It’s not often I travel to the same place twice. Part of the reason I love traveling is that I enjoy discovering somewhere new every time. But sometimes a destination is so special that I can’t help going back. One such location is the Scottish Hebrides. After an amazing week sailing in the Hebrides last year, my friends and I booked ourselves in for the same week this year. So I’m off again for 7 days of sailing in the Scottish Hebrides.
“It’s a beautiful day,” a man says as we pull up to the dock. “Feels like California!” I beam. “I’m from California!” I cry, throwing my hands in the air in celebration. And it really does feel like home. Which surprises me, since I’m in Scotland and I didn’t expect to spend a week sailing in the Scottish Hebrides without seeing a single cloud in the sky.
