Holiday Home Craigh Na Dun, Portree

ONE NIGHT STAY...

After the seafood dinner, our adventure began... Looking for our AirBnB in the dark up the mountains was no joke.  While driving up the hill using the GPS to lead us to the cottage, the signal went off in the middle of nowhere.  No street lights and just the car lights, Aaron managed to maneuver the car safely, yes, credit to the co-pilot beside and two more co-drivers behind the driver himself.  As for yours truly, I was snoozing once again after the heavy dinner.... I could hear voices at the back of my mind though but I was feeling kind of confident, I know we could get through this somehow.... I just have to lay back and closed my eyes.... prayerfully! 

Yes, we made it to the holiday home in the dark!  Upon entering the cottage, we were all mesmerized by the beauty and deco of the cottage called Craigh Na Dun.... someone commented that he would love to stay there for the rest of his life!!  LOL... After choosing our own rooms, (there were 3 this time), we refreshed ourselves.... by then I was wide awake and fresh.... and we had a good time relaxing by the fireplace till our eyes could no longer open....

The next morning, someone woke up early and walked around the area... First of all, all of us were thankful that nothing happened the previous night, our cottage was indeed down a slight slope... phewww... next time we better come during the broad daylight and not when it turns dark....  Other than that, the garden and the surrounding area was indeed very beautiful, just like living in a modern farmhouse, with cows, goats and chickens... just around the neighbourhood...
These greeted us in the morning!
Just like in the books Enid Blyton!
Main door leading into the house... 
Leading to the living hall... 
Living hall...
Master bedroom... 
With attached bathroom...
Two rooms similar to this... 
And a very big kitchen!
The next morning we walked around the area... 
The white cottage is where we stayed for the night... 
If opportunity arises, we would like to come here again.. and again!
With Our faithful Red Babe which faithfully carried us around for hundreds of miles....

  3. How nice! You all book a cottage all for yourself instead of staying at a bed and breakfast place. Did you all light up the fire place yourself? Is it an electrical fire place or is it one that requires fire wood?

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

Exploring The Sea Cruise Royal Caribbean

CRUISING ALONG.... Once we deposited our bags in our cabins, we had our buffet meal at the Hammerjack restaurant and exactly at 4pm, we heard a loud Horn signal...  ITS TIME TO SAIL ALONG THE PACIFIC OCEAN! And while the ship started to sail, we humans started to walk and explore.... to familarize ourselves inside the ship....  Elevators on each side of the ship....  Making my mark....  On another side....  We walked along to check out our food outlets... This Promenade Cafe  had became our regular joint .... We like to sit there enjoying our hot drinks and desserts... Free flow of food day and night.... Passing through the bars to the casino... The casino will open only when the ship is in international waters...  At one of the jackpot machines... I wonder if they are real?? But they are only $1 bundles... Then we went up to the highest floor.... The swimming deck.... Taken against the sun.... Nice sunset in the evening.... The Happy Trio!

First Day In The Royal Caribbean Cruise To Mexico

ROW ROW ROW YOUR BOAT.... gently down the sea....  Royal Caribbean, it is my second time following this giant vessel, the first time was from Singapore to Phuket, that was a very nice cruise.  So when my son mentioned that he found a good deal online, this time to Mexico, I agreed without hesitation.  Let's Go! A three nights stay with food and lodging only cost around $250 per person with at least one senior in per room.  Meals were either buffet style or fine dining, we can choose and cafes were opened 24 hours for us to rest and relax.  How not to resist... LOL...  And so here we are... just one week after landing in US, I was on the sea....  Looks small from afar...  It was a giant vessel with at least 14 floors.... On the way to embarking after Custom Clearance...  Our room for the next three nights....  Small and cosy.... And adjoining to my son's family room through a door...  The one with balcony cost a bit more...  A short briefing about safety after we checked in....
