A Virtual Train Ride

One of my fondest memories of my original 2004 trip to Scotland is the train ride from Thurso to Inverness, right after I'd left Orkney. I spent part of it reading 1984 by George Orwell, and was a bit nervous as I was trying (unsuccessfully in the end) to get to Glasgow in time to pick up a package. Even so, it's beautiful country, as you can see from this three and a half hour video from 2002 - before I'd ever visited the United Kingdom in the first place!

I should be posting a bit more about this particular route in the next few weeks, so stay tuned.
