Road trip, day 3. First we go check out the Old Man of Storr.
Then we went down to the southern part of the island to go on a hike to the Faerie Pools. This was something I found on Pinterest years ago, and is one of the main reasons I wanted to go to Skye. I can’t believe how beautiful and sunny it was, I swear we were the luckiest girls in the world.
After a long day on the road, we drove back to Portree and found a new bed and breakfast to lay our heads. Then we went into town to the bar and got solidly drunk (I needed it after driving for 3 days straight!). While at the bar, we met a volcanolist (to which I immediately made Spock/Vulcan jokes… geeeeeeeek). We also met a group of Exxon moguls from Norway, but unfortunately none of them wanted to be our sugar daddies (JOKES). The bartender, a man with one of the most ridiculous moustaches I’ve ever seen, gave me one of the greatest quotes I’ve ever heard. He just got back from traveleing for a couple years, and he said, “I combined my two favorite hobbies, traveling and drinking.” Love that. He convinced me to try some whisky, and I’m currently obsessed with Edradour, from the smallest distillery in Scotland. Of course I have to like the most rare of the whiskys…damn me.
