Location, Location, Location.

I know I've mentioned that we live in town and on the North Sea, but I thought I should dedicate a post to our "we can't believe we actually live here" location. We live car-free* and about a 5 minute walk to everything we need to survive. Our orange carpet and lack of dishwasher and clothes dryer remind us that we're in student housing, but I think it's a fair trade.

We live on the upper left portion of the map on E Scores. My commute to work is along The Scores and takes approximately 7 minutes. Garrick? He walks about 30 seconds to the Roundel. No more can we depend on our long walk into town to keep in shape!

Although we don't have a private front or back yard, the St Andrews Cathedral ruins and North Sea views suffice just fine:

When living in a place that's as far North as Anchorage, AK, it's nice to be close to local amenities during the frigid winter months. Another bonus of our new place is that it's cheaper than our previous flat! Why? I'll never know. But I'm not going to ask questions. :)
I'm no fortune-teller, but I highly doubt that we'll ever again live in a location such as this. So, hurry up and plan your trip to Scotland!

*Please note: Although I love living car-free, driving a car when home for Christmas is going to be heavenly. :)


  1. Have I mentioned how much I love that you live in Scotland? I'm listing to a Celtic station on Pandora, and I feel like I need to pray about my jealousy right now. ;) Just started reading your blog-hope you're well my friend! -lindsey

    1. Lindsey, I love that you are listening to a Celtic station! I remember hearing you talk about your love of Scotland in college. You are welcome to visit any time!! We are doing very well and feel planted. I enjoy reading about your flight attendant adventures! All the best in 2013. :) -Andrea
