Sounds, Smells and Statistical Significance

A travel blog entry by rnjemk

Getting around in the Northern Isles can be a bit of a challenge. The islands are all linked by the Orkney Ferries services; however, some islands are only serviced a couple of times a week, and sailing times and routing are often changed because of tides, cargo and weather.

Again, we were looking out onto ...
