Happy 10 year anniversary to Nick and myself!

Very big happy 10 year anniversary to Nick and myself! Yes BTW we’re just very good friends! Lot’s of people, think he’s my boyfriend when he’s not!

During the 10 years of knowing him, we’re done some truly great stuff together. Been a good number of cycles together, been to Scotland a number of times. Walked up both Ben Vorlich and Ben Nevis. Also of course, had him wearing Lycra and wetsuits a LOT!! 🙂

Vlog: Nick and myself climb Ben Vorlich (Loch Lomond)

Sorry just playing around with some new editing software. Been using Vegas Movie Studio HD Platinum 11.0 for a long time! So about time, I moved to something new! So just paid for CyberLink PowerDirector 15 after reading some great reviews about it! So just wanting to see, what fun things I can do with it!

Nick and myself climbed Ben Vorlich (Loch Lomond)

Well the first tour of our Scotland tour, could not have got off to a better start! Today Nick and myself climbed Ben Vorlich (Loch Lomond)! Making it the first ever Munro that Nick has climbed! My second one, the first being Ben Lomond, which I’ve done twice!

We could not have picked a better day for it! The weather was sunny and for most of the climb, nice and warm! Till we got to the very top of Ben Vorlich that is! When it was windy, which made it a bit on the cold side!

Ben Vorlich is 943 metres, making it the 229 highest Munro in Scotland out of 282! So maybe not the tallest! But it was still a great climb! And some great views from the top!

I will now leave you with some photos…
