Hot Saturday in July? What better than to head to Park Spoor Noord at the Cargo Zomerbar for the Meat & Beer Fest? We invited Chris and Hannah to come to Antwerp and we enjoyed a nice summer evening with plenty of – you guessed it – meat and beer!
Day Five in Scotland began very early with the morning ferry at 6:30 am! We had a beautiful view of the sun rising over the island of Jura.
Once we landed on the otherside of the water we drove to Glasgow. On the way we stopped in the beautiful Inveraray for a cup of coffee.
We also passed Loch Lomond – my first time seeing it in real life. I grew up listening to The Corries, so I was happy to have a view of the bonnie banks o’ Loch Lomond.
Right before entering Glasgow we stumbled upon another whisky distillery, Auchentoshan. You may think after being in Islay that we were whiksied out, but no!
Back in Glasgow we decided to take on the British tradition of a pub crawl. I did a bit of research beforehand to plan our route and it was so much fun. We did manage to stop at some point for a delicious steak.
Day Four was our last full day in Islay, so we needed to make the most of it!
With only two full days on the Isle of Islay, we had a lot to fit in!
Day Two we made our way from Glasgow to Kennacraig for the ferry to Port Ellen on the Isle of Islay. Before reaching Kennacraig, we stopped at Loch Goil and at the Fyne Ales Brewery for lunch and a tasting.
For our May vacation, Koen and I headed to Scotland with our friends Chris and Hannah. Our main destination was the Isle of Islay, but to start and finish the trip we spent some time in Glasgow.
