Our second day in Scotland was a long one. As p previously posted, we spent the first part of the day at the Urquhart castle and then we headed into town for lunch and more exploring. We checked out the Loch Ness Monster museum which was completely dumb. Don't waste your money if you visit. Haha! But the rest of the day was beautiful sightseeing and shopping in Inverness. Scotland Aldi grocery is THE BEST! Missing the food there a lot lately. Missing the misty rain and missing the forest. I've had a tough time looking through the photos as of late cause it seems like no matter how hard I try, I start to tear up. There's so much joy in exploring new places. I feel so blessed to have experienced a trip like this one. I grew up with a dream of visiting Scotland knowing full well that such a dream might never pan-out. But I've realized something. Going places and experiencing new things seems SO daunting because a heap of money is always involved and that sucks. But if you want it bad enough and are willing to cut back on other non-essential things (going to the movies, daily starbucks runs, etc.), it is very doable. I was determined to go once we discussed it seriously. And not one penny spent was regrettable.
