Creating Art & Sharing Love Since 2009


I don't know much about politics, much less international economy ... My intent here is not talk about the intentions of Scotland's separation, because that choice is up only to them (the Scottish people) - who by the way have already chosen.
Particularly I think they made the right choice and will earn more together as a UNITED Kingdom.
But I also think that it is their nature to fight for their freedom ideals and if it wasn't the spectacle of democracy this decision could have been easily achieved with a typical battle of the thirteenth century led by none other than William Wallace :)

Pic I took from the National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh

What I want to leave record here are pictures of the beautiful place that are the Highlands ... On a visit to Edinburgh I saw and felt a little bit of what it is the "land of the misty cloud, land of the tempest loud, land of the proud and brave, land of the free ".

An Unexpected Journey - feeling like a Hobbit :)

 In the middle of the ruins of a gothic Abbey on The Palace of Holyroodhouse -
Her Majesty The Queen's official residence in Scotland
(one of the most beautiful and magical places I've ever been)

If you like historical cities, medieval legends and gothic architecture you must go there!
And for more inspiration...
