On the Way to Scotland

These are a few iPhone snaps of a recent journey to the Isle of Skye in Scotland: about 5’000 kilometers by train and ferry via Cologne, Rotterdam, Hoek van Holland, Harwich, London, Inverness, Brussels, and Basle.

Greenwich prime meridian, and Cologne Cathedral.

This time we took the ferry from Holland to England, in contrast to a previous trip to the Outer Hebrides in Scotland when we travelled via Calais and Dover. The Stenaline ferry conveniantly crosses during the night. Also, it’s much easier to travel by train with an Interrail ticket in Germany than in France because of their TGV contigents and the centralistic train system via Paris.
