I've made it a habit to bring Italo Calvino's book Invisible Cities with me when I travel. I have never actually finished the book (the magic feels like it will fade away if you do that, so the last few entries in the book have been left unread), but it's a collection of impressions and descriptions of the places travelled to by Marco Polo.

First stop was the Scottish Wool shop, where we loaded up on scarves and blankets made in Scotland. Before heading off to adventure we had lunch in the famous Elephant House, basking in ...

... only us Scots could ******** our way into such a lucrative tourist attraction!' Speaking of Alister, my final day in Scotland was spent in his home town, St Andrews, with him as a personal guide. It says much of his character that our first stop was a pub, though somewhat disappointingly he only had a pint of water! Besides that, the main attraction was a walk across the Swilcan Burn Bridge, and down the fairways of the old course! Well known British golfer (not to ...
