Scotland & London, a year late

This time last year, I was traipsing around Scotland. I was there on a work trip, with a two-day trip to London tacked onto the end. A work trip typically means long nights, but the up side is that I can usually find time during the day to explore.

Here’s a summary of that trip in photos.

Welcome to Peterhead, Scotland, one of the biggest fishing ports in Europe.

Peterhead is the easternmost point in Scotland.

A banner in Peterhead announcing the event we were there for, the Celebration of Hope with Will Graham. Somewhere around the corner was a restaurant called Lettuce Eat Healthy where the owner gave us birthday cake.

The cutest post office I’ve ever seen. I wish I’d had something to mail.

Atop a rock.

A typical street full of character.

Cruden Bay, about 26 miles north of Aberdeen.

Some of my co-workers posing in front of Slains Castle. Somewhere on the other side were university students throwing water balloons at each other.

That’s me on the edge!

Not sure whose boat that was …

My phone couldn’t capture the incredible sunrise the day we left, but I tried anyway.

I think I’d like to go back.

Now onto London!

In front of Buckingham Palace. Honestly, not as elaborate as I’d imagined, but that’s what TV does to you. Still beautiful, though it was a shame we missed the guards.

Taking the tube to Buckhurst Hill.

It was a work trip, remember? Cicely and I grabbed a couple of props and took over the UK office for the 20 seconds it took to get this picture. (We actually did do a full day’s work.)

I mean, what’s a trip to London without a picture of a phone booth? I won’t tell you how many times I tried to get just the right photo.

I think I took this on the way to Piccadilly Circus.

Hope to see you again someday, Ben.
