To the North! Et in Orcadia ego

Off to Orkney on Saturday with Monsieur Bolley.  To the St Magnus Fest we go – hoots mon. Getting the train at 7.30 from Euston, changing at Carlisle and Edinburgh and then the ferry from Aberdeen to Kirkwall. We arrive in Orkney after a six-hour ferry crossing.  It is very, very far North and closer to Norway than London.  It is the Land of the Midnight Sun and we will be there for the Summer Solstice. It will be a journey.
