      Internet!! woot woot!     I am currently typing this sitting in the living room at granddad's house. I have managed to drag Granddad into the age of technology. After months of being in a technological black hole and only getting little snippets of internet on the road in and out of Kirkwall everyday and weeks of waiting for the WiFi installation, I have internet!! It has been quiet the week all in all. We got the router on Monday through the ...

      ... to leave anything on the plate, so good. I start my day at the gym and Perce with his walk on the upper outside deck which is quite cold. I did try it for a lap and decided that it was too uncomfortable. A lot of people do it though. The gym is well equipped and as I go early there aren't many people about.

      Perhaps the reason for its being so relaxed with humans around is the Fulmar's formidable last line of defence. As they spend long periods of time at sea on the wing, they store a ...

      Hi, Ho. Where's Hoy!

      A travel blog entry by rnjemk on Jun 19, 2014


      ... the isle of Hoy, a half-hour by ferry to the southwest of Stromness. Our intention had been to walk out to the Old Man of Hoy, a 450' high seastack, and to the Dwarfie Stane, the only rock-cut tomb on the British Isles. As it transpired, a typical Orkneys' summer seafog came in and we spent two days hardly able to see the end of our nose - and the fog was wet!! A character-forming experience, one might say. We gave up the idea of attempting to see the Old Man, but did walk to ...
