United Kingdom, August 2015

For the last couple days the weather in Vienna was cold, wet, and windy. This reminded me of my trip to Scotland in the summer and the fact that I still have not posted any pictures here. Many of these I have already put on Instagram or Tumblr, but I wanted to all have them here on my on server.

Together with my friend Karin we bought Interrail tickets and on the first day we started from Linz to Cologne.

One of the places we wanted to visit was the Isle of Skye, because there is absolutely no reliable public transport going to the Isle we had to book a bus tour.
