As I'm writing this having just left a campsite it might seem as though not much has changed in the last week. In fact, this has been a week full of extremes and experiences. We have travelled over 900 miles, and The Husband has clocked up over 24 hours of driving.
We have visited the thriving city of Edinburgh and then camped at Glenbrittle in Skye, looking out over the Atlantic Ocean and feeling as though we were on the edge of the world. There was a four poster suite for our anniversary followed by a night in our tent seeking refuge from the flies and then the rain.
I have worn a dress and high heels to dine on a tasting menu, sharing a bottle of wine and also had beans and bread out of a mess tin wearing walking boots and waterproofs. We have had a beautiful afternoon tea with champagne, and eaten fish and chips out of the wrapper sat in the tent.There has been glorious sunshine, torrential rain (just as we were walking Millie) and blustery winds that threatened to take the tent off its pegs.
The views have been incredible, vast expanses of water and towering peaks filling the skyline. In turn I have felt very small and very humbled.
It has, occasionally, felt like an endurance test, especially when we needed to shelter from the elements in our rather small tent with The Husband, myself and the dog. We have laughed rather than cried though and thinking back on the last week I remember lots of fun, adventures and I am glad we are lucky enough to have a few more days to go.
