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.

  1. You have chosen a long way round – so many changes! – to get to Orkney, so I hope all your connections work. Please don’t say “hoots mon” to anyone you meet there – although no doubt people will smile at you, you will be forever branded as a complete English prick (yes – even if you are not actually English!).
