Posting from Scotland

The past 4 days I have been staying in the beautiful Scottish countryside in a place called Inverbervie. I also visited the town of Dundee, and tried lots of local food specialties (who knew beans go really well with eggs and toast?!).


The trip was planned around one single BIG goal: climbing the tallest mountain in Scotland, the Ben Nevis – and coming back down alive. So we set out at 3 in the morning, drove for a couple of hours, and started walking at 7am.

The start of the 16km long path

Ben Nevis is the tallest mountain in the UK at 1.345 km (4400+ feet) high. It was a real struggle getting to the top, but the people walking with me were great company and the views from the summit were absolutely worth every bit of muscle pain!

The aches in my legs will go away eventually (ha, I hope!), but I will forever remember the fantastic feeling I got when reaching the top!
