home I spotted Kilchurn Castle illuminated by the sunshine and we stopped on the roadside to take some photographs!

Spinalonga

23 Jan

Having read the book ‘The Island’ by Victoria Hislop I was particularly keen to visit Spinalonga. Although I did enjoy my visit, I was participating in an organised tour and felt I did not have long enough to look around. Below are some of the photographs I took.

Agios Nikolaos, Crete

We spent a few hours in Agios Nikolaos, wandering through the narrow, bustling streets. I found the lake to be particularly picturesque.

When staying in Koutouloufari a wonderful little hillside village in Crete we decided to visit the capital Heraklion. We traveled to Heraklion by bus and spent a day exploring the city.

Whilst visiting the Saklikent Gorge we had the chance to walk a small section of the gorge before tubing down the river, which was fantastic!

Fethiye, Turkey

On the day we decided to take the Dolmus to Fethiye it was particularly windy, the sea was incredibly rough and caused a lot of small fishing boats to overturn or sink as can be seen from the photographs.
