So exciting having our first visitors in Stockholm! Hannah and Chris came to see us for the weekend and we started the trip by visiting Gamla Stan, or Old Town, and sampling some whisky at the Ardbeg Embassy!
A couple of weeks after turning in my thesis, I needed to head to Brussels to defend it. After a lot of preparation to be able to present and answer any questions they may possibly have – it’s over! I’m finished! No more classes, no more papers, no more exams, done!
Day Six was our last day in Scotland before heading back home. We started the day with a coffee and breakfast from Riverhill Coffee Bar. I finally tasted the Empire Biscuit – a cookie I had seen everywhere during the trip – and it was so delicious!
Day Two we made our way from Glasgow to Kennacraig for the ferry to Port Ellen on the Isle of Islay. Before reaching Kennacraig, we stopped at Loch Goil and at the Fyne Ales Brewery for lunch and a tasting.
