Vlog: Jamie you will be missed! Plus 4,000 miles on the bike

First of all speaking about one of my best friends who passed away. Jamie, I will never forget you! You was a very, very big part of my life!

At long, last done 4,000 miles of cycling this year. Oh and I got the bridge number wrong! It was not 17 or 27. Turned out it was bridge #18 on Bourne to Saxby railway line

What is going on? Not posted a single photo this month!

What is going on? Not posted a single photo of myself this month! Just not been feeling it, at all this month. Since one of my best of my best mates passed away. Just not really been in best place. He was only 40, which is just, way, way to young to die! Jamie, you will always be very much missed! xx

Falkirk Wheel, The Kelpies and The Forth Bridge

Yet another fun filled day in Scotland. Today along with Neil and Jamie (thanks to Jamie for driving), we went to see The Falkirk Wheel, The Kelpies and The Forth Bridge. Neil and myself have both seen the Falkirk Wheel before. It was James first time! Then we drove to see The Kelpies. I really liked them. Don’t think Jamie and Neil was a fun of them.

Then we drove down the M9 to South Queensferry. So we could go and look at The Forth Bridge. In all my years of living in Scotland, I have never been The Forth Bridge. Been on the road bridge near to it. But till now, never been right next to it! Till today that is!

We also had a very nice meal while at South Queensferry at a place called The Railbridge Bistro. If you are ever in the area and looking for somewhere to eat. I would check it out!

 Forth Bridge

I had so much fun in Scotland, already making a list of places and things, I want to do when I am next up!

Had a great day driving to Oban!

I had great fun driving up to Oban today! I went up with two friends. Neil and Jamie. We left Killearn around 11:00am and did not get to Oban, till gone 2:15pm.

Would have got there sooner, if we had not taken a wrong turn! Oh well these things happen. We did not mind that much, since still got many good photos on the wrong road, before turning around. Just meant we only had 1 hour in Oban. Since I had to be back home by 6pm! To go and see my bother and his wife in Glasgow in the evening.

Also can’t believe for the third day in the row it’s not rained! What is going on??
