Travel Tuesday: inside Fairy Glen




Fairy glen has more than one funny-shaped hill. This looks like a defense wall and a moat for protecting a medieval castle. The tradition says it’s built by the little folk also known as elves living in this glen (valley). On the other hand, geologists say, it’s created by glaciers. Decide your own, which explanation you take. Either way, enjoy the beauty of the valley and respect nature.

Leave nothing but footprints (without harming plants) and take nothing but photos and memories!

Take care!

Travel Tuesday: welcome to the Fairy Glen


This is Castle Ewen. Not a real castle or ruins of a former man-made building. Instead, it’s a rock. But, shaped like a tower of a castle.

Travel Tuesday: even sheep build roads

You can see horizontal lines at the side of the central hill in the image. These are sheep roads. Sheep like it easy and they find the easiest way to climb a hill. Over time, these small roads appear, where sheep regularly roam.

When hiking in an area where sheep roam freely, like in Iceland or Scotland, and you want to go up- or downhill, look out for these sheep roads and follow them. Sheep have found the easiest way to walk uphill or downhill because they are kind of lazy. So, they try to avoid unnecessary efforts. In this image, all the roads are in horizontal directions, but you can also find them leading up and down.

Monochrome Monday 7-44

This image is from June 2010. I can’t imagine, this is already more than 10 years ago. Thursday next week, I’m going to show you an image of the cathedral taken a little bit earlier on my way to this location and the Thursday after a color version of this image. Stay tuned!

Take care!
