Kolarbyn Eco Lodge is the main reason I booked this trip to Sweden. When I heard Nick was going to be playing a few shows here I started researching the country and as soon as I found these fairy huts in the forest, I was sold.
This morning when my alarm went off at 2am Los Angeles time, I made a promise to myself that the next time I book a plane ticket, I will spend the extra $30 on an easier flight plan rather than worrying about the bottom of the barrel, cheapest deal I can find. Anyway..

I love this city! Cologne has most definitely been added to my list of favorite places that I’ve been lucky enough to explore. I was fortunate to have been there on a perfectly clear day, and the colors that were brought out by the sun were incredible.

On my most recent work trip to Europe, I chose to stay an extra day and explore London. This was only the 2nd day I’ve spent in the city, the last one being many years ago. I figured I would re-acclimate by sticking to the major sights and experiences the city has to offer.
Here are just a few more photos of Edinburgh to wrap things up:
Scot Monument. My favorite.
The birthplace of Alexander Graham Bell, inventor of the telephone.
The memorial for my favorite childhood (true) story, Greyfriar’s Bobby.
I fall for cities and Edinburgh was my first love. My grama was born here, so it’s tradition in my family to make the pilgrimage to Scotland at a very young age. It’s the most special place I’ve ever been and no matter where I travel to, I compare everywhere else to here.
Scotland is a special destination for Nick and I because it’s the first country we traveled to together. I was brought here when I was 1, and again when I was in 5th grade.
Scotland is an incredible country; the scenery is unrivaled and the history is rich, but one of the things that really makes this place what it is, is the people!! The Scottish people are the nicest, most hospitable, and genuinely helpful group of people I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting.
Our B&B in Drumnadrochit was amazing. It was about 4 miles outside of the main village and on the very top of a hill. The views were perfection and our hosts were the nicest of people (not surprising as Scottish Hospitality is the best in the world).
