6:57 AM - Things I miss about the old country

Following discussion with Grump I decided to post these because every now and then I add a new good one. There are things that don’t need to be listed like friends and family because they’re a given.

#1
Dry stone walls and ancient carvings / crucifixes / gateposts whilst out walking.

#2
A feeling of really being away from it all. Alarmingly I haven’t achieved this yet in the Canadian back-country as there are too many quad bikers / dirt bikers around these parts.

#3
People with strong and varied accents.

#4
Sheep - seeing them, hearing them and eating them. That's it!

#5
Heather.

#6 Highland coo.
