Vacation, all I ever wanted

D and I went on our first real vacation ever (aside from our engagement trip to Disneyland, which was a different kind of vacation). I totally let the heck go of Real Life and DID NOT STRESS. Seriously. I'm serious. The only time I felt anything close to stress is when I got a little bit of food poisoning and spent five hours puking violently. And you know what? Even THAT didn't put a damper on the trip. Pretty proud of that, because I am an anxiety master. It was a great time with great friends and I tried haggis and drank Drambuie and snuggled with Catherine's giant cat and bouldered some old barracks and I didn't even worry about my cats or my house because my Oxford BFF was on the case.

Ok, picture time:

Daniel found the Higgs boson

We drove from Edinburgh to Ullapool, and then did some aimless driving-and-exploring-wherever in both Northerly and Southish/westerly directions.

Speaking of "west"--GoT fans may be interested to know that Ullapool is located in Wester Ross. Not western. Wester. Wester Ross. I'm just going to keep saying that.

Here are comics I made on the trip! (I'm probably going to ink them with my tablet, but hopefully you can see them ok here. If you click on them, you'll probably get the full sized images, which are way bigger and easier to read.)

Peace out!
