Cycling and Sailing in Scotland – Back to Edinburgh

Cycling and Sailing in Scotland – Back to Edinburgh

Sunday, August 27, 2017 Waking up I realize that most of the people I have traveled with this past week already have left by taxi.

So far I have been fortunate as the rain always came when I were on board or was so little it was easy to ignore. Considering the
