Segwaying around Blair Atholl

As part of a hen weekend away in Pitlochry, I finally got to do something I had always dreamed but never knew was accessible to general public folk like me. That thing was Segwaying. I don’t mean these little boards that spoiled rich kids on YouTube are scooting around on, no I mean the big chunky two-wheeled vehicles with handles for stability.

I’ve been lucky enough to have travelled to some amazing parts of the world with my boyfriend, and yes it isn’t always glorious. I can honestly say we very rarely argue, in fact I don’t think we’ve ever argued.

Silence in the Killing Fields, Cambodia

I contemplated not writing this post. Then I thought about why the The Killing Fields is actually open to the public, yes maybe it brings in tourists and generates revenue for the country, but it also keeps the memories alive of those affected my the Khmer Rouge, and to remind the world the effect such a group had on society in the 1970’s.
