Catherine leaves Orkney

A travel blog entry by catherinemoldau


I'm heading down to Sussex to stay with my aunt Monica and then on to visit friends in London where I will meet Michael on Saturday at his sister Maya's. Bye bye my beautiful Orkney. My home to which we will return in 14 months time.

Time to go walkabout ...

Go East

A travel blog entry by muggie


... out later was Marney and she 'chooses' people to walk with out to the tomb.

Obviously the original buildings are very treasured and you cannot walk on/among them, just view them from close by, but they have constructed a model of one of the houses for visitors to walk ...

Day 2 - Orkney Island

A travel blog entry by freedomandpeace


... my laundry bag, only to find it out of business. I didnt want to haul around my dirty laundry bag all over the place, including into the cathedral, so I had to walk 15 mins back to drop and off, then back into town again.
