Off to the highlands for a week tomorrow. I’ll fly into Edinburgh, immediately escape the festival madness there and spend a night or two in Glasgow which is just a 1.5h bus ride away. The following two nights will be on the isle of Islay and after that some place else.
Today I paid Hamburg a short visit to get my visa for Thailand. What a pain, they changed the regulations about one-way flights and the lady working at the consulate was just plain rude (German of course, not Thai). She had mercy in the end and I got my passport stamped.
