        You know the saying "good things come in small packages"? Turns out the most breathtaking scenery I've seen so far has been out here on the northern most tip of Scotland's mainland. It wasn't meant to be this way though, as my real intention was to visit Orkney - the islands directly north of Scotland's mainland. But since I'm not a millionaire, …

It is known as the Polychrome Cathedral, and is made of several different colours and types of stone, obviously as it has been repaired over the centuries.

        ... had to wash our hands iwith avgas. It was quite humorous "washing" our hands underneath the fuel drains of the other planes in there. At some point Andrew just took off without saying a peep, so Johannes and I were left to the task of learning by doing.
