What a better way to spend your Sunday, than a road trip to the English countryside with friends. I always enjoy visiting the English countryside, love the greenery, forests, cute small towns and villages that look like they came from a fairytale book, and gorgeous landscapes.
Greenery, beautiful Causeway Coast, hip cities, fisherman villages and insane natural beauty are just few of the things that make Northern Ireland. In the past Northern Ireland was most associated for its ship building and fish export, today it’s mostly associated with the Titanic and Game of Thrones. The Titanic was built in Belfast, and as for Game of Thrones, they were filmed all over Northern Ireland.
I can go on and on to list the reasons why I love Scotland, and why you should visit it. But, I think I have done enough of that in my two previous posts, that you can read here and here. Scotland is a big country so you can’t possible see everything in one short trip even two. This time I was traveling the lower parts of the Scottish Highlands and the central part.
Scotland is one of the favorite places I have ever been to. Last fall I visited Scotland (you can see my previous trip here) for the first time and I fell in love with it. So, I was really happy that I was going back to Scotland this weekend. My first stop was Edinburgh, I was mostly excited about Edinburgh since I have never been before and it seemed magnificent from what I have seen and heard. Not only were my expectations met, they were exceeded. That’s why I decided to do a separate post just for Edinburgh and another one for the Scottish highlands that I am currently exploring.
For a while now Saatchi Gallery has been on my list to dedicate a post on my blog about it. My first two attempts to visit were unsuccessful, due to private events. Today I had a third luck charm. The gallery is amongst the best galleries in the world for contemporary art. It was first opened in 1985 in an old color factory in northern London. From 2008 is relocated to its current address on Sloane Square in Chelsea. The founder is Charles Saatchi better known as the cofounder of the world famous marketing agency Saatchi & Saatchi, that devised Margaret Thatcher’s campaign against the Labour party in the 1980’s.
