Holidays


#81

Nah, do it properly:


#82

That’s a definite plan but a few years away.
Want to do a couple of weeks touring italy.

For now we are flight and bus types.


#83

We have booked our holiday to Slovenia. We ae going to be staying at Lake Bohinj, then Lake Bled, a quick whizz over the Russian Road to Bovec, few days by the sea at Piran, finished off by a few days in Ljubljana. All looks fairly interesting.

It is very likely to be a slow whizz over the Russian Road tbh. Passenger a bit on the nervous side for that sort of thing.


#84

A nice few days up at Linn of Dee last week

from top of Morven looking NE

Glen Quoich

East entry to the Laraig Ghru


#85

A lovely reminder of my last trip to that part of the world in October, when I was treated to views of the area from 10,000 feet in a glider.


#86

From Aboyne? 10,000 feet is pretty good - I see that they claim good wave soaring there.

Need to go again before Nicola closes the border

Jealous. When I was planning on doing that trip it was mostly out of service after a landslip.

Interesting video on YouTube about fixing it.
