Menekuri pagi hingga malam dengan aktivitas lab yang memburu, eksperimen yang berantakan, hingga memperbaiki instrumen-instrumen yang membuat pusing tujuh keliling. Ternyata, semua tantangan dunia terasa manis ketika hari ditutup dengan hafalan Quran yang mengalir penuh berkah.
Bagaimana rasanya mempertahankan hafalan Quran di tanah Skotlandia, Britania Raya?

Dalam buku - DIARY SANG PEMIMPI.
Last year, I spent Litha, the Summer Solstice with my Dad and family up at the magickal Cairn Holy Standing Stones and Megalithic Burial Chambers, here in Scotland. It is enchanting to say the least, but it is not just the Stones, there is much more to see and to learn! Over the years, many ancient and early tools and treasures have been unearthed near this location.The grass was dark green, with beautiful Daisy flowers blooming on every inch of it. The Sun was glowing in the Sky and the Magick was still very much there, at these ancient Stones! Many, many thousands of years old, these Standing Stones are a place of beauty, of history and of #Magick
I charged some of my crystals on these stones, then sat and took in the surroundings, wondering what Rituals, Ceremonies or Lunar Observations took place at this Stone Circle! ♥ ♡
Bienvenidos a Inverness, puerta de entrada a las Highlands! En gaélico (inbhir Nis) Está situada a orillas del río Ness y es el punto de partida si se quiere recorrer las tierras altas. La ciudad en sí es muy pequeña, pero encierra el misticismo de todo lo que la rodea. El camino hacia el lago Ness se puede hacer andando, y es imperdible. Los colores que se ven en otoño ( época en la que fui) son dignos de la paleta de un pintor. Quedan a 20 minutos del centro las Ness Islands que son el mismo parque que se ve a la vera del Río. Inverness no dejó de sorprendernos, no pensamos que era tan hermosa y cálida, a pesar que los recibió con - 3 °C grados. Alquilamos auto los tres días que estuvimos en Inverness y no me alcanza un solo post para describir lo bien que la pasamos ahí. Iré subiendolos de a poco. Te animas a recorrerla conmigo? #inverness#scotland#highlands#love#travel#lovetotravel#britain#nessie#lochness

Finally managed to capture one of the Glen Etive stags this weekend during our little 3 day run around Scotland 🏴. We managed to tick off some seriously British bucket list items for my Canadian mother-in-law, @cindyvipond and gave her what I hope was a really unforgettable holiday here and put her at ease knowing @missvipond is happy, safe and surrounded by beauty.
Cindy also incredibly kindly encouraged me to invite @nicholas_bartosiak along for the ride, which added a lot to the trip because he had us in stitches of laughter the whole time.
Finally thanks to @gillhill1650 for providing one hell of a spread back in Lancaster and ending the long weekend with a roast dinner to write about. The house was full of laughter and love, it really felt like such a happy home and made me quite proud of the friends and family I have around me.
Thanks to everyone involved, it really was the perfect weekend 🤙🏽
There was a bit of an overnight snowfall on #speyside last night. Not quite a #winterstorm but still the perfect opportunity to place this stunning dram in its natural environment.

A bouquet of tropical fruit and candied sweets are perfectly balanced with underlying wine notes.
Soft sweet notes reminiscent of candied fruit and Turkish delight develop into flavours of mouth watering lychee. The fusion of sweet flavours is soon met with a rich drying sensation from the Icewine.
