Great events are often foreshadowed

This will be my last entry ... as a free man.
Fittingly, I use it to post another image from the trip that symbolically ended my bachelorship.
I also uploaded even more images from the Scotland trip to galleries over at colors · and · contrasts.

The three sisters

We went as far as Scotland, but here they were already waiting for us: the three greek sisters!

Faces of scottland

Two weeks ago today, I was sitting with Phil and Michael in a pub in the middle of Scottland eating burgers and drinking ale - we had been talking and dreaming of such a trip for a long time. My expected transition into a married man was a welcome reason to finally do this trip. Among other things (see below ;), we admired the beautiful nature of scotland, which is enriched by the dramatic and rapid changes in weather. The three pictures below were taken within two minutes looking into different directions from the same spot. I don't know whether this will help to bring the sun-craving greek ladies here eventually, but I can always dream ;)

Scottish light and scottish tree


As you might have guessed, we didn't only come to scotland for the nature ... We didn't miss the opportunity to visit some destilleries and to sip one or two whiskies during our trip. We had a particularly great evening in a small room belonging to a restaurant in Dufftown. The room contained only a bar, one table, three chairs (what a coincidence!), hundreds of whiskies and a bar man who could tell story after story about all things whisky.
Three happy bachelors nosing, tasting and discussing a rather substantial fraction of the bar! Thanks for the great trip, guys!
