A Weekend In Shetland

Most people would think it is insane to spend only a weekend in Shetland as it’s so remote. But, if you’re based in a major city in Scotland and you’ve always wanted to go, it’s completely reasonable to spend a weekend in Shetland! That being said, Shetland often seems like the sort of place people only go if they really want to, but it’s a lovely and unique place to visit even if you haven’t heard of it before. Shetland is where Nordic and Celtic traditions really come to a head. It’s the northernmost point in Scotland, and an incredibly beautiful, relaxing, and cozy place to be!

The Dangers of Tinder Dating

So. I’ve covered a LOT about dating in my Carrie Bradshaw series. Since moving to self-hosting, I’ve been going back and editing everything. One theme stuck out, the dangers of Tinder dating.

As it’s such a hot spot among tourists, there are no shortages of tour companies who have day tours running from Dublin, Belfast, Galway, etc. They drive you to the Cliffs, give you an hour to explore through the Visitor Centre. It could be a bit underwhelming for those of you who have been dreaming of visiting them for years.

Those who love the outdoors, and who want to see the iconic views might be disappointed.Unfortunately, it’s hard to see the version of the cliffs you see online from the Visitor’s Centre because you’re right on top of the main chunk of the Cliffs. But most people don’t know they have an alternative, well here it is:
