PhotoHunt: Triangle

This is no ordinary Triangle shaped road sign . . .

I took this photo near the small and quaint town of Arisaig. After exploring around the beach and sand dunes a bit, I drove further down the road where I walked along the very beautiful Silver Sands of Morar. The sand was so soft, I felt like I was walking on clouds. Scotland is so awesome!

As a long time Southern Californian, I had the best time driving the near empty roads in the Highlands. The views everywhere I drove was just gorgeous. No concrete freeways, no smog or tall high rises to block the beautiful sky and rather than being confronted by inpatient LA drivers rushing here and there I came across groups of sheep in no hurry to get anywhere and so neither was I.

My blog friends and fellow Slow Travelers have taught me the value in taking it slow while traveling so I can enjoy a more deeper experience with the cool places that I visit. Blog friend, Menehune, wrote a beautiful Post about "Hope" in her Synchronicity Blog. She said that "we need to live each day fully". I am trying to do that more and more in my life as well as in my travels. But every once in awhile it's nice to have a reminder of that valuable life philosophy from our friends. So today, this is no ordinary triangle shaped road sign.

  1. That sign really pops next to the beautiful Scottish landscape. Slowing down is no hardship in such a beautiful place. Happy weekend!

  2. Hi Annie, thanks so much for your comments. I agree...the blue sky and all that green and clean air. I miss it. I felt so relaxed there. Happy weekend to you too...

  3. Such great advice. We really do need to slow down and enjoy our surroundings and life. It will pass to quickly.

    And a nice shot of the triangle. I agree with Annie - it really stands out in the photo.

  4. I agree, Scotland seems to be a gorgeous place to take it slow. Great shot and a great take of this week's theme. Hope you enjoyed a wonderfully 'slow' weekend.

  5. Thanks for sharing your photo and a good philosophy to follow.
    I can't help but wonder if I'll get as excited about a road trip in a more populated area as I do here in Australia. There really is something about driving along empty roads.

  6. Hi Everyone, thanks so much for your comments.

    Marta, when I compare how I use to travel to now, I honestly can't compare. It is so different and it is all for the better. I see more, I mean really see more, I remember more of my trips and I feel so relaxed. Although I am going around sightseeing it is still very relaxing to me.

    M, Scotland was really gorgeous. It is a really slow pace lifestyle in a pretty setting. I had fun taking it slow there which is something I don't get to do in my normal everyday life.

    Maya, going to Scotland especially in November where I found myself with maybe only 1 or two locals walking the beaches and driving the roads was such a different and wonderful experience for me. I can understand why you love camping and finding places where there are no other campers around. There's something very special about being somewhere with nothing but the natural sounds of nature. I think that's what I enjoyed most about the highlands. It was amazing.

    Thanks everyone. Have a great week.
