I climbed Ben Nevis!

Thursday, September 15, 2011

The Highlands were BEAUTIFUL - but cold so Im kind of still in chock here being back in Spain that has its hotest summer in 50 years.

Every day in Scotland we had rain and 10C and on top of Ben Nevis it was 2C and hard wind = freezing cold.

Here are some pics from the trip:
