Isle of Mull, Scotland, taken on June 13, 2015

The Isle of Mull has some of the most amazing landscapes in Scotland. I rented an electric bike and cycled the top portion of the island, a journey that took 8 hours but was very, very worth the time and effort. At one point I felt like I was climbing a hill for more than an eternity without a summit to be seen and I was running out of breath while all of a sudden, I was there – at the top. Of course I had to take time to rest and enjoy the scenery. A luxurious breath of fresh air later, I was ready and on the bike again – time to freewheel down the hill and reap the reward of the climb! (See the original photo in colour.)

On Mull, I spotted a white lighthouse almost floating in the water in a distance. I asked the bus driver what that was, and he said, “That’s Lismore.” I later found that the lighthouse was indeed Eilean Musdile on the island of Lismore, not too far from Mull. Such beautiful scenery, and the lighthouse appeared so small in the midst of the majestic mountains in the background!

The first thing I noticed about Tobermory as I got off the bus was the row of houses in all sorts of vibrant vibrant colours lined up along the main street. Such a cute little island town!

Isle of Mull, Scotland, taken on June 14, 2015

It is interesting to look at what’s beneath your feet from a different perspective, as sometimes we don’t pay much attention to the road we walk. That was exactly what I did on the Isle of Mull, near Duart Castle. Tired after a long hike, I lay down on the grass, the very ground that I had stepped on as I arrived at this place. From this point of view, the mountains in a distance looked so small and insignificant, yet I knew not to be fooled! How many more steps would it take to get to the other side of the waters? I wondered…!

Where Am I?
