Nicola, Pete, Lola and Nell want to travel the world with a difference. We hope to get a taste of many countries without adding to climate change (with needless emissions from aeroplanes) or having to waste hours of holiday time in airport terminals. We hope our adventures inspire you to take a Grand Tour of your neighbourhood. This post is from Lola
We just walked a bit of the West Highland Way (we did five miles, the whole is 95 miles from Glasgow to Fort William)... Mummy said it would be flat but it was very hilly so I got very tired and hungry. I saw lots of black slugs, they are slimey to pick up. We saw the lochan (small, wild lake) where King Robert the Bruce's sword was supposed to have been thrown. I am almost as tall as that sword (I know this because there was an engraving of the sword on a rock nearby). Scotland is very different to London. It's so calm and peaceful and very, very green. I am starting to see colours now: purple (heather, foxgloves and thistles) and yellow (buttercups, broom and gorse). It's also got a good chip shop at Tyndrum - the Real Food cafe. We liked Greg's tip about the station cafe at Crianlarich too, yum.
