Nestled at the foot of a pine-covered hill by Loch Tay is a picturesque village of Kenmore in the beautiful county of Perthshire, where I went to visit a very good friend in August. The idyllic atmosphere welcomed me with a gentle wind that caressed my cheeks and stroked my hair like an affectionate mother would do to her darling child. The accommodating environment captivated my heart and soul.
Getting to this tranquil place, we drove through the Scottish highlands of Perthsire. The road to Kenmore was a rugged terrain with a breath-taking view of heather-covered hills. We passed by pristine lakes that reflected the lush meadows and the pine trees.

We drove for five hours around the high lands passing by a few lochs. There was a point where the winding road ahead looked smaller than one foot wide and it was a steep drive. Luckily there was no other car than ours.
That was just a tiny part of Scotland. I can’t wait to go back and explore the whole country. A profuse thanks goes to my friends Te Duane and Kuya Paul for the unforgettable trip and their generous hospitality. May your kindness be repaid a hundredfold, over and over.
My say to the Scottish Referendum
Finally, before I end this post, I would like to express my great admiration to the Scottish people for the kind of respect they showed for each other over the result of yesterday’s Independent Scottish Referendum.
