This blog is about my travels. At home in New Zealand, in other parts of Oceania, North, Central and South America and in Europe.
From Edinburgh I took the train up to Aberdeenshire to stay with a friend at her cottage.
While I was there, we went for a walk around a beautiful lake in the Cairngorms, a mountain range on the estate of Balmoral - which is owned by the Queen! Ordinary people are also allowed to wander around in it, a bit like a national park in New Zealand. It had been predicted to rain that day, but instead we got a lovely day.
As we wandered around the lake we came across a hunting lodge - this was built for Queen Victoria and her family back in the day. As we wandered by a picturesque little boat house, clouds had started to arrive. Thankfully we were back in the car by the time the first drops of rain started to patter on the windscreen.
I am a traveller from New Zealand. My blog is to inform friends and family about my adventures. I hope you enjoy it!
