For many years, we've traveled to places around the world which intrigue us. Capturing photos, and always memories, this blog is our attempt to inspire others to pursue their dreams.

Thursday, August 25th, Kirkwall, Orkney Islands
Wednesday and Thursday, we traveled from Reykjavik, Iceland to Kirkwall, Orkney Islands. Normally, it would have only taken one day. But the flight from Iceland got into Edinburgh, Scotland about ten minutes after the flight to Orkney departed. So we stayed the night just outside of Edinburgh.
The photos today show us coming in on the train to Edinburgh, spending the day visiting the Royal Botanical Gardens, and then using the tram to the airport.
We're now in Kirkwall, arriving a couple of days early, and we'll explore the town before we meet up with our archeological contacts on Sunday to begin our ruin adventure.
