Subject: from Pitlochry, of all places...
this is the last place i'd thought i'd be emailing from. we left Arbroath about three hours ago (after much stress over the packing of the luggage into the vans), and we're at a pit stop in this little town in the Highlands called Pitlochry. and they had an internet cafe, of all things, so here i am.
the van ride has pretty much sucked so far. i'm very unhappy, and my ass hurts like hell. the seats on the van are placed ridiculously close to each other, so i can't even actually fit my legs into the space provided. my knees are too long, apparently. so i have to sit with my legs halfway out in an aisle. and the roads we're driving on aren't exactly highways, they're little curvy one lane roads going along the mountains that are occasionally blocked by sheep. plus i think Sharyn is having some problems driving stick, because there's a constant stop and start and very hard braking, which makes me nauseous.
i know i shouldn't complain, but i'm really bitchy right now. just got caught walking in a rainstorm along the roads here, and i am soaked. yuck.
anyway, supposedly we're supposed to arrive on the Isle of Skye by early evening.
hopefully i'll be in better spirits then.
