I hope you’ve had a fantastic week. I certainly have. I’ve managed to nab myself a wee trial shift for a job in The Piper’s Tryst at The National Piping Centre Scotland, and here’s hoping that wee trial turns into an official gig! I’ve got all my fingers, toes and all sorts crossed, and I’m hoping you do too!
I apologize that I having been keeping my Instagram round ups regular recently. The honest answer as to why this is that I am a terrible blogger who seems completely inept at keeping to a blogging schedule, and I sincerely apologize for this nonsense. I have, however, decided to take Wandering Scotland far more seriously than I have been, and I’ve already got myself a nice wee Editorial Calendar set up and written out, and I’m getting better at my social media scheduling. Huzza!
Anyway, onto the real reason for this post; my favourite Instagrams of this week are…
Photo by @max.lowe of friend @yusofine diving into the crystal clear water of the coast of Komodo National Park, as our floating home the Al Isra sits at anchor beyond. Some memories seem more like dreams than others. Sailing through the pristine wild that was the northeast Indonesian archipelago on the double masted wooden Pinace, Al Isra was one of those.
I love this post on the National Geographic Adventure page. It seems so magical, almost like a dream. As if the girl is a mermaid or sea-nymph swimming around a pirate ship floating in the distance. It inspires quite a romantic notion, does it not?
I have some truly talented friends, do I not? This snap was taken by my friend Steph on a walk through the English countryside, and is just fabulous. To be honest, most of Steph’s Instagram posts are pretty fabulous, she has skill with the camera.
Wanderlust strikes again! I’m off too Portofino, bye guys.
Then maybe Verona. Yeah, I’m off, see ya!
Then again, Switzerland’s looking pretty good right now too. I love the way the Instagram features a lighting trick I love that’s especially common in Scotland; bright sunshine but a background of dark, ominous rain-clouds. I think it just makes the colours so much brighter, doesn’t it?
