Our friends Finisterre have removed the beautiful Baloo a few nights. Able to sleep 6 and settled in Derby, he was the perfect bus to collect from Scotland to Scotland en route.
We went on in anticipation of perfect waves, empty beaches and camping spots just off the beaten track in our blue van named Baloo.
Our journey has been mapped out to explore the northern highlands of Scotland and to sail a week across the coast at the end of September. There were 9 of us, some had tents and the others were planning to sleep in Baloo.
What I did not expect was the vast empty beaches and the perfect places to free them. Those who knew the Scottish oceans were so clear that I could see the sand under the water from the van.
Waking up was easy, making coffee and tea for everyone, while others simply took away the double beds to make room for breakfast. We felt free.
Taking the winding roads along the edges of cliffs, lakes, and lakes. Enjoy the landscape. When we saw a perfect place to make a few photos, we brew fresh coffee and serve it through the hatch – a joke that we were a coffee shop or on other occasions served the hatch as our bar, handing over beers to those outside while we enjoyed the sunset / surrounding area.
On rainy days we would drive to waterfalls and wait for a break in the weather to climb to the top. Fortunately, rain showers seemed to last a few minutes until the sun started to rise again.
On one evening during a cozy dinner in Baloo, the wind progressed. We knew bad weather was coming, so we closed the windows and played some cards. Unaware of how wild the wind and rain had gotten, we made our beds and went to sleep when the others went to their tents. Tired of the long days and the night, I barely noticed that the door opened dramatically while the others went to bed.
