If you haven't been, you should totally go. Here's how:
- Fly to London
- Connect to Glasgow
- Take a train to Oban
- Take a ferry to Mull
- Take a bus across Mull
- Take another ferry to Iona
As my mother says, you really feel like you've gotten away.
And I know my city friends think I have moved to nowhere, but I am in a city of 23,000 people, on a campus of 5,000 people, with neighbors I can see from my windows in all directions.
I've been spending some time hanging out in a much smaller town lately, and I'm headed to North Country School in Lake Placid next week. I love, love, love, the quietness of not having cell phone reception all the time.
Day 19 of my month of gratitude: I am thankful for remoteness, for places without a lot of people, for opportunities to feel like I have really gotten away.
