My Plan

In July I spent 2 of the best weeks in a country I feel closer to home than any other, yes I am a proud Scotsman however Suomi, will always be home for me, its one of the only places I feel myself.  One of the great things I managed to do, besides, go canoeing, be […]

Isle of Lewis

On the 24th of July I finally managed to get to the Isle of Lewis, this is an interesting one for many reasons, mainly considering my registered campus for University is on the Isle of Lewis.  I have never been their before, I have never seen my campus.  This was no ordinary visit though, this […]
