We had a very long first day, having got up at 4:15am to catch our flight (thanks to Easyjet and kiwi.com who conspired to change the time of our flight from 9am to 7.35am and not tell us (we thwarted them by discovering the night before). But we made it to Kirkwall in Orkney which we came to because it was the furthest we could get by plane in the UK (apart from Shetland but Steph vetoed the ferry back from there). Kirkwall has turned out to be lovely, sunny and beautiful. I’m hoping to look round some of the shops today and we’re planning to visit Skara Brae, an ancient Neolithic site. We’re leaving open the possibility of staying another night but may leave this afternoon if we feel ready – in which case we’ll be doing our first triprandomiser search!
