Unsure whether I’m more alarmed by the crying child heads framing it or the devil fox knocker in the middle of it: good morning.
National Museum of Scotland Never ever tire of visiting this beautiful building. I could spend hours just admiring the architecture, never mind the exhibits. There's a fab robot exhibit on at the moment. Not advisable if, like my sister you have a fear of AI taking over the world 🤖 According to my son, it was pretty awesome, but he was a little disappointed that there were no Daleks (geek chat on whether daleks are truly robots ensued) How was your weekend? We were one flamingo down this weekend, my eldest has gone on a school trip - to Italy. I don't know who has been more nervous about it, her or me 🧭🗺️🏞️ Does it get easier as they get older? The rational part of me is absolutely thrilled that she gets this marvelous opportunity to travel, so very lucky. The smother part of me (sometimes I feel I have the tendency to be a little bit like Beverley from the Goldbergs 🙈) is counting the days till she's home and safe 🤗 ~ 🗺️ 🧭 🏞️ #hiddenedinburgh #igersedinburgh #edinburghlife #edinburghhighlights #thisisedinburgh #loveedinburgh #scotlandisnow #scotspirit #edinphoto #loveedinburgh #OnGoogleMaps #straightfacade #rsa_architecture #ig_architecture #bitsofbuildings #prettylittletrips #doortraits #doorsandwindows #suitcasetravels #postcardplaces #acolorstory #architecture_hunter #doorsofinstagram #edinburghsnapshots #guardiancities #bestcitybreaks #just_features #bitsofbuildings #lovegreatbritain #whpwanderlust

Fancy buying a bothy? This one is genuinely for sale (*) at the moment. It’s miles from anywhere, sits next to a burn with a wee bridge, and surrounded by heather moorland. Absolute gem of a site, so what’s stopping you?! - (* - bothy comes attached to a 7461 acre grouse moor and includes a few thousand red grouse, a couple of houses, a farm, and some fishing rights. Yours for only £8.75m). - - I’d been eyeing up this bothy for a while on the map, but had always been put off by the walk in. Bit the bullet a few weeks back and threw my bike in the back of the car and cycled out to it. Great fun! - #scotland #bothy #cottage #hygge #seeingthepretty #whimsicalwonderfulwild #asecondofwhimsy #bitsofbuildings #hiddenscotland #distractionsandinspirations #folktravel #exploreeverything #wanderfolk #best_earthscapes #gottalove_a_ #getoutstayout #artofvisuals #folkscenery #stayandwander #lifeofadventure
Newly cleared, stacked and sorted with a spring cleaning zest of enthusiasm only a new year could bring.
Malls, you can have ‘em, this is how I like to shop.
Well, I hope you all had a fantastic weekend my friends! ..... Here’s, again, a throwback to my trip to the Netherlands. In this case, a street with some beautiful houses 🏘 in Oss . ⁉️: I don’t travel a lot these days. And you?

Snow white
Feeling lucky to be alive today for no particular reason (so for every reason I guess.) Here’s an unrelated pic of a pretty corner in Greenpoint, just because. 💕

Tune up city!
Wintery tones in a wintery setting
I think this home would look a little better with some snow 🤔 Unfortunately our snow storm turned to rain giving us just a wet Sunday 🌧️

Found this gem on my phone today from our Honeymoon 🌴 I was either really happy in this picture or ready to punch him. I can’t be sure. 🤷🏼‍♀️ : : : #iloveyou #stlucia #hepickedthisdressouthimself #armani #notohio #marriedmemories #brideandgroom #randomfountain #burnmesun
Little pockets of life and adorable restaurants, in between all our big NYC skyscrapers. #streetsofnewyork #strideby #chasing_facades
Forever in love with Fife’s fishing villages ✨ Half of me is hoping for snow in the next few months, and the other half is already dreaming of summer sunshine at the harbour, my pale arms tanning & fish supper in hand ♥️ #storiesfromscotland
{ This place ☕️❤️} // Je fais une petite pause dans mon shooting client de l’après midi pour venir discuter un peu ici ! L’avantage de travailler pour soit et à la maison 👌🏼. - - Vous me demandez souvent ou je trouve l’inspiration pour mes photos Instagram et dans mon travail ! Quand un projet est nouveau je dirais que ça me vient assez facilement. Là où c’est plus compliqué c’est pour shooter les mêmes produits, par exemple pendant toute une année pour un contrat mensuel. Dans ce genre de cas je m’aide de Pinterest, Instagram, j’achète de nouveaux accessoires pour varier et me donner de nouvelles idées. Mes voyage et rencontres sont une immense source d’inspiration pour moi. En rentrant de New York je bouillonnais d’idées et d’envie ! Certains lieux aussi comme des cafés ou des endroits où je me sens bien peuvent aussi m’aider 📸. La musique aide à se détendre et faire une pause aussi 🤪. - - Et vous ? Une source d’inspiration dans la vie de tous les jours ? Vous me surprenez toujours avec vos réponses ! 🤓
This time of year is perfect for exploring new towns & villages, snooping around shops & markets & taking pit stops for tea & cake. I love the summer months but I’m always slightly relieved to be wrapping up warm & getting out & about exploring. . . . #whpwanderlust #thisismykingdom #myeverydaymagic #darlingplaces #exploreeverything #neverstopexploring #goexplore #catchthemoment #mytinyatlas #lifewellcaptured #prettycities #darlingescapes #starttheadventure #theslowdowncollective #aseasonalshift #kindredmoments #bitsofbuildings #facadelovers #fromwhereistand #architextures #archilovers
Freezing, near-zero temperatures? These leaves clearly missed the memo
The beautiful (yet unfortunately when I stopped by, closed) Charles Gates Dawes House, now the Evanston History Center
Punch buggy yellow 💛 Spotted this little ray of sunshine while out for a walk today and it reminded me of a game friends and I used to play on road trips as a kid. Did you ever play the punch buggy game? 😂 The rules are simple - spot a VW beetle before your car companions, yell punch buggy followed by the colour, and whack them on the arm while the parent driving has a small meltdown about the whole situation 🤜🏼🤭🤣 . . . . . #asundaycarpic #soloparking #verytandc #goingoutlondon #visitlondon #vwlove #shepherdsbush #timeoutlondon #lovegreatbritain #yellowcar #topukphoto #whpwanderlust #volkswagenbeetle #vwbeetle #visitengland #photosofbritain #whitecity #architectanddesign #itssolondon #thisislondon #londonguru #londonbylondoners #persuepretty #exploringlondon #bitsofbuildings #straightfacades #facadelovers #chasing_facades #doortraits #straightfacade
Can’t get enough of all these tiles ♥
More of the sunshine we had on Thursday please 🌈
🌈 Dunbar high street 🌈 love being able to pop here (especially for the delicious bread at @dunbarcommunitybakery 🥖) Did you know that Mary Queen of Scott's was meant to have taken refuge in Dunbar Castle, which now sits in ruins looking over the harbour? Anyone seen the film yet? I really want to go and see it, but don't want to be disappointed if its terrible ~ 🎞️ 📽️ 🎬 #whpwanderlust #rsa_doorsandwindows #building_shotz #ic_architecture #lovegreatbritain #mybritain #hiyapapayaphotoaday #littlebitsof_life #dunbar #theeverydayproject #rsa_doorsandwindows #scotspirit #ig_treasures #eastlothian #mytinyatlas #prettiestpastels #prettylittletrips #pocket_colors #scotspirit #lovescotland #beautiful_destinations #scotlandlover #tv_colors #ig_architecture #bitsofbuildings #prettylittletrips #doortraits #best_worldplaces #suitcasetravels #postcardplaces

“Travel is the bridge between you and everything.” {Rumi} ~ Is there any better feeling than waking up in a new city and heading out to explore? Having the most gorgeous weekend wandering round Barcelona and its quirky gothic quarter. Hope your weekend has been full of adventures, big or small ❤️✨ #whpwanderlust
Beautiful weekend in Zurich ✨ Switzerland is so central that we tend to spend all our weekend traveling around. This weekend since a long time we spent it here in Zurich strolling in the city hopping to nice cafes. Also we watched the movie Colette, it’s about literature and women empowerment, loved it! ———————— Joli week-end à Zurich ✨ La Suisse étant très centrale on a tendance à passer nos week-ends à voyager dans les pays alentours mais cette fois depuis longtemps on l’a entièrement passé à Zurich à flâner dans les petites ruelles et découvrir de jolis cafés. Aussi on a été voir le film Colette, tellement aimé !
A lot of our favourite posts we share are of cityscapes and the exteriors of buildings but we do have a soft spot for the inside of the National Museum of Scotland. What's your favourite building to explore? . . Thank you for letting us share @shkthrne
There are few things that tea and crumpets can’t solve!! ☕️
