Almost everyone knows Scotland. But we know it as no other. One of the important things is of course our Haggis! As we are the haggis backpackers! But our movies and music have had a great influence on everyone. If you are not yet familiar with Scotland we urge you to visit it. It’s rich of culture and other places which are a treat to the eye.

Imagine the beautiful scenery around you while listening to one of our traditional music. Most importantly of course it he Bagpipe! More about that later. Do you notice we already start to talk like we are one of them? Do you know why? Of course not shouts William! I know, I know. But we have been invited by the official bagpipe community here to learn play this instrument.

Therefore I feel we are already one with each other and it’s our music. Not theirs alone, but ours. Aye! Scotland!


Freeeedooooomm!!! Wow, tears in our eyes. The moment William shouted it out loud, not carring about his punishment. Just amazing.

We are procrastinating of course, because we still need to get our stuff together and were to happy to start this blog already as we found our partner.

Almost on our way but let’s us tell you about this amazing movie Braveheart. It’s just amazing, it’s already quite old but it’s actually time-less.

Played in and directed by Mel Gibson he makes us pro

First stop

Wow! With our bagpipe on our bag and a DVD of Braveheart in our hands we arrived in Scotland. It’s not as easy as it looked. We had to do a lot of preps! When you receive the chance to live and work abroad especially with your best mate you have to take it serious. It’s not all fun and games mate. There are many things to think about, (are you reading this in Mel Gibson’s voice? Good!) as for example. When something happens you need to be insured by an insurance agency. There are many good ones, but locally, you have to find an international health insurance which will cover almost everything. Luckily we already speak English so that was not a problem for the service. Other things you have to think of is, WHERE TO GET THE RIGHT BEER!

Haha aye, it’s true. Finding a good pub is very important. Especially when you want to make new friends. When you don’t have a place of your own and you need to find a new set of friends, where better to start than at the bar. Also very important is to know new people because of job opportunities. Well enough seriousness, let’s go to Braveheart shall we!
