    The Ultimate Scotland Road Trip Itinerary: 9 Days in Isle of Skye, Edinburgh, Loch Ness & More.

    United Kingdom

    Scotland has long lingered on my travel bucket list. Its grassy carpet-like fields, uncounted cascading waterfalls, stirring mountains, and craggy coastlines are pure fantasy for the landscape lover. My circular 9-day Scotland road trip itinerary involves hiring a car in the capital, Edinburgh, and driving north to Inverness, then delving deep into rugged highlands before climaxing with the fanciful Isle of Skye.

    Right off the bat, I’ll say this will be an awkward article. I’m talking about poop. This is something that affects most people in one way or another. Yep, you’re not alone. Up to 50-70% of travellers are affected by travellers’ diarrhoea (TD) at one time or another. I've tried a new medication called Travelan that helps prevent TD in 90% of cases.

    I recently tried out the Rücken Camera Backpack from BAGSMART to see if it would live up to the promise of a universal combo camera bag & all-day backpack.The Rücken is endowed with style. It would look at home on the back of a plaid-clad hipster in the big smoke, commuting on a zippy bicycle, or even hiking in the mountains. And of course, on an all-day photography walk.

    Pimsleur: My Secret Weapon to Quickly Learn a New Language

    Product Reviews

    In most countries, the locals speak enough English to help us get around. But what happens if you come across someone that doesn’t speak English, or go to a country where English isn’t really spoken? Suddenly, simple things like getting directions, ordering a meal, or paying for shopping can get pretty difficult. With Pimsleur’s language learning method, speaking a new language (or two) just became super easy and affordable.
